Jack's Baptist!

That's what his sister says, anyway. J keeps saying "when is Jack going to be Baptist again?" or "What is he wearing to his Baptist?"

She is still working on the terminology, but she was a good kid the entire time. Father Tom was fabulous and included the kids in everything he could. M got to get the holy oil for anointing his head, S and J helped with the water. When it was time to bless the water, I think the kids were expecting a magic trick as the priest turned the tap water to holy water. It was very theatrical and the ceremony was better than I could have hoped for. It can be overwhelming sometimes, seeing all of our kids - realizing that there are five. During the blessing over me, which God knows I needed, I choked up hearing Father say how very blessed we are. My four beautiful girls, my handsome son, all in there - in perfect health with our amazing, supportive family and friends around us (or with us in spirit - Vic!).

Blessed indeed!

Congratulations on Jack's baptism!
Thanks for thinking of me, Sandi! I was certainly thinking about all of you. I really wished we could have been there. (We got home around 5pm on Sunday.)
He looks so cute in the pic! Who did you decide to ask to be godparents?
I'll talk to you soon. I'll be home all week.

I spy
