Kate's Baptism and Double Confirmation

Kate was baptised at St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church and in keeping with their tradition, she was confirmed at the same time, as was I as a newborn. Blaise was also given the sacrament, so he shared in her day as well.

My Godmother and Grandmother:

Poor Kate (and Auntie Michelle K) didn't take her morning nap and was pretty unhappy at 10am.

She got dipped three times.

Kate's Godmother, Auntie Michelle K

Michelle has been a friend of mine since our Our Lady of Grace days when we would walk to school together. We moved on to high school together and then on to college. We have been through many significant moments together, but it was always the everyday, I know she is there moments, that meant so much. Michelle has grown into a strong and independent women - qualities which I hope Kate emulates. I also hope for her that she has such wonderful girlfriends throughout her lifetime, to share those everyday moments with.
