Catelin was baptized at OLA last Sunday, October 7th. It was a very special/busy/fun weekend for us. As you know, Ty turned two on Friday and his birthday party was Saturday. Sunday morning, I ran the Atlanta half marathon (which was a great race with perfect weather!); then, we went to the 11:30 mass with Catelin’s baptism following. My whole family was in town for the weekend and everyone on Steve’s side was there except for Andrew and Leah. Ms. Lisa even came to join in the festivities!

It has been increasingly difficult to take all of the kids to mass these days (MJ actually ran up onto the alter during communion one Sunday a few months ago- NOT. EVEN. KIDDING.) So, we brave it about once a month with the whole family and Steve and I go to separate masses the other weekends. As you can see from the pictures below- this one was no different. :)
Catelin’s baptism was wonderful – she didn’t even cry as the Deacon poured the water over her head! Here are a few pictures from the ceremony:

After the Baptism, everyone came over to our house for a cookout. It was a gorgeous afternoon and the kids had a ball playing outside. Catelin was pooped after a fun-filled morning and took a long afternoon nap.

The weekend was made even more special when Ann and Jeff announced that they are expecting their first child in April! We couldn’t be happier for them…and MJ, Ty, and Catelin can’t wait to meet their cousin!
