Today Grace was baptized at the Church of the Good Shepherd. Mama dressed her up in a long and rather scratchy dress (ok, well 1 dress and two slips– one slip from each parent) and put a silly bonnet on her head that she feels made her look slightly like a conehead.

When the priest was asking her godparents and parents if they promised to renounce the forces of wickedness, etc. Grace vocalized her promise to do the same, and did the same for all of the vows. Once she was actually christened, however, (water hitting head), she got quiet, and was totally okay with being paraded down the isle of the church and then returned to her Daddy’s arms, where she fell asleep for the rest of the service until Miriam dismissed us and asked if she could hold Grace while she did (the children always gather around the priest who does the dismissal). Upon her return to her Daddy’s arms, she woke up.

After the service, we all returned home for a tasty brunch. There are still leftovers, so if you’re interested in shrimp cocktail, fruit salad, a veggie tray, mini muffins or banana bread, just give us a call!
