SATURDAY - The Anniversary Party
My aunt and uncle have been married for 50 years. Isn't that just AMAZING? In this day and age, I think it's an inspiration to find couples who are married for decades. And they still like each other. lol! How sweet is that?
with their granddaughter, Alina
The party was catered, which was nice for my cousin and her husband. They didn't have to worry about making food and had a chance to mingle with the guests and such. The food was delicious!
A fair amount of family and friends showed up. It was great to see the family. I really do like spending time with all of them. Is it because I don't see them often? Maybe. Still, it's wonderful being around them. I always feel so comfortable. And I think they've gotten used to me taking millions of pictures. lol!

I hardly ever get to see my goddaughter, so it was great that she and her family were there. She's growing up. I feel so old. lol!
me with Alina
Oh, and must not forget the cake!
All in all, a very nice Saturday evening.
SUNDAY - Alina's Baptism
So it was back to Pleasant Hill for Alina's baptism. This time it was just mostly immediate family. Actually, it was all immediate family except for us and my other cousin and her family. I'm glad we're all so close.
It's a little weird to me to take pictures in church, but oh well! All kinds of folks were taking pictures, so why not me too? lol! There were four babies getting baptized, all girls I think. The first one totally bawled, but Alina was good and didn't really say much. Good for her!

I don't have pictures of the actual water on forehead because I took a video clip!
After the baptism, we had a late lunch at my cousin's house. Same food as the evening before. Still just as good! :)
And yes, Alina had a cake!
I managed to hold both Alina and Breelyn. Yah for me!
I think that second picture should be my new Facebook profile pic. lol!
And it's cute to try and pictures of the two babies together. :)
Alina is about to tell Breelyn a secret
And so that was most of the day. Now I'm uploading photos. Then I'm off to watch Family Guy! :)
