woody's big day

Sunday, we made the trip to Jackson for sweet Woody's baptism.
We joined Woody and the rest of the family at their church for the baptism
and lunch afterward at the Craig's.
Although it is mid-February, the weather was absolutely perfect.
It felt like spring which gave us the perfect day to enjoy the sun porch.
Woody's happy family
Don't you just love Christening gowns?
The table was beautiful with sweet baby silver.
Here is my seat right in front of this cute silver piggy bank.
Carly with her cousins - JC and sweet baby Woody.
Carly couldn't get enough.
How perfectly southern.....antique dining room table set with fine china,
heirloom silver, beautiful linens, monogrammed silver goblets, and floral center piece of hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, and one mystery flower that is still unidentified.
.
Well, I've never been to lunch following a baby christening
anywhere but in the South, so I don't have anything to compare it to.
.
Don't you just love hydrangeas?
Nonna with her 3 grandbabies.
I liked this one of her looking down at them.
Nonna with sweet Woody.
Yum! The cake was fabulous-
almond with cream cheese icing.
Woody hung in there for lots of picture taking but he was about done!
.
Don't you just love baby toes?
.
And look at my sweet baby,
she is about 6 inches, okay more like 4, from being taller than I am!

That gown is beautiful. All 3 of mine wore the same gown that my parents bought in Belgium and I just love it. I love the idea of decorating the table with all the baby silver. Beautiful place settings.
