Silas' baptism

 On Sunday, November 7th, we had Silas baptised in our church.

 He was such a good boy through the entire service. He was all smiles and giggles as he was passed around to his aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

 He didn't even cry with Father Reed poured the holy water on his head.

 The anointing of the oil was a little different. He didn't cry but he didn't like the fact that Bishop Burrill, who is hidden behind Father Reed, was trying to rub something on his forehead, so he actually had it done twice!

Licia, our female priest, congratulated us during the peace. She is a big Silas fan too!

 After communion and the rest of the service, we posed for pictures with Father Reed.

My sister Andi, and her husband John are Silas' God parents.  They were so happy to participate in Silas' special day!

Towards the end, Silas began to get a little tired of the pictures. Soon after this we went back to our house and had a yummy lunch provided by Silas' Honey and Bubby (grandparents). It was a great day!
