Adam's Baptism

Yesterday we got to celebrate Adam's baptism into the Catholic Church. It was an amazing day and we were so happy to get to celebrate with family and friends.

Father Bill, who married us, was also there yesterday to baptise Adam which is great! We were also happy to be joined by our lifelong friends, Don and Rosemary, who made the trip from Myrtle Beach to be there. Our family friends, John and Denise, were also there, as were my family, and Andy's parents and his sister Bebe and her family.

We of course were also joined by Adam's Godparents, Greg and Erica, and we couldn't be more thrilled for Adam to have them in such a special role in his life.

Adam did quite well the whole time, and only fussed a little when Father Bill poured the water over his head, as he got a little over zealous and splashed a bunch of water in Adam's eye. Oh well, I guess that means he got even more blessed yesterday!

After mass we headed to my parent's house for a celebration brunch. We had a great spread, to include some egg casseroles, a lite waldorf salad, and a creme' brulee french toast casserole (thanks to Cindy for the recipe). To top it all off, Erica made an amazing cake. I think I'm still on a sugar rush from it! :)

What a great day for our family! Adam is such a lucky and blessed baby boy!
