It's been a while...

It's been a while, to say the least. I made a New Year's resolution to post at least once everyday this year, even if it's just a photo. I know, I know, I already missed two days, but that will lead me into the following year. As you probably already know, a lot has been going on this year. I had Connor, I graduated law school and took the bar exam (which I did not pass), Ry and I had our wedding ceremony and joined the church, and I've been here at home with the wee man. Which has, at times, been trying, but wonderful. And I have been knitting, I'll show you in another post.

Today Connor was baptized in the Methodist Church. He wore Ryan's baptism outfit and a bonnet that my mom made for him yesterday. It was a beautiful ceremony, our pastor has known Connor since he was four-ish months old, and Connor was so calm and at ease with him. He didn't even cry when our Pastor put the water to his head, although Ryan did. He was then blessed and walked around and show to the congregation. Then we were welcomed as new members of the church. It was a very special day for all of us. Ry's parents and sister couldn't make it because of inclement weather, and they were missed. However, because they couldn't make it we decided to share the baptism cake I made for him with the congregation and that was so special to me and to some of our new friends there. All in all it was a lovely day.

What a beautiful alter and church. And Connor's gotten so big! Even though I already know you won't post every day, it'll be great to see more pics of the little guy. :)
And no, I'm not joining facebook.
