Baptism

On Sunday, May 19, Semmes was Baptized into the Christian faith.  It was on Pentecost and was a very festive and beautiful ceremony.  My parents and Semmes came into town.  We missed Madeline and Greg and McConnell.  Especially McConnell, since he is one of Semmes' Godparents!!


All of the Schneiders came for the big event!  Jessica and Austin are Semmes' other Godparents.


Godparents in church!!  This was the only picture I got in church.


It was also my parents' 35th wedding anniversary!!  So we got them a surprise cake to celebrate!




We got Semmes the exact same Christianing petit fours we got Cooper.  Though Cooper's initials were a little bit darker blue.




Semmes' gown was worn by my grandfather, Uncle Bill, cousin Oliver, McConnell, and now Semmes.  Four generations!!  Cooper wore the gown that Brad wore when he was Baptized.









The little booties were hand crocheted by my grandmother; aren't they pretty!?



Overall, it was a great weekend.  We had bbq and beer at the house afterwards and everyone had a great time.  My two children, of course, slept through the party.  But I don't really blame them.  It was a long, eventful weekend.  Austin, Jessica, Charlotte, and Ethan stayed at the house, so there were four adults and four children for the weekend.  I discovered my house is not big enough for that many people.  We went to the Greek Food Festival Saturday afternoon.  We had a babysitter so the adults could go to dinner Saturday evening (my parents had dinner on their own for their anniversay; so romantic!).  Then Sunday was just nonstop.  It was a fun weekend, but I'm kinda glad it's over and that Semmes is "marked as Christ's own forever!"
