Harrison's Baptism

After much prayer and thought - Mike and I felt led to have Harrison baptized in the church where we were married in DeLand, FL ... since we now attend a non-denominational church where they don't do infant baptisms it was a decision we really had to pray over!  We both felt that this is what we should do... the event was moving spiritually and a great deal of fun since we had many dear friends and family come celebrate the event with us!

"Uncle" Paul, one of Mike's childhood friends and one of Harrison's Godfathers came down from Chattanooga... Here they are the day before the Baptism.

Bo was so cute with Harrison - he constantly wanted to hold and hug him!

The Godparents:
 T.R. Lewis (another highschool friend of Mike's) came from Atlanta
Paul Hoewischer
Shannon Wallace (one of Christina's best friends from childhood) came from Oregon.

Christina's parents had a wonderful brunch at their home after the baptism... below Nonnie Taylor made sure that Harrison did indeed have a silver spoon in his mouth and he even got to eat from his great great grandfather's silver porridger.... get used to it kid - your Nonnie has a penchant for these things!

His beautiful (and delicious) cake
