Whew, what a season! Did it fly by for everyone else? We had so much fun celebrating with family. It was so much fun having Lucas with us this year. He of course had absolutely no clue whatsoever what was going on, but everyone had a great time making a big fuss over him.

We started our celebrating on Christmas Eve with breakfast at my parents' house. Luke "opened" his presents and was of course spoiled by GG, Pop, and Uncle John. We then headed to Bessemer to my grandparents where we dined on Dreamland ribs - yummm! It was so good to spend time with all the aunts, uncles, and cousins. After opening presents we then drove to Roebuck to Our Lady of Lourdes to go to mass with Eric's family and then to Trussville to Eric's grandparents' house. We had too much fun playing games and opening presents with everyone. Eric's cousin also has a son just a couple of months older than Lucas. Next Christmas is going to be so much fun with Jackson, Langdon, Camden, Lucas, and Baby Burdette who will be born next year.

Christmas day we ate breakfast and celebrated at our house just the three of us. We then drove to Trussville for lunch at Eric's parents' house to celebrate.

Luke's Baptism

Luke was baptised on November 15, 2009. It was such a special day! It is important to Eric and I that we raise Lucas according to God's will and that we be examples of His amazing love and grace. We are so humbled that God allowed us the be the ones to raise Lucas. God's grace is so abundant!

He was baptised at Prince of Peace Catholic church in Hoover, AL by Fr. Henry McDade. He is a wonderful priest and made the ceremony so special. There was also a baby girl being baptised as well. She was too cute. Luke did well...although the pacifier was kept very close by just in case!

Luke's godmother is Eric's sister Melissa and his godfather is my brother John. They are so wonderful and love Lucas so much! Of course Eric's and my parents were there as well as Eric's grandparents (Mamaw and Papaw), my grandparents (Mimi George, Meme Jack, and Grandaddy Jack), Eric sisters Melissa, her husband Keith, and their children Jackson and Langdon, Julie and her daugther Hannah (who is such a great big cousin - she loves to hold Lucas). My brother and his girlfriend, Sarah, were there as well. We also had several aunts and uncles and other cousins (Uncle Jim, Aunt Berneice, Mandy, Uncle Bob, Aunt Bobbie). Everyone came over to our house for lunch following the baptism. It was so nice to spend time with everyone and to celebrate!
