More about Anna

Anna was baptized yesterday (June 3) at our church, St. Mary Orthodox Christian Church. She was very good and only fussed a little bit. Her godmother is Justine Nightingale, a wonderful friend of ours, and a homeschooling mother of two little girls.
Her patron saint is St. Anna the Prophetess. St. Anna's story can be found in the bible, Luke 2:34-38. St. Anna is commemorated on the church calendar February 3, which is just a few days before Anna's birthday, February 6. This, of course, is why we named her Anna :).

Here is Anna with Justine in her new dress:
