Emma's Big Month

Emma's big month was last month, April.  She's having a medium month this month, what with the school year wrapping up and the attendant hoopla, but last month was:

1.  8th Birthday
2.  Baptism

Big.  Here's a pictorial recap

Emma's Birthday was April 12
 Which was a Friday (a great day for a birthday).  She had a neighborhood friend party at Color Me Mine, where the kids got to pick out their own ceramic tchotchke to paint

The store kept the figurines for a few days and fired them, then we picked them up a week later, nicely glazed and glossy, and delivered them to the party goers
 April 20 was Baptism Day.  Two of Emma's pals, Jacqui and Ashlyn, were baptized that day, too.  The three girls sang a lovely number together ("I Come to the Water"). It was a wonderful day for our family.  And don't you think Emma has that "just baptized" look in her eyes in the photo below?
Many of our dear family members and friends joined us 
Including Grandbaby Mac (who I don't believe could be cuter)
