Gracie Gets Baptized

Gracie Gets Baptized

Gracie was baptized on August 31st, 2008. Angie and I choose Lawrence and Jenny to be her Godparents. Father Steve presided over the ceremony. The Hooks and Musselmans came up from Columbus, and everyone that lives close by showed up as well. The most appealing thing about the way the baptism unfolded was that Jude and Noah were able to be on the alter as it occurred. Of course, they found the entire event very interesting. We did run into some problems as, at one point, Noah felt the need to make sure Father Steve knew that he was the brother that would get to blow out the candle.

Afterwards, everyone spent a good part of the afternoon at the Lackman’s, where a fair amount of political discussion took place, in addition to the more traditional conversations that one would expect after such an event.

Thanks to Charles for taking pictures during the ceremony. A gallery of images can be viewed here.

Kailynn Gets Baptized

Kailynn and Father Steve

Kailynn got baptized last Sunday. A lot of the relatives showed up. The Hooks were there, as were the Musselmans sans Ray. After mass we spent several hours at the Lackman’s house, eating (a lot) and visiting. I put up some images. You can check them out here.
