Why? Jeffrey’s Baptism!

Sunday was a big day as we celebrated Jeffrey’s baptism. The ceremony was held at St. John Vianney by the same priest who performed Matthew’s and my marriage ceremony.

We were so lucky to have both sides of our family able to attend this special day.

Jeffrey did really well throughout the whole ceremony and didn’t cry one bit when the water was poured over his head! All the practicing in the bath paid off!

Our wonderful godparents (all six of ’em!) were all in attendance and we’re so grateful for their already strong presence in Jeffrey’s life!

After the ceremony, we headed to Match Works Tavern for Jeffrey’s first official party. We had a room off their patio and the staff made it a lovely afternoon for all of us. We enjoyed strawberry spinach salad, grilled veggies, cheese, hummus, and chicken salad croissants.

We also had a delicious white and chocolate layer cake with chocolate mousse filling from Cakes to You. And my Mom added to the sweetness with personalized M&M’s as party favors!
