Today has been a big day for our family-- Libi was baptized into the Episcopal Church. The whole family gathered at 10:30 this morning at St. Nicholas Church in Encino for the event. Fr. Jim Maronde the priest who married Ron and I, who I have known since I was six performed the ceremony. It was a brief service, but a really nice one. Bonnie and Jim Phillips were our first choice for godparents and we are blessed that they agreed to take the job!
After the brief ceremony, we all drove out to the house for the party. We had a lovely spread of food-- sandwiches, salads, chips, fruit and veggies as well as a yummy cake. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves eating, chatting, and passing Libi around. Neither Daddy or I got to hold Miss Libs until everyone left at about 4:30.
The next stop of the day was a trip to Nana and Pop's house for dinner with Jammy Grammy and Grampy. It was nice to have a quiet dinner with all of them, but again Daddy and I didn't get to hold Libi due to all the grandparents and great-grandparents. When we returned home after 8 we all hit the hay-- it was a very full, but a wonderful day!
