I have a Goddaughter

A couple of weeks ago we took the white bus for its first road trip to visit Gran and Soot. It's great going up to visit. The MissyMoos do a lot of outdoors stuff as well as getting heaps of cousin time, as Aunty J lives only 5 minutes away.

This visit was no different with a birthday party and a baptism planned - two out of three cousins had "occasions" on the weekend. The 5th birthday party was held at a play centre on the Saturday. It was fun-filled and exciting, and it was lovely watching the kids all playing together.

You might remember the baby I was thankful for late last year? It was her baptism on the Sunday. Even more exciting was that Aunty J asked Hubby and I to be her Godparents. We've never been Godparents before, so we were honoured to be asked and to have a special part in our niece's life.

She's the family baby born after our own babies, the little one we will cherish who will always have a special place in our hearts for the special part we've committed to play in her life. The gift we bought for her (before we knew we were being asked to be Godparents!) says it all:

You are Special
