Marleys Baptism

Saturday we celebrated Marleys baptism.  It was sort of a last minute thing.  I was previously a member of the Lutheran church in Avoca.  This is also where Lily was baptised.  Since we have lived in Bellevue nearly 3 years I figured it would be best to transfer my membership to a church near our home.  Thankfully there is a church just blocks from our home.  So a couple of weeks ago we joined the church and scheduled Marleys baptism. 

It was sort of an informal private ceremony with family.  Marley has 2 sets of godparents as does Lily.  We chose my sister and Ed and Brians sister Teresa and her boyfriend Kurt as her sponsors.  The blessing only lasted a few minutes then we were able to take some pictures.  After pictures we headed to our house for a nice dinner.

Marley looks an awful lot like Lily in this picture!

Cashman is a baby hog!  He was so worried about where she was and just kept kissing her!
