Christening

It was a big day for Grace today as it was her Christening. The Christening was at our local Church and Grace as usual did great. Grace wore a Christening gown that all of Jen's family members have been Christened in for the last 95 years. We were a little worried that it wouldn't fit as she is a little bigger than most babies at Christening age, but a little butter on her thighs did the trick (just kidding). We slipped her jade Buddha necklace under her gown as a little tribute to her roots and culture. Some pics from our day below.

She looks great. Guess butter is handy for more than just bathing, huh?
