AHOY Sailor Boy Gets Christened......

We have had an incredible week and yesterday we added to that and had a special occasion with our wee man Fraser being christened. It was quite a hilarious morning at the church, between the delirium of Fraser's godfather having only had two hours sleep and taking selfies, getting the giggles and Cohen announcing he knew all about evolution loud enough for most of the church to hear. Our kids have a wide knowledge of a lot of things, and there are very few subjects that are off limits, as a result it's always interesting the times and places they decide to share their knowledge. Yesterday morning clearly being one of them, which made for a fun and interesting time, thankfully the service was pretty relaxed and they were accommodating to children.

Fraser wearing a 1970's two piece nautical sailor boy set.


He was off investigating during the service and making friends with older parishioners. 



He had a bit of fight in him whilst being christened, but cuddles with mumma fixed it all.



Fraser's godmother and godfather are two friends of mine I have known for thirty years each, they're like vintage friends and wine, they've gotten better with time. It's been a very long time since we've all been in the same room together. Collectively we've got a lot of history together us three, and the most hilarious of tales. We gathered at home after the christening for food and mid-morning bubbles. Mid-morning bubbles turned into a few more bubbles and a lot more giggles. It was a perfect end to a very busy and exciting week to be surrounded by such wonderful friends and love.


The kids had a wonderful time playing outside in the warm winter sun after the christening concocting all sorts of fun, whilst eating salad wraps and chocolate cake. Fraser's tastes however were much more refined.

Thanks for sharing some pics of your special day. Fraser is just the cutest in that outfit. I love that first pic with his little legs. Delicious! And how wonderful to share the occasion with your favourites. Got to say I've never seen seats like that in a church! Xx

It was a lovely time Leisa especially having two of loves here and being godparents. We had a great time having laughs afterwards. Fraser's little legs are delicious, so squeezable.
