The rest of Morgan's family arrived in town Friday afternoon. We had Easter lunch Saturday at my house- timed during nap time so I could actually sit and eat. The menu was asparagus rolls, smoked salmon and crackers to start, followed by ham, balsamic green beans and hot potato salad. Casting aside any illusions of modesty, I must say it was a damn fine lunch.
Sunday was just such a special Easter. Deeds was just perfect during his baptism. Dell Harper stood up there with us and didn't make a peep until the prayer when she stated (rather loudly) that Deeds is "All clean now mommy!".
Maybe I need to up my bath time skills if she thinks a Presbyterian style sprinkle of water gets you all clean.
Of course it's not like one person paid a whit of attention to my hair. Not with this darling buddy around.
Grandparents from both sides of his family holding him- happy baby.
The hundred year old gown Deeds is wearing was profusely spit up upon immediately before pictures. Ain't that always the way?
Pop-Pop with all his grandkids, with one notable exception. Miss Priss passed out an hour early for nap on our way home from the church. She could not be roused and missed the party completely.
After everyone headed home, I put up my feet and ignored chores. It was getting close to wake-up time, so I closed my eyes with the intention of taking a nap. Sure enough, I immediately heard "Mama?!? WAAHHH!!" coming from her room.
I deposited her in front of her Easter basket to avoid any post nap temper tantrum. She stared into space for a bit, then realized it was for her. Lots of crafts and opening up of stuff ensued. So no pictures exist to document all four of us dressed, accessorized and bathed. I need photographic documentation of this rare occurrence! I guess I can always watch the baptism online again, sigh. It's pretty amusing to see Morgan surreptitiously wipe the sweat form his brow during the prayers.
DH obviously got more from the baptism than I expected, as she chased Buddy around the yard hollering "COME HERE BUDDY!! I put water on your head!!"
