This past Sunday was nothing short of beautiful. Our son was Baptized and as parents we couldn’t be happier for him to begin his relationship with God. My husband and I chose my older sister (Cynthia) and brother in law (Chuck) to be his godparents, we couldn’t have chosen a better couple to guide him in his journey with God and life.
To begin the festivities, we got his very first haircut on Saturday, which he did good with for a bit and then started to scream and cry. Luckily he was almost done so he didn’t cry for too long. Sunday morning, we got him dressed in his cute outfit and new shoes, as well as getting our other kids ready for Church. We had our regular church service and following that we had the ceremony for the Baptism. We had a little reception for him at our house with a sandwich bar, cold pasta, fruit bowl, deviled eggs, sweet tea and sodas......let's not forget the cake and ice cream. We also purchased a waterslide for the kids to play on but my husband (Steven), sister in law (Megan) and myself had a blast on it too. That’s right we played on the slide with them and I won't say who, but someone tweaked their back trying to do a trick going down the slide (and no it wasn’t one of the kids). The best part about the entire day was that we got to share it with family. This Texas heat is no joke, and everyone was real troopers being outside.
All in all, it was a beautiful day and we appreciate everyone who helped put it on. Come 9 p.m. we were all exhausted and ready for bed.
