My Goddaughter

I gained a goddaughter this month.

 Isn't she a beauty?

I think this this picture below is the point when Buddy Boy's passy nearly went for a dunk in the fount.  And that's my first goddaughter standing just in front of me!  I am so honored to have been given this role in these girls' lives.
 Most of the group.

Mama had the post-Baptism party at her house.  In the flurry of preparation, she had a big salad bowl out on the kitchen counter, with some table linens draped over the side.  Little Guy sized up the arrangement and inquired if that was where the Baptism would be occurring.

My cousin said he didn't know how to hold a baby.  We scoffed.  We handed him Baby Girl.  We believed him.  ;)

Ok I have to come out of lurker land. Your brother's family must go to my church! My 3.5 yr old is obsessed with Fr. Bob. :) And this is so random, but I'm pretty sure your brother and sis in law were in our Engaged Encounters pre-marital class years ago. :)

It was indeed a great day___but all that beautiful and scrumptious food was prepared by Yarra H., my co-grandmother and co-hostess! Perfect friend and perfect to host a party with!
