Avery's Baptism

Sunday was a very special day for us - Avery was baptized and welcomed into the Catholic faith. One of my most favorite parts of the day was being surrounded by all of our family and friends that love her so much. I am getting choked up just thinking about it. Reflecting on the weekend and looking at all of our pictures reminds how truly lucky we are to have the people we do in our lives. We are so rich in love and support.

Anyways, Avery's baptism happened to be on Memorial Day weekend. It worked out great because it gave Greg's family an extra day to make the trip back to Tulsa. On Saturday, my mom and sister came up to help Greg & I with cleaning and preparing the house for guests.  Saturday night, part of the Haus crew got in to town and Greg's youngest brother, Brad, got to meet Avery for the first time!

You look like my daddy and sound like my daddy...but I don't think you are my daddy?!

Sunday everyone was running around like a chicken with their head cut off getting ready for the baptism and the party at our place. Greg, Brad and I were up at the butt-crack of dawn setting everything up. The Richter's and the second half of the Haus crew made it to Omaha around 11:00 so we could go to noon mass together. Right after mass was Avery's baptism. There were 4 babies total that were baptized. 

First project of the day on Sunday: getting rid of the small hornet's nest above the door...
Being baptized!

Once the hustle and bustle of the day was over, it was time to go back to our house, have some lunch & unwind the Greg & Libby way: yard games and drinks!


The grandparents stepped in to show us how it's done!

HAHA Avery's face is silly
