Last Sunday was a glorious day, so much excitement at the church for our family because Jayden was getting baptized. The baptism started just after normal nap time and little J was so tired but he did so wonderfully.
The priest blessed him with more oil than you can imagine. His thick hair was greasy for 2 days and the smell of the oil still lingers to this day! His daddy says he smells like church!
After the baptism, we headed to the clubhouse that we rented for a little celebration. Unlike with Jordan’s Baptism party, we didn’t have it catered so it was a little bit more stressful preparing but it all turned out great! I finally got to perfect the spiral lollipop cookie (yes, it’s a sparkly cookie!) that I’ve been practicing to make for a few weekends before Jayden’s Baptism party.
I also made a 6-inch bow cake that is similar to what we had for Jordan’s Baptism party.
It really feels good knowing that we have laid the religious foundation for our boys. I know that we all have free will and I don t know where their lives will take them or the decisions that they will make but I will know they will live a good life due to that one binding truth that God will lead their lives.
