Jacinta joined the ranks of the baptized
yesterday on Saturday. I am a little behind on my blogging. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.
She looked pretty cute in her little white outfit.
I’m not sure what they were looking at, but it must have been…inspiring.
Lined up and ready to go.
Already glowing, and not even baptized yet!
The sign of the Cross.
Veronica wanted to do it, too. She didn’t get the whole thumb thing though.
Donovan also got a turn.
Listening to the “homily”. I wonder if this is before or after the “Lady Pope” joke. If our faces are a guide…I’d say after.
She didn’t care for the oil.
She didn’t care for the water, either.
Ahhh, that’s better. “My soul is shiny and new! Oh, and I am hungry!”
More oil. Not like her hair needs it.
Veronica needed some help sitting still. And staying out of the fountain.
Way to keep the
flame alive candle lit, Steve!
Michael and Donovan keeping Clint company. Good thing they were there to make sure he didn’t misbehave.
Cleaning one’s soul of original sin is very exhausting.
Her soul is so shiny, it shows right through!
He looks excited. Maybe Jacinta’s sparkly soul was infectious. Or maybe he was just glad it was over.
“I was crying, but I am taking a break now.”
Daddy and Mommy love their brownie bit.
Her white garment is about to fly away with her.
Uncle Steve and Aunt Becky, the Godparents.
“Awww Dad, why are you doing this to me?”
Veronica is not sure what to make of this.
I guess she isn’t used to not being the center of attention.
A family picture with Omi, Opa, Papae and Mamae.
Felicity was excited about the whole thing.
She looks asleep, but she was really trying her darnedest to locate sustenance.
The glow of shiny, new soul is irresistible.
Thanks to Omi for making the beautiful cake!
Happy Grace Day, Jacinta Marie!
