Sadie's Baptism

We baptized the little one a week ago. Father Wayne did the ceremony - he's the same priest who married us and baptized Aidan, but he has moved for his first pastoral appointment to West Columbia. We miss him. He likes to baptize babies by immersion, so for that part, she was nekkid as a jay bird, and not happy about it.

My sister Jennifer and her husband John are Sadie's godparents, but only Jennifer was able to come in from San Diego. Left John with their 4 kids for the weekend - how very brave of them all.

Sadie's hair and dress still smell like the holy chrism. Father Wayne is not shy when it come to the annointing! She looked beautiful in her little dress. Her shoes wouldn't stay on, but oh well.

Anyway, here are some pics:

    Okay, clearly not being Catholic leaves me at a disadvantage. What does holy chrism smell like? I can't even imagine. :)
