"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Sunday fun

Today Aaron was baptized! We don't waste any time around here.
My cousin and his wife are Aaron's godparents, pictured here with our awesome priest. :) I love this picture.

Baptism Day also means I have pictures of what I wore! Linking up with Rosie again for My Sunday Best.
My dress: Lularoe, Nicole style
Chase's outfit: Target - pretty sure I got it for like $12 a couple years ago
Landon's shirt and belt: Carter's
(no clue where Logan's stuff is from, if y'all cared, and Landon's pants were hand-me-downs)

Logan's parents on the left, my parents on the right
Landon actually wore the same outfit Chase is wearing for Chase's baptism...so obviously I had to keep the tradition going. And all 3 boys have worn the same outfit when getting baptized! I wish I had gotten a better picture of Aaron in it...
Lighting sucks but here's our little setup that my detail-oriented self just had to do (I have a problem, I really do). But! I totally made the banner several months ago and ordered all the food, including the cake, which is a first for me. (Huge sheet cake from Costco for $19! Hollerrrr)

And in other news, we officially have a 2-year old in the house again.
No cake, no clean bowls...just ice cream in whatever container we could find, complete with 2 candles. Because we're fancy. #postpartumlife

I'm hoping to get back to some real writing soon, but my mom is leaving tomorrow (*sob*) so I may have some adjusting to do first. She's been the absolute best!

One last thing! If you could say a prayer for my grandmother (my dad's mom), I would really, really appreciate it. She's not doing well and likely won't make it to the end of the month.

I don't want to end on a depressing note, so here I will leave you a quote from a book I'm reading by Peter Kreeft, Prayer for Beginners: "Prayer does not exist for its own sake; it exists to transform us into saints."
