We drove up North. Our Great Granddaughter Cee Cee was baptized last evening.
The baptismal gown has been packed away in the trunk since it was worn by Great Grandson Hey Mikey for his baptism. The gown hung in the living room all week. The cap had blue ribbon but Jen brought some pink ribbon along with her.
We met Jen, Andy and Cee Cee in the parking lot of the church...everyone else was inside at Mass. I changed out the ribbon and Jen dressed Cee Cee in the backseat of her vehicle. (luckily it was reasonably warm 40 F)
Jen and I both wore masks...I stayed a distance away and just watched.
The gown fit just fine. (Big sigh of relief) For those of you who don't know...this baptismal gown was made out of my wedding dress....next door neighbor Jo and I made it.
I knew that my big girl camera wouldn't like the dark so I used my cell phone to take a few photos.

Other family members were already in the church. We did not go inside..we felt that it would be unnecessary exposure for Far Guy. We left for home as Jen and Andy walked toward the church with Cee Cee.
Andy took a video for us ...so it was almost as good as being there. The important thing was that she was baptized. We got to deliver the gown and see her dressed in it.
