Dashiell's Baptism

We had many visitors from afar for Dashiell's baptism.  Uncle Ed brought most important religious artifact - a Red Sox baseball bat!  That got much usage in our backyard!

and the WHOLE FAMILY said "AAAAAmmmmen!"

simon went for the mafioso look, while monica stayed conservative

dashi says: "are you kiddin' me??!"

you'd think after 8 years of catholic education he'd be able to at least mouth the words right...

with god parents like these who needs parents?

um. dudes. you guys weren't thinking of... cutting me up, were you?

why don't we ask judy to babysit more often? hmmm...

it's always great when the caseys drop by. and if the food is free, you can count on it baby!

nana! seriously. BIG PILES of presents!

only a father of three can play guitar, and still bag his nephew trying to scam some cake icing. look out for u charles!
