Stella's christening

This was a special weekend for Stella . She was  christened yesterday afternoon and there was a big party afterwards to celebrate the fact . She looked just adorable in her dress , which her mom had also worn for her own baptism , and the little hat that I'd crocheted for her .The church was filled with  family and friends  but she's such calm and happy baby that not even all the noise and someone pouring water on her head made her cry .  Jessey could hardly wait for the whole thing to be over  so that he could go play with his cousins and all of his friends . This actually was the only photo that I  managed to get of him all day . He wasn't still for a moment .

The party was originally going to be held outdoors at Chantals' parents home , but the torrential rains and heavy winds that blew in with the remnants of Irene put paid to that . The party was moved inside . We were a little cramped but that didn't matter . There was lots of food , it was a happy occasion , so not even the weather could dampen our spirits . But then I wasn't one of these guys who had to be outside to  barbecue the supper .



I was warm and dry inside getting hugs and kisses from this little sweetie ....


and this handsome fella !
