Baptism/Chrismation
« on: January 06, 2012, 09:30:42 PM »
I really didn't know where to put this but my daughter is being baptized tomorrow!

She and my wife will also be chrismated tomorrow as well! I'm really excited as can be gathered from the excessive amounts of exclamation points I am about to use!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!  ;D

In light of the joyous circumstances, God will probably forgive your overuse of exclamation points. Many years!

Ok, the baptism went great! My daughter was anxious to be baptized since we practiced in the bath tub the other night. I don't have any pictures yet, but plenty were taken - as soon as I get some I'll post them here and on FB.

I'm really glad I got to be home for this occasion, but unfortunately I have to go back to Kuwait in about a week. Thank you all for your well wishes and your prayers

 Thank you all! It was a joyous occasion. I can't believe she did so well. However, no more kids. We can't afford the receptions afterwards hehe.  ;D
