Yesterday was a beautiful day. My youngest daughter, Sabrina, was baptized. Sure makes me feel old! I am a big cry baby, but I did so well. I only cried when I was hidden behind doors watching Sabrina walk into the font. I wish I could have taken a picture of that because I am afraid I'll forget it.

We were so glad to have family near who could be a part of our special day and friends who were also willing to get up early on a Saturday to be with us. Unfortunately, we only got a picture of the Gomez family (well, the part of the family that came) along with my family.

I had plastic cups that people could fill with yogurt and their choice of toppings: granola, coconut, mini chocolate chips, berries, strawberries, mandarin oranges, pecans, brown sugar, and grapes. I think that's all we had. I bought apples, but ran out of time to cut them up and include them. I think kiwi would be delish too. So many things you can add. It was very easy and I was glad that people really liked it and a few people even said they were going to "steal" the idea for their children's baptism brunches. It was an answer to a prayer for me to think of something fast that would be good.
I wish I would have taken photos of the people during the brunch. I just didn't want to get people eating. I hope that Sabrina will remember who was there and especially remember how she felt on this special day.
