Our First Baptism


The pictures are hiding a very hectic morning with last minute ironing, polishing and frantic rushing to get loaded in the car. If you look close, you can see a child who decided to throw a grumpy fit right before the baptism. And someone in the photo still needs to lose 15 pounds.

And while the pictures might show some of the amazing joy and peace we felt throughout the day. Or the happiness our Big Guy felt weeks leading up to his baptism. Photos can never adequately capture family moments like when we got home - where both kids and parents collapsed on Mom & Dad's bed to simply be together for most of the afternoon. These are days for rejoicing!

Oh, the joy!



My sweet sister-in-law tells me that once your oldest is baptized, the rest start flying like dominos. I have a scary feeling she might be right.

Congrats to your Big Guy! So proud of him. Your SIL is right about the domino affect. But you, my dear, are wrong about worrying about a MEASLY 15 lbs. My first thought when I saw your picture was "what a hot mama!" Seriously. Of course, I'm not in a position to give sympathy as I'm still in the weight gaining mode.

Glad it was such a wonderful day!

Such a fun day. We are so proud of James. And he looked so handsome in his suit. We were happy to be there to experience it with him. And don't we all still have 15 to lose. :)

What a great experience, and your SIL is right, prepare for the dominoes to fall! Time just flies! What a beautiful family!
