Lydia's Big Day

This weekend we took this:
Added a little bit of this:
Celebrated with a little bit of that:
And along with these people:
We had Lydia baptised.
Welcome to the Catholic faith, Lydia. I hope it warms your heart the way it does mine.


  1. adorable! Is she naked in the dunk picture?

  2. Yep. Nekkid as a jay bird. The Deacon who did the baptisms gave us the option of dripping water on her head or emmersion. Jer wanted emmersion. I thought, well, if Jesus did it, why not Lydia? Later I found Jer laughing hysterically at the thought of Lydia urinating in the Holy Water and then having the other two babies, going after Lyida, having dirty Holy Water sprinkled on their heads. I'm sure this wasn't the reason WHY Jer wanted her emmersed... but he once the thought of dirty water entered his mind, it didn't leave until AFTER the job was done and the water remained clean.

  3. Ahhh- the sharing gift of Christ. Love it! And hysterical!! She looked less than thrilled! Beautiful dress and you look pretty good yourself!

  4. Haha! The thought of Lydia peeing in the holy water is hysterical! I wonder if that ever happens...

  5. Hard to type Congrats when I am laughing so hard thinking about Lydia peeing in holy water.

  6. welcome to the faith, Lydia!
