Last Sunday, we celebrated one of the most special days in Eli's life, his baptism.
Fred and I knew that we wanted Eli to be baptized from the moment we knew of his existence. For us, this was a public announcement of us committing to raising him in a Christian home.
Here are some pictures before and during Eli's baptism ceremony...

After church, we headed back to our house where we had a lunch prepared for our guests. We even had a special cake made and some cute little cookies for our guests to enjoy.
Melissa, for coming out to take these pictures to commemorate our special day.
