Carson's baptism

Carson was baptized at Second Presbyterian Church during the 8:15 am service this past Sunday. He was so good during the service, as was his sister. :) It was such a special event for so many reasons. First of all, mine and Andy's youth pastor when we were in middle school (when we knew each other but didn't like each other :) was able to come to the service and baptize Carson. Of course, when I was 12, never in a million years would I have thought that Lester Newsom would be baptizing mine and Andy Adair's kid 23 years later! CRAZY!!! But it was an emotional moment being able to share that with someone that has meant so much to both Andy and I.

Secondly, so many of our family members were able to come and witness the event and then go to breakfast with us after to celebrate. My mom, cousin, Andy's grandmother, mom, dad and stepmom, two brothers, sister and her boyfriend, and Lester and his whole family were with us. Notice the tie Andy is wearing~that tie was my dad's so even though he was not there physically we KNOW he was there in spirit! He was greatly missed on that day. Thank you Jesus for your blessings of family, friends, and blessed moments.
