A few weekends ago was special one for us. We gathered up all of the family Saturday night, and our little guy was baptized. It was a busy weekend, but a good one. Saturday morning we were up bright and early. We headed over to my mom’s house, and got going on food prep. Our goal was have everything ready to eat when we walked in the door after the baptism. I got going on my crock-pot barbeque chicken, we made coleslaw (for the sandwiches!), cheesy hashbrowns (which I could literally eat every day of the year, they are my favorite), and I tried my hand at some chocolate dipped strawberries. We had strawberries made for my baby shower this summer, but if we all recall a cute little guy showed up early, and strawberries don’t keep for a week like we needed for the ‘rescheduled’ shower. After getting all of the food prepped, we ran into town to pick up the cake. I absolutely LOVE Cold Spring Bakery, everything they make is so good, and their prices are super reasonable. They made our wedding cake last year, and even customized a pineapple flavor for us. To. Die. For. We stayed simple this time with almond cake and buttercream frosting.

The baptism went so well. We opted to do it after the service on Saturday night. No crowds for us, that isn’t good for our anti-social personalities. Jackson was wide awake the whole church service and didn’t make a peep. Already mastering his manners. He was great during the baptism as well. His eyes got pretty wide when water was poured on his head, but again, not a peep.
My little man is so well behaved. *knock on wood*. Let me rephrase: he is well behaved when he is around everyone else. He loves to refuse to sleep and fuss when it’s just mom and dad.
Proud mom and dad, and wide eyed baby.

After the baptism, we headed back to my parents for dinner. As per usual, we had WAYYY too much food, and everyone left with loads of leftovers.We are so blessed to have the family that we do, the lives that we live, and the perfect child that has made our little family so much more complete. To see him become a member of the Lord’s family, was so special. He is a very loved little boy, and we are very lucky.
Mr. Man’s display. Is he cute, or is he cute?
