I wanted to make sure I had an entry about my new nephew, Tristan's Christening. Chandra and Adam had a beautiful ceremony to dedicate their son to Christ. Tristan's God parents also stood to promise to guide and direct Tristan in the ways of the Lord. It was so touching to all share the occasion with family and friends. Namama and Bill, Buddy and Natalie, Mom, Dad, JB and Ian and I were all there to celebrate as well as most of Chandra's family. The baptismal gown that Tristan wore has actually been in the family for over 5 generations.
It was about a year ago that Chandra planned Noah's christening so it was neat to have Tristan's ceremony in the same chapel were Noah was christened. Afterward, Chandra and Adam had a reception at a beautiful winery about 15 minutes outside of Salado. I wanted to share some pictures Ian and I took of the event. We are so blessed by our family and are so excited to have Tristan as our newest nephew and cousin to our boys!
These pictures are not in any particular order so bare with me...

Noah stood up on the podium after the ceremony and it was so stinking cute. Looked like he had something he wanted to preach! :)
