Sophia's Baptism

On Saturday, May 23, 2010 both my Family and the Church had much to celebrate for Sophia Anne was Baptized. Not only was Sophia baptized, but she entered the Church with four other babies. Here are some pictures from that great day!
This is a picture of Sophia in Nancy's arms before the Baptism began. It is to be noted that Sophia is wearing the same Baptismal Garment that Nancy wore at her Christening.
Here is a picture of the Baptismal Candle that was made for Sophia by Fr. Joe who not only baptized Sophia by married Nancy and Pete 3 years ago. This picture was taken in the Sophia's bedroom after the Baptism had occurred.
Sophia being baptized! You cannot tell in this picture, but Sophia was a crying during the Baptismal Ceremony...she was hungry!
