Ahhh – just sat down after another wonderful family day, which started with a Sugar-Free Vanilla Latte and a Chocolate Doughnut Hole at church because…
Finn was baptized today! (And yes, the church my brother and sister-in-law goes to has a Starbucks-esque coffee bar in it!)
The ceremony was beautiful and Finn was the perfect little baptizee. He didn’t cry a bit – in fact, he looooves having water poured over his head so he enjoyed every moment!
The whole family was there, dressed in our Sunday best.
Afterwards we headed over to my brother and sister-in-law’s home for celebratory brunch! There was a whole buffet of sweet treats (where you know I headed first) which included Homemade Sticky Buns,
Cherry Cobbler Bars,
and Chocolate Blondies (omg!) All the sweets were homemade by my sister-in-law’s Mother and Grandmother – they were the best part of the brunch, as you can imagine!
Ok – the rest of brunch was preeeety darn good too! It was catered and included the fluffiest, creamiest scrambled eggs I’ve ever tasted (I want to know how they made them…seriously, HOW??) and some perfectly cooked hash browns.
Rounded out with some fresh fruit, a slice of bacon and a sticky bun – I am a stuffed lady right now.
After brunch, we spent some quality time together.
And of course, fawned over the star of the day – Finn!
Ben and I were talking, and we are seriously scared for our future babies… Finn.is.ADORABLE! His cousins will have some stiff competition!!
He is such a good baby and let everyone hold, ooh and ahh over him.
Family time = the best time. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that I live so close and am able to not miss a thing!
Well my Grandma and Aunt are off to the airport to fly home to Ohio and Ben and I are spending the remainder of our Sunday winding down and relaxing. It’s been a crazy weekend – I can’t believe tomorrow’s already Monday!
Actually, I’m kind of glad a fresh, new week is starting tomorrow. I really slacked off on working out last week and indulged waaay to much this weekend. Right now I have that puffy, “gross” feeling, if you will. The good news is that a new week = new choices = moving forward. To tomorrow!
Did you grow up near your extended family? Aunts, uncles, cousins or Grandparents?
