Felicity's Baptism

We were so blessed to have the priest that married us, drive in to baptize Felicity. He is such an amazing example of Christ's love. During the ceremony, he had everyone in attendance say how they were going to support Felicity's faith life. Our friends and family said the most beautiful and inspirational things, bringing Kenneth and I to tears. What an amazing day! 

And people were bringing children to him that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it." Then he embraced them and blessed them, placing his hands on them.          Mark 10:13-16
 The bonnet she wore was the same one I wore when I was baptized.
Felicity loves her cousins.
 The two different oils used were the oil of catechumens (representing protection and healing from sin) and the oil of chrism (representing the presence of the Holy Spirit)
 Father Steven asked for 4 volunteers to read Scripture. My mom, Kenneth's mom, Jessica, and Gina all did a wonderful job!



 Nathan and Sarah Beth are going to be amazing Godparents :)

 We had everyone over at our house afterward for brunch.

She was exhausted after a long blessed day!
