Tobias' Christening


 There are not enough words to describe what a special day this was for our family. 

We invited family and many new friends to share this day with us, unfortunately, like with Thomas' Christening, we apparently picked a bad day for almost all our guests.  But, we were loved on by our church family and Grandma and Grandpa and it was more than enough to make this day unforgettable.




 
 
I'll just share the day in pictures, because they are amazing. Nikki has become my go-to photographer for all church events and she does a fantastic job, especially since we keep the flash off so as to not blind Pastor Jay!

And, afterwards, I got her on my side so we could do some Pinterest inspiration too ;)




I spent weeks making all pieces of Tobias' Christening outfit, and days cooking food, and all of the hours were well worth it.  The reception afterwards started off rocky (I couldn't set up), but came out wonderful, like most things in our lives.


We thank everyone who found time to share this day with us and watch as our baby boy was baptized into the Methodist church and the Christian faith, and as we parents took the oath to raise him as God would have us raise him up.
