Sour Dough and Sidney's Baptism

Sara was my best friend in high school. We were almost always together and I may have been at her house more than my own... One thing that stands out in my mind from Sara's house though was the sour dough bread her mom would make. Oh. My. Word. Seriously, that stuff was SO good. Especially when it was just out of the oven. Yum. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I loved pulling up to Sara's house and walking in to that kitchen with the smell of that bread.

You may think I'm exaggerating all of this but for my 18th birthday, Sara's mom gave me a bag with all the ingredients for the bread, including the starter. YES!! It was the best birthday gift I'd ever received up to that point in my life. And my mom has been making the bread ever since. haha! I've made it a handful of times but mom has the starter and she keeps on making it. And I keep enjoying it each time I go see her!

Well, it's many years later and Sara's mom actually doesn't make the bread anymore. But, I did get to go into that kitchen a few weeks ago to enjoy a super delicious meal. Sara had emailed me in February because she and Pete would be bringing Sidney home to be baptised at the church where Sara and Pete were married. She not only wanted me there but asked if I could take some pictures too. Um, yes, I think I can manage that :-)

It was a good day to celebrate faith, love and this beautiful little girl. Enjoy!
Four beautiful generations.
Sidney is the fifth one in her family to wear this gown at their baptism. In other words it's really old! And still really pretty!
Would you look at that sweet face.

The kids were on their way to children's church but still stopped to admire Sidney before they went!
Oh my goodness, that smile! And that light!

She just looks like a porcelain doll. Gorgeous.
I adore the look on her face in this one.
ah! Those blue eyes!
So precious. Seriously.
She was tired of pictures. But she did so well all day!
