Sunday was baptism day for Carver. We had planned it for December but things didn’t work out with the weather and it was postponed. Sunday was a beautiful day. Carver hasn’t been feeling the best. All the yucky sickness stuff from childcare got him. He had a cough and cold but was a trooper.
Kalissa and Craig picked Kelli and Kayla as sponsors. Traditionally it’s a boy and girl but there’s no way they could pick between the sisters. Both adore him.
Here’s Carver mid yawn….
There he is with his momma.
We started pictures with no pacifier but he was tired and, as I said, not feeling the best so pacifier it was.
Kalissa had a beautiful baptism dress that my sister Judy made her. It is amazing. The debate was if Carver was going to wear it or not. The guys said no. No dress for their boy. That got me thinking that Hubby’s mom had given me Hubby’s baptism outfit. Carver ended up wearing it.
We had to add tights and turtle neck to the outfit set to keep him warm though.
Here’s a picture with the Friedman side of the family….grandpa and grandma and great grandpa and great grandpa.
Here’s one of Karl with the girls…Buck didn’t make it. Sadly he’s started to get sidelined by migraines. It’s been very hard on him and he’s bothered that he missed out because of it.
I love this picture….
I have to say though…this one is my favorite.
All of you who told me that being a grandparent was the best, you are exactly right!! It is.
After baptism we all gathered at Kalissa and Craig’s house. All of the women in Carver’s life brought food to share so it wasn’t too stressful for Kalissa and Craig. It’s so nice when everyone can pitch in and make things do-able.
I’m so happy Carver participated in his first sacrament today. It means the world to me that he was claimed by God as his own. We have a few years to work with him and teach him and in the blink of an eye, he’ll be ready to affirm his baptism. That too will be a happy day!
