We made it to the church on time (cue My Fair Lady), and had a dress rehearsal before the service started. Bobby had quite a turnout of family and friends to witness his big event. His G-Ma and PawPaw were there, along with his Great-Grandma on his Daddy's side of the family. Representing Mommy's side of the family were Aunt Jan, Uncle Tom, Grammy (Bobby's, not mine), Colin and Owen (our cousins) and Bobby's Godparents (and cousins), Laurie and Duane. "Aunt" Carol and "Uncle" Bob were also with us. The Pastor gave a great sermon, and even mentioned Bobby by name, which was pretty special. Bobby was such a good boy, and he wasn't at all upset when he was baptized. Mommy and Grammy were boo-hoo crying during the ceremony, because we're sappy.

Bobby and Mommy.
Bobby with his Godmother (ignore my son's inappropriate placing of his hand...which of course you'll notice now that I've mentioned it. Oops.).
I made everything for the party, except the cake. It was quite a spread...it included Meatballs, Baked Brie, Sausage dip, Curried Deviled Eggs, Ham & Pineapple Roll-Ups, Melon balls, Cookies (which were made by Carol, actually), Dip for veggies and Apricot Wraps with a plum dipping sauce.
We were quite pleased with the cake. One downside however....I realized I can't eat cake that has my son's face on it. Therefore, the entire left side of the cake containing Bobby's picture is sitting in our deep freezer, probably until we either move or the freezer dies.
Here are a couple other pictures from Bobby's special day....

Bobby with his cousins, Colin and Owen. Owen (the youngest) melted everyone in the room when he looked at Bobby and said "I love you, Bobby". I can't wait to see their relationship as they both grow up. Owen (and Colin) are great cousins. My little boy is quite lucky.
