A Big Day for Gwenny!

Today turned out to be a perfect day, with temperatures in the low to mid 20’s with lots of sun!  A great day for a Baptism!
Little Gwenny had a large turnout of family and friends to witness her Baptism.  It was a good day for travel, and a lot of people came a long way! One thing about Ontario, it is not small!
This is a first picture of Gwenny, all dressed up, just prior to entering the Church.  The Baptism Gown that she is wearing comes from the  Family, and is over 100 years old!  It has been passed generation to generation!

Pastor Bob greets Gwenny to her Baptism… yes, that is Kevin and Ramona on the right, who are now Gwenny’s God Parents!

Little Gwenny was amazing… making no fuss during the whole ceremony, even when Pastor Bob bathed Her in water, she just looked around like nothing was going on!

Grand Parents in the back and Great Grammas’ in the front!

After the Baptism, we all enjoyed a nice pot luck luncheon in the Church Hall.  We managed to get this picture, of Gwenny, being held by Judy’s Brother Howard, with Brother Gary on the far left, and Brother Bob on the far right!

Everyone wondered where Gwenny’s red hair comes from, and Howard had to show us!  Him and his Wife, Terry, just came back from a 2 week vacation out east…

Thanks to all Family and Friends that came out today in support of Gwenny.  It made for a very nice day for friends and Family to celebrate! 
We all ended up back at Chris and Kristina’s house to open a whole bunch of gifts for Gwenny, but it seems that camera didn’t make it there!  Oh well, it was a great time had by all.
Till tomorrow…
