Aidan's Baptism

This past Sunday Aidan was baptised in our church in Monkton. We love this church, the village and all the friends we made there there so it seemed fitting that we should have Aidan baptised there just like Lilly. Our good friend Theresa performed the ceremony as one of her last official duties as minister there before she starts a new position so it was doubly special. It was also great to see all our neighbours and see all our friends. You really do know how special a place is when you can go away for a while and when you come back it's like you never left.

Family made it out as well including Grandmas, Grampas, Great Aunts and Uncles. Then everyone headed back to our house (a bit if a drive so thank all of you for doing it!) for a meal prepared by Grandma. Lilly had a great time trying out all the laps, eating grapes, eating crackers, and generally loving all the attention. Aidan is still having "strange" issues and will cry when there is too much excitement and he is away from Mommy or Daddy. He's still little so he's allowed ;)

There were to be 3 baby boys baptised that day. Unfortunately, one little guy came down with chicken pox so he had to stay home. The amazing thing is that ALL the boys were named Aidan! I could not believe it! I guess we werent as original as we thought! The only thing our Aidan did different was to have only one middle name. What a neat day.

Thank you Theresa, all our friends in Monkton and our family for making it a special day.

Hi everyone - it was a real pleasure baptizing Aidan! It is truly my favourite part of my job -reminding all of us that we are loved unconditionally and always by God from the moment we are born! Plus I get to hold babies! Hope all is well there.
