The Bug gets Sprinkled

Where has the week gone??? I did not realize it had been so long since I had last posted! This week has FLOWN by!! We have had a busy few days at the Hamilton Depot....last weekend the Bug was Christened!!! In our ever twisted, windy, long winded road to find OUR church, the one thing that we deeply regret is that it took us so long to baptize Georgia. We did not want to baptize her somewhere unless we knew we would raise here there. No offense to anyone else, but I am opposed to a Drive-Thru Christening. And by that I just mean, christening them just to get it done, even if you do not plan on attending that church. I wanted Georgia to grow up saying this is where I was baptized, this is where I was raised. I know that circumstances might someday move us from this church, but you get what I mean.....
All in all, aside from the chaos of prepping my house all week, fighting off a FOUR DAY long migraine marathon, and then subsequently fighting off strep/tonsillitis, the day went out without a hitch!!! The service was beautiful, we were surrounded by our friends and family who love us and who more importantly, love Georgia. And let me tell you....this little girl was the Belle of the Ball. Getting ready to go up!!!!!
Checking out the scenery....hello everybody!!!

She loves men!! Watch out Big Daddy! You're going to have your hands full! She just loved Pastor Ken holding her!!!

He took her around the church to "meet" the congregation....she had been practicing her pageant wave. Bless.

The GRAND Godparents!!!

All of us.

By this time she was blowing raspberries. Annnnnd scene.
I wish I had more pictures of everyone that was there, but you know mass chaos trying to get everything done and keep her happy at the same time. I also didn't get her in her full Christening garb so I will have to dress her back up one day this week and retake the pictures.

Afterwards we had a brunch at our home and I have to say it turned out fabulous!!!!
Here was the menu:
  • Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar
  • Beef Tenderloin
  • Bleu Cheese Biscuits
  • Blanched Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce
  • Fresh Fruit Salad
  • Baby Spinach with Strawberries, Feta and Pecans with Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Homemade Cheese Straws (what CAN'T my mama do?!?!?!?)
  • Key Lime Tarts
  • Vanilla Pound Cake with Fresh LOCAL Strawberries and Blueberries that the Bug picked herself!!!!
Everything was divine and the entire event was so very special to us!!! We are so incredibly blessed with our beautiful, healthy baby girl and every day I count my blessings. I know we have many other trials and tribulations but looking at her just puts everything into perspective. Nothing else matters when you have a beautiful, happy, healthy family! Raymond and I love you all!!! Thank you for making Georgia's day so very special!!!

  3. awww, sweet !

    Thank you and have a lovely weekend

  4. Oh, how wonderful! Congratulations! At my church, I love the christenings where the little ones are old enough to tell that something special is going on. They are just so much fun to watch as they take it in.

  5. Congrats on such a special day! I feel the same way about christening/baptizing at a meaningful place - we did our little guy's baptism at the church my husband grew up in because we know we'll eventually be moving from where we are now!

    And oh my goodness that menu sounds DELISH - blue cheese biscuits oh dear!!!!! :)


what are you observing these days????
