Blessings for Bee

We had Jack (a.k.a. "bee") baptized on Sunday. Here's a picture of the fam. On the left are Jack's godparents - my Mom's cousin (does that make her my second cousin?) Debbie and her husband Tod, and then Darrin and I are on the right and the babes are in arms. ;o)

It was a hot and sticky day, and our church is having some financial issues so the a/c was cut off. It was soooo sticky in church. They are also having blended services in the summer, so it was half traditional and half contemporary. The baptismal song was Creed's "With Arms Wide Open", and video clips from Mean Girls and RV were shown during the sermon. Yeah. Not sure I'm feelin' all of that, but oh well. Tod had to restrain himself from breaking into song while Creed was playing. It was pretty funny, but you probably had to be there. :o) After the baptism, we went to a local restaurant for brunch and chit chat. We didn't get too many pictures of the baptism because of the heat... and those we did get were taken by a kid who was standing around near us. Yeah - bad idea. Of the five he took, only two turned out. This is the "good" one (you can see how fuzzy it is). Hopefully we can get some copies from Debbie and Tod, or Henry's godparents who were also present. And then we had to stand off to the side for the photos because the beautiful backdrop of the alter was blocked by the big screen they had set up to show the movie clips. *grumble*

Ok, it's late, and I'm rambling aimlessly. I'm off to bed now. This coming weekend is our annual family reunion, so stay tuned for more pics from that. It's being held on the family farm this year for the first time, so it should be interesting!
