A Baptism — {Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} Style

Here’s a pictorial recap of Jude’s Baptism on Sunday, April 22, 2012.  As a friend said to me, there really are no words to describe this moment. So, I’ll allow the pictures to do the storytelling. Thanks to our dear friend Sue for snapping these photos. And Father Kautzky, we are blessed to call you friend and Father. Thank you for celebrating Jude’s first sacrament with us!

    Oh how I love to see a beautiful baptismal gown on a boy. All three of my boys wore the same one and I will treasure it forever. Your son is so gorgeous!
