Feature Friday!

Well our next feature would have to be the twins' baptism!

They were baptized on Feb 22,2009
It was a private baptism right after mass. The twins were wonderful despite the ceremony interfering with their usual daily routine. (they thrive on a set schedule and boy oh boy watch out when we divert from the set schedule! wink)

the boys in their baptismal outfits relaxing

Griffin getting baptized!

Oliver getting baptized!

I think that photos always tell more than the words on with the pictorial!

We ate ribs and all the yummy fixins that go along with them!
(as you can see only one baby is pictured here... the other was napping!)

Then we ate Cake! I made the cake and I thought it turned out OK. (seeing as I was rushed because what mom isn't running around like a crazy woman on big days like these?)
As you can see we were slowly losing poor Bus. He posed for the picture and he was done. Literally. His day had been crazy and napping not at the normal times, as while I would love to tell you all the day was utterly and totally fabulous- I would be lying. So for posterity reasons I will note that Bus pitched the biggest fit that day that any of my children ever had. It continued for 1. 1/2 hrs! Needless to say he and I were both exhausted by days end. From that day on I realized the importance of keeping as close to our daily schedule as possible no matter how hard it is! *Wink

Thanks for reading!

Sounds like you pulled off a wonderful day! Those big events are a tremendous amount of work for the us moms but well worth it for the memories. I think the cake looks amazing!

Congratulations boys! Wonderful pics.. these are the days you dream of.. plan endlessly.. and when they finally arrive.. you just can't wait for them to be over. Ni-night babies and just enjoy a moment of silence.

They're getting SO big! We're baptizing our girls this summer in Greece. All our kids will have been baptized in my husband's village in the church he attended. Pretty cool, huh?

Your cake looks awesome! I hear ya on being rushed, though. I don't have the patience to bake anymore. Maybe when the kiddos are a little older and stop hanging on my legs every time I'm in the kitchen!!

Congrats boys! Those types of celebrations are always so much work for the mommies :)

Your pictures are great. The boys are so adorable.
