Miss Eisley's Baptism

On Sunday Eisley was baptized at Epiphany Lutheran. I thought it would be fun to show pictures of Justin and I on our baptism days - 24 years ago.

So here is the Sander family, dressed to the nines for 1984. Justin was baptized on April 1st. In the front are Justin's siblings, Adrienne, Katie, & Todd.

And here is my family on September 23rd, 1984 at St. John's Lutheran. Mom had the oh so trendy Farrah Fawcett hair going on. Me? I had my thumb in my mouth, of course (a habit I didn't completely break until the tender age of 9!)

Here's me on my sister's lap in the dress that Eisley wore for her baptism, almost exactly 24 years later.

It was Reformation Sunday, so the church was decked out in red and black. Here we are with Peter and Angela up at the front of the church. Eisley started fussing about this time (hungry).

Eisley's name on the banner for her special day:

Here we are posing afterward with pastor and Godparents:

After crying up in front of church, Eisley was tuckered out and slept through the rest of the service in Daddy's arms:

Posing with Godparents and Grandparents after the service:

Godmother Angela holding Eisley and glowing the way pregnant women do:

Any family out there who have anymore great photos to send, please do!


  1. I love the pic of Eisley sleeping during service :]

  2. I love the baptisim dress, sentimental. I love your Mom's Ferrah duo, great hair.
