I wrote here about how our church has recently renovated our sanctuary and that on the day we rededicated it, Clara wore the dress that I had worn thirty years ago when I was dedicated in that same congregation. It was a special day!
I didn't get any fabulous shots of her in the dress though, since it was rainy, so we had another photo shoot so I could make sure these memories were captured.
Here are a few "dressing room" photos before we got outside.
And here's our girl, at eighteen months.
If you're happy and you know it...
Clap your hands!
(She's happy. We know it.)
I should say, this slip was handmade and the tatting hand done by my great-grandmother (Clara's great-great-grandmother) Beulah Craig. Such a beautiful, classic, precious heirloom.
And here she is in the dedication dress.
