Day 1: Baptism Afghan


Luken's Afghan Upclose

This year, I am going to be sharing a photo I have taken each day for the 25 days of Christmas. I am hoping it will push me to take more photographs of all of the little things that I normally take for granted (or forget to capture).

Today was David Lukenray’s baptism. He was so excited to become an official member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents and Aaron’s parents were able to make it for the special day, along with a few aunts, uncles and cousins. It was so nice to visit and to participate in his special day.

His Grandma started the tradition of crocheting an afghan for each grandchild when they turn 8 years old. And it is one of my most favorite traditions. I love the idea of my children having a special blanket to remind them of this precious woman for many, many years to come. I enjoy crocheting, so I know that it requires a lot of time and a sacrifice, on her part. I am also a very visual person and I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy seeing these beauties lying across my kids’ beds and being reminded daily of how much my husband’s mom loves all of us.

This post is for my mother in law, for giving so much of herself and never (and I am serious about this), never asking for anything in return. She is such a great example of what an angel looks like. Love you, Mama C.
