Cousins galore at baptism (1-9-10).
Proud Mommy with adorable daughter; Proud Grand-Mommies, too.
Proud Godfather (me!), Saturday, and a gorgeous baptismal gown, Sunday.
We went down to Iowa City this past weekend for my niece (and god-daughter) to be baptized. Besides the longer-than-expected drive down after work/school on Friday, the weekend was AWE-SOME! Spending time with by brother, his wife, and their two children is always so great. They always make us feel so welcomed in their home. It was really nice to be able to spend some time as 'just the eight of us.' on Saturday before the rest of the families came over. Then, having dinner with just about everyone on Saturday evening was a real pleasure as well. Sunday's baptism was nice - and my God-daughter did so well. She seemed to love the water. My brother and sister-in-law had a brunch at their house afterward. Everything was delicious and, again, so comfortable and inviting. My only wish was that our families lived closer so that we could do this more often.
God bless you, little one (and you, too, Big Guy, of course). We love you all.
