|For some reason I love this picture because it so reminds me of our life; choatic but everything seems to fit.|
Baptism took place on Sunday at the church we have been members at since before the girls were born. We recently got a new priest from Pennsylvania and it was his first baptism in this parish. We broke him in though with four baptisms at the same time. The babies were awake the entire time. Isabella blew raspberries throughout the entire baptism and had us all laughing. And not a single baby fussed when the cold holy water was poured on their heads. Each baby did take turns spitting up though so we passed a burp cloth from kid to kid. After the baptism was over Kenzie's godparents went to have a crossed blessed and Father Paul was texting his priest friends back in Pennsylvania that he had just baptized quads. He was pretty excited!!
All of the quads have different godparents who Paul and I chose while we were pregnant. The older three kids have our brothers and sisters as their godparents. Since their were 4 sets of godparents that had to be chosen it took a little time to decide.
Kenzie's godparents are my aunt Sue and uncle Steve. Sue is my godmother and since Kenzie's middle name is after me we thought it would be neat that Sue was the godmother to two Rae's.
Isabella's godmother is my aunt Jenny. I have always looked up to my aunt and she has three amazing children herself. She is truly a a beautiful person on the inside and outside. Izzie's godfather is my sister's fiance Jess. He loves our children as if they were his own. He also treats my sister wonderfully so we knew he would be able to give Isabella the love and guidance she will need as she gets older.
My aunt Dori & uncle Jim are Rylan's godparents. Rylan is named after my uncle Jim so it was only fitting that Jim would also be his godfather. We know that Rylan is loved dearly by his godparents.
|My sister stood up for Rylan because his godparents were unable to make it from MN.|
We have been so blessed by these four amazing miracles. We will always be thankful that we were chosen by God to be the parents of our seven children. We have vowed to bring up our children in the faith of the Catholic church and to be the best parents that we can be. Now with lots of prayers and guidance hopefully Paul and I will be able to fulfill that vow!
