Ethan's Baptism

Ethan was baptised January 8th. It was a really special day and we had lots of family travel far to support him. Uncle Caleb baptised him and Uncle David confirmed him. Frank was able to come and it meant a lot to Ethan to have him there. Abby was upset about something or other though - so we never did get a picture of Frank with all five kids

I was lucky enough to get all 5 kids in my shot - you can tell how happy Abby is to have to take pictures though.

It really is hard to get a good picture of all 5 kids at once - maybe it will get easier as they get older??? Here is one of just Ethan and I.

Frank's parents also made the drive - as did some cousins (Chloe, Stella, Ava and Connor - I don't know why I didn't get pictures of them). Here is Ethan with Grandma and Grandpa Gilmore.

Michael and Elsa came as well - they made like three trips down to Cedar in 3-4 weeks - and did I mention that Elsa is 8 months pregnant - so sitting in the car for that much time is not fun. Thanks for coming though. Here are all my brothers with Ethan.

Ethan is a great kid - I am lucky to be his mom - I hope he will always remember how he felt today. He told me after that he knew his decision to be baptised was right because he felt so happy.
