Earlier today was Francesca's baptism. To keep with the tradition, she was baptized at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Miami and Father Gerardo performed the ceremony. Her godparents were Adrian's cousins (Lauri & Sebastian)... Unfortunately earlier this morning Sebastian was called away on a EMERGENCY business trip so he couldn't attend the baptism but luckily Joaquin, my brother-in-law was able to step-in as a substitute.
Our baby girl was well behaved during the whole ceremony. She did get a bit fussy when Father Gerardo poured the water over her head but she calmed down quickly.
After the ceremony, we all took pictures with Francesca and then headed home for the reception.
We had set-up a tent with tables in our backyard just like we did for Felipe's baptism. The whole week we had been praying for a beautiful day because the weather outlook said it was suppose to rain today. Luckily the weather was really nice so it was fun to be outdoors. My mother-in-law had prepared some Salmon and Chicken spreads, we bought some brushetta and a Tortilla Española. We served all this to the guests until the food was ready to be eaten. As the main course, Adrian had prepared some Pumpkin Raviolis, 4 cheese Tortellinis and Proscuitto di Parma Tortellinis.
In the end I think everyone had a great time.
