The Baptism

Davis was baptized on July 10th at Our Lady of the Pines Catholic church in Conifer.  This is the church where my dad is a deacon and my dad baptized Davis in a beautiful ceremony following the morning mass. Lots of friends and family were there to show their support.  Davis wore a baptismal gown which has been in our family for many years.  My aunt and mom both wore it as well as my cousins, and my brothers and I, so it was very special to have him wear the gown too, and continue the family tradition. Following the ceremony we had a lunch reception at my parents house and everything worked out perfectly.  Even the afternoon rains held off till the last guest was on their way home.  :)

Davis what a beautiful day when you were baptised, with your grandpa doing the honors, the tradition of your baptism gown. It was all a very special day, and I was honored to be there and to finally meet you. Love and God's Blessings for you always. Aunt Dee
