Sunday the 17th we had Zach baptised into the Catholic church at the church near our house, St. Vincent de Paul. He wore the gown both my sister and I wore when we were christened in the Episcopalian church and his Nike shocks tennis shoes to “butch” up the gown. The Deacon blessed Zach with water and oil and I can not seem to get that oil smell off of him – after two bathes he still smells like a mixture of incense and spices.
Both Godparents Chris and Alison did a wonderful job of standing up for him and promised to do so from now on. Chris already started by letting Zach and I out of the car when Alex locked us in. Thank Heavens for Godparents.
