My daughters are baptized

Religion is not a major part of my life, however it did form my ideas about life and how I see religious figures. For me religion is something that can be talked about for ever and some one has a disagreement with any point. I don't throw my values in any one's face and usually I keep it pretty under the radar with religious mobojumbo because its not my place to say one religion is higher than the other.

I was baptized when I was seven or eight as a Lutheran. My husband was never baptized. We were married at Grace Cathedral in 2008 because I was baptized. That meant to me that if my children were to get married in the future, they too would have to be baptized. Even in today's world no matter if you are one religion or another, being baptized is still regarded in some form as currency and sociably accepted. Entrance in a school, marriage, some organizations and even in death, being baptized is a requirement.

So for me baptizing my kids was something important to them instead of having a bath tub baptism and preform it ourselves (we are universal life church persons) we chose to have the baptism at the place we were married. Grace Cathedral. 

They only do baptisms 4 times a year. We were lucky that the baptism was in June. Bella turns three in a less than two weeks and Grace will be 6 months old next Saturday. The next one would have been in November. Not the best time for the family (Thanksgiving and all.).

Here are some pictures that I took before the ceremony. I got more of Bella than of Grace, however I am planing on when Grace is older have her do almost the same pictures as these. I don't think I can recreate them however I can try and get them close.

 The above pictures I am going to save for Bella's wedding day it seems the perfect picture to give her when she's just married. Maybe have the one with her and her dad and a picture of them walking down the isle when she's about to get married. The only thing I wish is that darn back pack wasn't there.
 The lone picture of Grace as she looks at the alter. Also another picture of Bella however she looks like she's 5 or 6 in this picture. Well enough of my religious pictures and cuteness.

Tomorrow is the first installment of #MLBMobyWrap! Stay tuned!
