If you didn’t know this before, my dad is a preacher and I think (although he may have a different opinion) is that one of the best parts of being both a dad and a minister is that he’s performed the wedding ceremonies of three of his children, co-officiated one, and dedicated four out of his six grandchildren. I think that’s pretty special for all of our family.
Dad dedicated Marion at our home church, but since her birth, he’s resigned/somewhat retired. We weren’t exactly sure how Eliza’s christening was going to go, but one of the benefits to being a preacher is not needing a physical church for some things. We decided since all the family was going to be over Christmas day, to just have her dedication before our family lunch.
So we did! A bit unconventional perhaps, but I thought it was a beautiful ceremony and what better than to be christened on Christmas!
I’ll also go out on a limb and say this is probably the only dedication my dad has done in a fly fishing t-shirt!
Eliza wore the same christening gown Marion wore.
It’s an antique gown from their Bebe and priceless to us
Just realized neither of my girls was wearing shoes. And I thought I was doing so well!
