Baptism Anniversary

We mark Elizabeth's baptism every year with cake and ceremonial lighting of baptism candle. I rather incautiously told Elizabeth we'd have a barbecue and cake when her godparents came for her party. Being barbecue season, we had barbecue for dinner one night. Elizabeth promptly burst into tears when the cake and godparents failed to appear. Brendan and I had a horrible time trying to figure out what was wrong. Whoops!

 

Elizabeth got to pick her own cake but since she wanted a carrot cake with almonds there was chocolate too. Auntie Janice helped decorate, because Elizabeth felt a party needed "decowations". Godmother Rachel read some scripture about baptism and Mommy lit the baptism candle. Elizabeth held the candle for the first time, but managed not set fire to her hair. Then Elizabeth and Rachel played outside in Elizabeth's playhouse while Uncle Dave dangled his son upside-down.

What a great way to remind her that she need never know a time when she is not a daughter of God - and that there is a special family around her to remind her too!

Not to mention the opportunity to teach her that A => B does not mean B => A ;)
