Beautiful Baptism

This weekend was a really good one. The weather was beautiful, a bit cold be great. Saturday was our regular Sat. I took Emma to dance and ran around with Yvonne getting stuff ready for Tatum’s party on Sunday. After dance class we ran around some more then went home. Yvonne came over with the kids on Sat. night to help me get everything set up for the morning and I must say before we went to bed the house looked great.

Sunday started out good with the exception of one over tired three year old. We finally made it to church, that is a good thing since it was Tatum’s day. The baptism itself was great I really like the church that we have been going to and I think that Pastor is great. Tatum must agree because when he picked her up she flashed him the biggest smile ever. I am so thankful that she is a happy baby. The photo is of Tatum and her godparents, Angie( Chris' sister) and Joe( brother in law).

After church everyone came to our house for lunch and a open house type thing. The food was great( thanks Yvonne) and everyone was having a good time. I do not think that the last people left until 8. I am always amazed how I am able to pack so many people in my house without it being over crowded whenever we have parties. I know one reason is our group of friends the kids way out number the adults. This is a good thing in most cases because I do not think that I saw Tatum all day. It is much easier to entertain without a baby on your hip.

Tatum actually does really well so far in big groups, I am surprised that it does no seem to bother her at all. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this does not change since I really do like to entertain. I am thinking about doing a super bowl party for her 1st birthday...LOL

Anyway it was a beautiful day ceremony and party for Tatum. Thank you so much to everyone who enjoyed the day with us. You are all such a special part of our lives. Those of you that could not make it thanks for all the kind wishes, we love you all too. :)

One more thing....Nothing from Oprah yet and we are still not sure what is going on with CHOP. I have 24 hours to canceled so I am hoping to know something today. How frustrating this has been...

Tatum has gotten so big! I love the bow! I am glad her Baptism Day was a truly special one.

I hope you figure out something with CHOP soon. How frustrating.

Tatum looks like an Angel with her godparents. I wish we could've been there, it sounds like fun!

It was a beautiful day. Emma was so much fun to watch playing with her friends. Tatum was too cute. She is getting strong. What a beautiful smile she had for everyone. I loved seeing and holding Molly too. Being with all three grand-daughters in one day is so special.
