Meet the Sullivans: Owen's Baptism & Celebration

Owen's Baptism & Celebration

Sunday was a very special day for our family, it was the day we baptized Owen, and the day he joined us in our Catholic faith.

Owen wore the same outfit Keith wore for his baptism 33 years ago. We were so happy it fit him!

Fr. John Ryan baptized Owen. He married us almost two years ago.

Receiving the oil cross on his head.

With his godparents Aunt KC and Uncle Kevin.

Owen (giving me his "boo boo lip) with his sweet cousins Megan and Natalie.

After the ceremony friends and family met back at Keith's mom's house for a BBQ.
I made this banner. It said God Bless Owen. If you're wondering how I managed to make perfect circles I used THIS neat thing.

This bunting usually hangs above his crib, but was used to dress up the mantle a bit.

With my niece Natalie's help we made some tissue paper pom poms to hang from the chandler in the living room and various other places. 

We kept the reception simple and laid back with a BBQ at home. 

I made a fruit salad and laid it out like a rainbow like we've all seen on Pinterest.

We ordered the strawberry shortcake cake from the Italian bakery nearby. 

Keith, his cousin Eric and brother Kevin.

Aunt Janet and my SIL Kelly.

Nephew Nick, MIL Barbara and niece Natalie.

My sister, Aunt Lesley and me.

Connie, Grandpa and me.

I just know that someday Owen is going to have a huge crush on Siena, our friends little daughter! Isn't she adorable?

I wasn't able to get any good pictures of him in his adorable sailor outfit, but this one of him looking giant with my mom is probably the best one we got!
