We invited our family to join us this past weekend to witness Rayne’s baptism!  I wasn’t sure if we would make it because Reese was sick with RSV in the days leading up to it and Rayne was coming down with another terrible cold which I was afraid could be RSV too, but so far we are in the clear.  We made it and it was wonderful!! Thank you to everyone who was able to join us! 

I was especially excited for this ceremony because the Priest who was going to perform Rayne’s baptism was the whole reason I fell in love with this particular church to begin with.  Msgr. Don Fischer retired almost 2 years ago right before Reese was born, so we missed having him do hers but he was the Priest who baptized Ryan and did the marriage ceremony for me and Erik.  He came back upon request to do the baptisms this particular day and it made the event so special! {picture overload, sorry}

Not sure if Ryan is giving an offering or taking one? Cute!

So so sweet! We need to baptize Emma but I didn't get baptized until I was old enough to know what it means. However, M's family thinks otherwise....
