A Good Reason to Gather

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts this week, Sunday was a pretty happy day. Good friends of the Z's, the Radliffs, had three little souls baptized! Three! Attending the baptism of 3 people at one time is a first for me and certainly is unlikely to be beat since I knew all 3 pretty well also! Unless I have any friends expecting triplets in the future? Anybody?

While Kathleen and I are glad to be able to encourage spiritual growth for all 3 of the little stinkers... we were specifically asked to be godparents to the little guy you see above. That bald little booger is Davin... the bald one on the left. (I'm sorry. :) I just couldn't resist, Jay.) Here he is held by proud daddy Jason. Jason is a good friend of mine and a family man in pretty much every sense of the word. Good company for a new daddy like me to keep, eh?

Here is the whole family with (from the left) Patty, Davin, Lilly, Jason, & Kastan. Certainly a squirrely bunch when it comes to picture taking! I snapped about 9 pics and this is the closest I got to everyone looking forward and smiling! LOL! Man, I can't wait for those upcoming days...

One little guy seemed to be able to smile, or laugh, on demand. Kathleen mentioned that it was great that he was so willing to be tickled into photographic compliance.
Although, to be honest, smiles weren't too hard to come by that day... Here are two beautiful smiles that I am particularily fond of!


  1. LOVE it!!! Congrats to the whole family! :o) HOORAY for BAPTISMS!!!!!!!!! :o)

  2. Steph said it well. Hooray for them!

  3. Only a few days until I get to see those lovely beautiful smiling faces! (Specifically Kathleen & Avery) Aah! I want to hug them right Nooow!
