Baptism Sins And Smiles

Our friends, 
Rocco and Amy Canadeo 
had their two children.
Natalia and Giovani,
baptized in church last Sunday.
Yes-I know- I know-
I usually use CODE NAMES but Amy said it was okay.
Now I hope Rocco doesn't hunt me down and hurt me.
Isn't this a beautiful family?
Natalia is wearing a beautiful 
dress her Mom found for her.
It has little crystals sewn all over it.
Sweet Cheeks acknowledged that it
was a 
BEEYOUTAFULL DRESS.
However, not to be outdone she
showed Natalia her necklace.
Here she is showing if off.
That's pretty, said Natalia.
SweetCheeks smiled with pleasure.
Thank You! My Mom's friend
bought it for me in Paris (true)
and it is REAL DIAMONDS.
(so her friend told her).
Now that was NOT a sin because
she did not know she was lying.
See the church is still standing 
behind her...(and behind me-whew)
Don't ya love that "windblown" look?
This is not our church but it is beautiful and we
were honored to have been invited to 
attend this special family event.

So-wondering what the sin was?
Well, I think it is illegal in the 
state of Wisconsin for first cousins
to kiss in church-
At least that is what I heard!
Ask if HE cares!
Some sweet little girl pictures.
What's worse than being cousin kissed?
Being in the center of a 
Cousin's Sandwich!
Doesn't BigBoyE look like he is in pain?
I will be back with some 
more staging pictures tomorrow-
Lord willing and the church still standing!

The girls all look so pretty together; Natalia's dress is gorgeous. Oh dear, BigBoyE looks like he is suffering!
Your church looks impressive from what I can see in the background.

I love the 'diamond' necklace, and it is on such a beautiful girl. We won't call him and tell him he was blogged.

Maria Elena said...

The girls look so pretty! What a fabulous time! BigBoy is getting so big!

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, The kids look like they are having fun, but I can see where Big Boy E is coming from. Surrounding just by girls, but it will change when he gets a little older. The church is beautiful and I love looking at the stain glass window especially with the sun shining behind them. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

That is a beautiful family. And Sweet Cheek's necklace is beautiful, too! And all the girls look so pretty! Those poor boys look like they need a few more boys to team up with, though. They are so outnumbered! LOL

Lucille said...

Such lovely photos of all the children! That is a lovely necklace SweetCheeks has. Natalia's dress is lovely and so is her hair. All the children look so happy and they seem to get along so very well. You are such a busy woman, Diana! I just can't get over how you never seem to stop. But then, it's so much better that way because you don't get lonely or bored.
