~Leo's Baptism~

We had Leo's baptism last weekend. It was a nice family event to celebrate this little man. 

I just did a few decorations- tissue poufs and a banner, plus some decorative napkins and straws. Nice and simple! 

I also made the cupcakes. So delicious!! I just used a vanilla recipe from a cupcake recipe book I have, with a decadent buttercream icing. I love them and apparently so did everyone else since there were only a few left.

Leo was so well-behaved and happy at the church. He was content to be passed around during Mass. 

The little girls were a little harder to occupy and keep quiet but I think they did a good job considering they are two! They had a few Auntie and Uncles to keep them entertained. 

Waiting for the Baptism to start- parents and Godparents

Cousin L was getting tired of being quiet and sitting still!

Listening to the Priest explain Baptism

Being Blessed

Being Anointed

Baptism- Audrey insisted on being involved as well

He didn't even make a sound when the Priest poured half the pitcher of water on his head!
