Charlie's Christening

Last Sunday we drove up to Jacksonville for Charlie's Christening. It was kind of fun getting the whole family dressed up.
DSC00026 See the dress Charlie is wearing? It's the same dress Jennifer wore for her christening 30 yrs ago. And do you see how tall Nate is getting?
Charlie was very well behaved during the whole service DSC00040 and with the exception of some very loud hiccups (which made everyone chuckle) she barely made a peep. My favorite part of the service was when the pastor walked Charlie through the church with the congregation singing "Jesus Loves Me." I couldn't sing cause I was really choked up. It was a really nice ceremony and I can see why J&J really like this church. Doesn't hurt that the pastor looks a little like George Clooney either.

Afterwards we all (Me, Rich, the kids, J/J&C, Jen's dad and his family, Jeremy's family and a couple of their friends all went to Buffalo's to a luncheon to celebrate. Charlie got some nice gifts. Grampy and I got her an infant's bible with her name engraved on it and the kids got her a very pretty bracelet with a cross on it. I didn't remember to take a picture of either!

I personally, just can't get enough of this child. DSC00062

Afterwards we went back to J&J's for mimosas and to just hang out for a bit before heading home. All in all, a very nice day!
