Saturday.....Baby 'Reals' Christening

Emma Sage calls her baby cousin Gabriel 'Baby Real'! She just adores him.

On Saturday we celebrated Gabriel's Baptism with family and friends.

Here are are a few pictures from this special day. It was such a bitter-sweet time without our Mom. I had quite a few moments of tears, as it still does not seem real that our Mother is not here. I know she was smiling down from heaven at us all.

My sister Patti Ann and Gabriel....she is totally amazing and an nurse anywhere. I always had to sit to nurse. The gown Gabriel is wearing was made by my Mother, out of my sisters Mother-in-law [who passed away before their marraige] wedding gown. What a beautiful treasure this Christening Gown is.
