Since my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew were in town over Thanksgiving, Sunday was the perfect opportunity to have Cece's baptism. Todd's immediate family as well as some cousins came into town for the celebration so we all went to 12:30 PM mass and the baptism was directly after mass. We had asked our sister-in-law (my brother's wife), Meghan, as well as our brother-in-law (Todd's sister's husband), Brian, to be her Godparents and they both gladly accepted the honor. Cece did really well during the baptism too. She slept for most of the mass and only fussed for a few minutes during the baptism. Afterwards, everyone came back to our house for a reception/party and we enjoyed spending time with family especially since we hadn't seen Todd's family for Thanksgiving.
