Lilyanne's Big Day
Now that we've had a few days to rest up.
She handled it much better than the rest of us. Of course, being pre-verbal meant she didn't talk herself into severe hoarseness. And the ability to nap while much excitement swirls around doesn't hurt.
Back at Great-Grandma's (I keep forgetting that I am Grandma) and modeling the antique baptismal gown.

After the baptism. (That's me trying to hide behind the paschal candle. )

Lilyanne makes her debut in Chinese society at her Red Egg and Ginger party. Aunt Franny's dress made quite a splash. ( I left the matching wristlet for her red envelopes in the car. Ooops.)
Em and Ed are 'grown-ups' now and had to hand out red envelopes, too. [ They are for children and single people, so there was no envelope for me.] Fran has some nice pics of the dress on her blog.

It's about time the pics showed up! :)
You need to continue with your photo of the day!
I'll leave my camera out for you! :)

Yeah, but the photo of the day was usually a variation on the orange cone and the sink hole. Once some of the snow melts and the hole starts sinking again, I should be back in business...
