Saturday , January 9, 2010

Last Saturday was a day of joy and sadness for our family as we witnessed the Baptism of our precious grandbabies - Annette Claire and Thomas Lee. The ceremony in Aiken at St. Mary's Help of Christians was very special. It was a wonderful occasion for our families to be together as we participated in the beginning of the twins' spiritual journey. The babies were "little angels" and extremely happy during their first visit to church. Not a peep did I hear!
Their godparents are David's sister, Julie, and Ashley's brother, Philip Jr. We enjoyed a wonderful little celebration at Ashley and David's after the Baptism.
Later that evening, we were so saddened to receive news of Philip's mother's passing. GaGa was devoted to her family and a wonderful role model for all of us. Philip says she could get her dander up, but she always seemed very calm and reserved to me. She will be missed sorely by all her family and friends.
Here's a snapshot of a quick kiss under the mistletoe last Christmas!
We are all very grateful for the wonderful support of family and friends during this sad time. We have been comforted by thoughtful cards, beautiful flowers, delicious food, and many words of comfort. Many thanks to everyone!
