Nickolas James baptized!

Our pastor, Fr. Dale, baptized Nickolas on Sunday, January 25th at 11:30 am Mass. Nickolas was ready to be baptized because when Fr. Dale invited family and friends to the Baptismal font, he shouted excitedly "I get baptized!" Since Fr. Dale had his microphone turned on, the whole congregation heard what Nickolas had to say.

Nickolas couldn't wait to blow out his Baptismal candle.

Nickolas's godparents were Amanda's Uncle John and our friend, Fr. Bob DeLand. (Ellen stood as proxy for Fr. Bob who was unable to attend Mass due to commitments at his own parish, but he was able to join us for lunch afterwards.)

We were all very excited and happy!

Nickolas finally "crashed and burned" when he couldn't take apart the blocks on the cross he received from Fr. Bob. But it was a wonderful celebration!
