Jackson's Christening

Sunday was Jackson's christening. I know I'm terrible for waiting so long, but I'm a procrastinator, what can I say? It was storming during the service, but it was so odd because every time the priest would say Jackson's name or touch him it would thunder really loudly. We were not the only one's who noticed it. The priest made a comment about it and all the other families noticed it as well. It was quite odd and kind of freaky. Anyway, it was still a good day and Jackson didn't cry at all, and even though he's quite the chunky monkey he still fit into the family christening gown. All the older kids had a good laugh at Jackson's expense though, and the boys were convinced Jackson was wearing a dress. It was kind of funny how they all reacted.
Here are a couple pictures my sister-in-law took.


  1. Joe got comments for wearing a "dress" too. but it was thea family gown. Deacon Paul also baptized the twins.

  2. Our's is also a family gown and everyone has worn it at their christening since it was made in 1948.
