Owen’s Baptism Day

This past Sunday we had Owen’s baptism.  It was a wonderful day full of love and support from friends and close family.  We chose not to have a huge celebration this time around. There is just so much going on that I didn’t have time {or money} to have a huge party.  So I just invited my immediate family and some of my close friends.  It was a gorgeous day on Sunday {the snow all melted that day, but of course it has returned today}.  We spent the morning preparing the house and food!

My wonderful friend {and photographer at Photography by Jen Davis} pulled double duty on Sunday at Owen’s Baptism.  Not only did she serve as his godmother but she also was his photographer!  I am so thankful and grateful that I get to have these pictures to document Owen’s special moment in the Catholic Church.  It’s one of those days where you don’t think to take pictures because you are in the middle of the ceremony but thankfully she is brilliant and captured each moment for us.  I have said it many times before, if you live in central NJ book her NOW {see below pics for more details on Jen}.

Now onto these gorgeous pictures from Jen (warning there are a ton of pictures below. I just couldn’t pick 5 or 6. I picked a ton and these aren’t even all of the gorgeous ones that Jen snapped that day!

Thanks again to Jen for documenting this wonderful day in our lives.  I am anxiously awaiting the announcement from Jen on her spring mini sessions! I can’t wait to get some new pictures of my 3 boys together! You can find all of Jen’s details here:

Happy Wednesday guys! Tomorrow I will be giving an update on my Beach Body 21 Day Fix.  It’s still going beautifully.  I didn’t even cheat on the day of the baptism.  The only cheats that I have had this week are 3 Coke Zeros!  Not too bad considering I usually have 3-4 a day!  I’m even contemplating becoming a coach because it’s so much fun and it’s challenging too.  I am trying my best to start setting an example for my kids on food and exercise.  They don’t eat the healthiest things but if I can show them that I am doing it they may want to try it too!  Sean has already asked me all about my new foods! He has even tried a few things!!!!

Talk to you all soon!
