Saturday we left the Dells around 2 pm, so that Ryan could get to the Omro Holiday parade on time. He said it was VERY cold, but he had a good time. I didn't take the kiddos because it was too cold for them. Plus I needed to start getting ready for Lilli's baptism on Sunday. We prepped the veggies for the strata and baked and frosted a cake.
Mom and Bill got into town around midnight Saturday night. They were supposed to be in earlier, but their flight was delayed because of the weather in Milwaukee. They got to the house and then we went to bed.
Sunday morning Grammie and I were up early to get the food put together for the baptism. We made a Brunch Strata and Southwestern Egg bake. We also started a ham in the crockpot. They were both very good. My friend Sheri came over to our house to start the food in the oven while we were at church. Thanks, Sheri! :)
The baptism went very well. Lilli was wonderful. Everyone told me that the way she held her hands it made it look like she was praying.
Caden was a two year old. I held him during the baptism. He woke up with a cold that morning, so he kept trying to touch his nose. I had to pull his hand down. That went on for a little while. People started snickering a little, so I think he liked be the center of attention. He then wanted to go to Grandma, but he only got half way and then stopped. He ended back up with me again. Little stinker! :)
The food all turned out well. I was very grateful that Pam, Linda, Sam, and Alexis also helped with the food. I thought I would have too much, but it turned out to be the perfect amount.
Here is the cake I made.
Lilli received wonderful gifts from everyone. Here are a few pics:
Monday Caden and Lilli were spoiled by Grammie, Oma (my mom), and Papa (Bill). Caden even said, "Oma," so my mom was happy about that.
I also love these two pics:
We took Caden's high chair off and put it by the window. He crawled up and into it.
Here is Lilli sleeping on Grammie's lap.
Have a great night!
