We drove into Houston from Austin and made it in a little late (sorry everyone!), but the point is this: living here allows us to attend family events such as these. Even when announced with just a few day’s notice. It’s still a drive away, but it’s an improvement! Being from two different countries means that we will never be able to be close in proximity to both of our families, but now at least we are not far away from everyone (and everything).
So little Cheyenne was baptized today, in front of family and friends. She wore the same gown her mom wore for her baptism, the same gown Travis wore for his, and I am pretty sure, the same gown her granddad wore as well. I like that they’ve kept it in the family – I have kept mine too. To top things off, Cheyenne behaved really nicely, even with water being poured on her head.
My niece and I are now tied for sacraments (obviously ignoring the sacrament of marriage). Somehow, I am pretty sure that she’ll end up beating me as the years go by!
