Cassie’s Baptismal Invitation

Since most of Cassie’s Godparents are from outside the US, we had to look for other ways to ask them and this is what we resorted to

Cassie fitting the baptismal wear (excuse the sleepy eyes) that has been passed down from generation to generation (in Marco’s side). Marco’s abuelito even wore this during his own baptism. I know I have a thing for the old and the vintage but this gown takes the cake.

A picture with Cassie and Daddy later that day. Notice the macarons and cake pops are already gone.

Marco and I wanted Cassie baptized when his family came to visit Houston, we even attended the pre-Jordan class right before I gave birth, but Cassie was only a few weeks old when they visited so we decided to schedule it for a later date. We wanted it done before the end of the year but our parish, St. Angela Merici, advised us that the schedule was a bit hectic due to the holidays so the soonest they could schedule us would be after the new year. We went with January 3rd instead and I’m glad we did because it gave us time to prepare.

We didn’t really have a theme for her reception at home but then when I started gathering whatever we had to decorate the house, a little bit of “vintage” would pop up every now and then so I decided to work with what I had and it turned out better than I expected.  Thank you so much to all of our neighbors and family friends who made this possible and of course mom and pop (grandmy and grandy) for going all out and allowing us to have Cassie’s reception at home.

There’s a lot pf people who love you Cas! Welcome to the Christian world our little girl.
