Keaton's Baptism

Keaton Charles von Buchler, our Godson, was baptized at St. Barnabas on April 26, 2008. Here he is being sprinkled with holy water by Father Jim. Keaton, the poor thing, just screamed the entire time until Father Jim while singing, raised Keaton up to present him to the church. At that time, Keaton must have been so calmed by Father Jim's singing, that he stopped screaming for a few short seconds. What a moving experience! Of course, all eyes were filled with tears.

Below, Keira and Carter are completely intrigued by the Baptismal Font just prior to the service....they act as if they don't recall their own shared baptism just one year ago. Time flies!

Look how cute they are all dressed up!!

Great pictures! I agree with you on not a dry eye when father lifted Keaton up. It was very moving. It is hard to believe that just 1 year ago, Keira and Carter were being baptized. They look so cute together.
