Isaac's Baptism Day

Isaac was baptized on Father's Day, June 15, 2014.  Oh Glorious day!  He wore the Nelli family baptism gown, first worn by his Uncle Rob over 50 years ago.  I can't say every Nelli was baptized in it... but a whole lot of them were!  We love the tradition but this gown is paper thin and I knew cousin Gia would be needing it the next month so I was extremely careful with it.  Isaac smiled at Deacon Ralph during the anointing with oil parts of the ceremony...  And here is the moment when Deacon Ralph baptized Isaac:

"I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit!"

And let the people say, "Amen!"

Lexi agreed to be Isaac's Godmother and she is just perfect for him.  We are so proud of her finishing up nursing school at USC and excited for her future!

And some family pics...

So glad to have Nana and Grandpa here for this blessed day.  We were also joined by Stan, Peg, Travis, Emma, and cousins Jed and Madison.  Isaac did great!
