Anna and her cousin Carlee are just 7 months apart. They don't get to see each other a whole lot -- about once a year when we visit California in the summer -- but they have such a cute, close friendship.
So, it was pretty exciting when my parents told me that they were going to bring Carlee along with them to the baptism! As expected, the girls were attached at the hip . . . . they played, created art, hugged, shared stuffed animals (Carlee's puppy spent the night at our house), and just had fun being girls.
My mom related this little story to me . . . as Carlee packed for the trip she was trying to decide what to wear. Both she and Anna have matching white dresses & purple boleros from Mason's wedding this summer. Anna wore that white dress in the baptism pictures I posted a few days ago. Carlee told my mom that at first she thought about wearing her matching dress. But then she remembered that this was Anna's special day and she should wear something else.
How sweet is that?! From a 7 year old.
Carlee is such a darling. We're so glad that she could come spend some special time with Anna.
