The Christening!

So we had our youngest boy christened last weekend which was so special and even more fun!
Even his big bro got dressed up for the occasion! What a ham!
Getting ready for the big event!

Us waiting outside the chapel…

Mommy Daddy, and GodParents
They were rushing us on to the next baby so we couldn’t pose for a proper pic!

We had a pretty amazing party afterwards, 50-60 people came through its was kinda beautiful all the support we got for our little boy…
We even got a 5 burner grill from home depot. Best. Grill. Ever.

The poor boy was passed around all over but he was a trooper!

All tuckered out!

It was a really good time, and for our first major house event, it went off without a hitch!
