Gabe's baptism

Gabriel was baptized on July 5, 2009 at Good Shepherd. After the ceremony, we held a small reception at Art Source & Design, owned by Eric Schmidt, who was kind enough to host our family and friends for the celebration. After lunch, since we had so many family members in town, we decided to have cake and ice cream for Gillian since her birthday was coming up...

Here are my favorite pictures.....turn up your sound! (Google Video which is who I used to use as a hosting service no longer allows videos to be uploaded :( -- as such, I'm using Picasa, which forces the user to click and sends you to their page to watch it. I'm on the lookout for a new video uploading service that will allow me to directly embed video into the page -- send me any cool sites you might know of -- aside from the obvious youtube....everyone does that!!)

Happy 2nd Birthday Gillian!

We can hardly believe we've come to this day. We are reflecting on how truly bittersweet the day is. I guess the bitter, she's really not a baby anymore and she'll never be "1" again. And the sweet, we have found that every new stage is so much fun. Here are a few pictures from yesterday. We had a few friends over last night to help celebrate. The pinata was pretty fun!!

Michelle snapped this picture over the weekend at the 4th of July parade in Lenexa. I thought it was a pretty neat shot.

Gabriel's baptism was also this weekend. I'm about halfway done with a slideshow from the big day. Hard to believe but Gillian will be 2 this weekend too. We have LOTS and LOTS of things to put up here.

Here's the pic from the fourth...
