Shopping with my Claire Bear

Tonight we started a tradition that is super exciting for our family. I took Claire, just her and me to find a baptism dress. We went to Costa Vida for dinner and then met up with Aunt Mandy to go to White Elegance and find the perfect dress. Claire was so excited. She has been looking forward to this ever since Grandma sent her the money to buy her dress. When we got to the store, it didn't take her long to find the "perfect" dress. Of course she is like her mom and has expensive taste but it really is a beautiful dress. Aunt Mandy had the perfect advice, she said this is like picking out your wedding dress Claire, you always try on three and then pick one. lol. So we tried on three and then bought the one she had picked first. She is so funny. Claire has such a unique personality. It was so fun to watch her get so excited about this next step in her life. She has watched many of her friends get baptised and now she is only one month away from her own. The best part about it is that her dad will get to do it! We didn't know if he would be well enough but if his recovery continues the way it is going he will be well enough! This is a huge miracle for our family! We are so excited for her to be baptised. I am proud of her for making this decision.
