Party Time!

Weekend posts not finished yet! There's still the party to talk about!

After Sophia's baptism we had a fabulous luncheon for her at my parent's house! My parents were so gracious to let us use their place for the party. Our house, while perfect for our little family of 3, is not big enough for a 30+ person party.

We had a yummy lunch of pulled pork from our favorite local farm, New Creations, and an amazing cake made by Sophia's Grandma.

Sophia's dad helped her out and cut the cake for her. She decided to wait a few years before wielding a knife.

We had a gorgeous day so friends and family were able to spread out all over the house, porch, and patio. Many people came to share in the special day including family (you can skip the following if you don't want to know everyone who was there but I want Sophia to know who came to celebrate her day)-Great Grandma, Nana, Pappy, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Kristen, Uncle Dan, Aunt Laura, Uncle Mark, Uncle David, Great Uncle John, Great Uncle Aunt Annalynn, Cousin Jenny, Great Aunt Rita, and Great Uncle Carlton. Friends of Mommy and Daddy- Amy Haffey, Jason Abernathy, Michelle and Ben Mannino, Caitlin Bell, Laura Englehart, and Joe Mallin. Finally some special people in our life- Kate Gillooly the Minister of Christian Formation at our church, and the Mawhorter family, Nana and Pappy's neighbors and a family that mom (Karen) babysat for for many year.

After taking a nap Sophia entertained her guests including her Pappy Clark.

Sophia received many wonderful gifts including a special book from her Uncle and Godfather David- And Tango makes Three and her very own rocking chair.

Sophia would only let mommy hold her for most of the time but she entertained everyone with her beautiful smile!

We had a wonderful day and we feel so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends who shared in our special day.
