This Labor Day weekend we celebrated a "labor of love" from God as we welcomed Wyatt into our faith community with his Baptism. Here are the highlights. No, there was no dunking in a river, but a beautiful fountain with our favorite friends and family there to support us and Wyatt. As the deacon reminded us during the homily, children are gifts from God, and we are so thankful that God loves us enough to "borrow" this little guy for a while. May he always see God's love in us as his parents.
Wyatt enjoyed hanging out on Saturday for his "pre-party" reception. Close friends from out of town came in, which made the weekend even more special. C. Cowboy woke up at 5:00 (technically 4:30 as he comforted Wyatt first) and put the pork in the smoker. It was deluxe! Perhaps food porn to come with the leftovers. We were too busy to take any food pics that day. In fact, I didn't take as many pictures as I wish I had all weekend. Hopefully some visitors will send theirs soon.
Wyatt finally met some of his parents' peeps. Hello Aunt Suzanne!
I don't have a picture of the back, but it quotes Matthew 3:16 and contains a dove and his Baptism date. It's truly a special way to remember this day and all it stands for.
He also spent some time with family. Yes, that's Mamie Jewels bouncing on the ever important exercise ball.
