|Philip, me, Harold, and Harold's godparents--my brother, Andy, and my sister-in-law, Katie. We are so blessed that Harold has such wonderful godparents to help him along his way.|

|Harold didn't mind the water at all. In fact, he actually seemed to enjoy it!|
|We'll keep working on getting the kids to smile on command for the camera. Post-baptism pic with our pastor, Fr. Dan Kampschneider.|

|Get a load of these cookies! Aren't they adorable?!|
|Mmmmmm. Sandwiches. I just LOVE that picture of Harold that we took in the background. We had a bunch of prints made for family to take home.|

Celebrant: God the Father, through his Son, the Virgin Mary's child, has brought joy to all Christian mothers, as they see the hope of eternal life shine on their children. May he bless the mother of this child. She now thanks God for the gift of her child. May she be one with him in thanking him for ever in heaven, in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Celebrant: God is the giver of all life, human and divine. May he bless the father of this child. He and his wife will be the first teachers of their child in the ways of faith. May they be also the best of teachers, bearing witness to the faith by what they say and do, in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Keep pouring out the graces, God! Thank You for the gift of this precious baby boy.
Welcome to God's family, Harold Fulton Boucher! We love you!
