Malia's babtism~

Malia Was baptized with her cousin Riley in April.
These two have been trotting around together for many years...
It was a beautiful day.
For a beautiful girl (s).

Aunty Kelly sent them leis straight from Hawaii,
which meant a lot because Malia was born in Hawaii.
The fragrance of the orchids brought me back
to the days I would hold her tiny bird head in my hand.

And pray I would return her one day
with honor
to her creator.

She is a gift to our family.
The zing in our step and the zoom in our day...
Aunty kim has a knack for all things beautiful...
and lucky for me,
she planned the food:)
 Almost to lovely to eat...
But Henry didn't think so:)
My favorite part of the day was this note her cousin wrote her...


  1. so glad you posted this and so glad the leis made it in time.
    she is such a doll!!
