Baptizing our Sweet Baby Annalee

On Saturday, September twenty-sixth we celebrated our baby girls Christening! It was a rainy day outside, but full of love, laughter, and lots of grace inside. Father Joeseph DeAurora preceded and about twenty-five of our closest Lexington friends and family gathered at St. Patrick Catholic Church to welcome our sweet baby girl into the catholic faith. My parents and middle brother, Roberto (also the godfather) both flew up for the occasion, God-momma Meg, her husband Matt and her sweet momma Josie drove over for the day as well.

Annalee's christening gown was worn by my sweet momma in 1951, her god-pappa in 1982, and me in 1984. It was a beautiful gown handmade in the Philippines. Auntie Karen sent her a beautiful sterling silver crucifix from Mexico that we pinned to her gown, and the ladies at church made a beautiful cross bib that she wore during the ceremony.

Following her baptism, we celebrated with a luncheon at Mulberry Hill. CHEFS catering pulled out a delicious spread for us, and Sweet Treats made the most delicious cake.

Annalee was showered with lots of gifts, love and prayers for a beautiful life ahead. Thanks so much to everyone who was able to be there to celebrate with us, and all of you sending your well-wishes form near and far!
