Easter 2009! Our oldest daughter and her husband joined the church today. Their oldest daughter was Christened here about five years ago and today their four year old son and one year old daughter were Christened.
I've included a photo of the Christening gown. My first cousin Martha Pullen (www.marthapullen.com) had the gown made for our youngest Molly, sixteen years ago. The oldest granddaughter wore it and today the baby.
We will put it back in storage for the next baby to come along.
I can tell you that is one more hard to iron dress. It took me about 1.5 hrs to iron it. I counted last night and including the lace on the sleeves and neckline.... there are 31 ROWS of lace.
There are three rows of 3-pin tucks and two rows of 5-pin tucks.
We also have water that was brought back for us from the River Jordon that is used for the Christening
