Gates' Christening

 On May 17 our sweet baby Gates got Christened.  We decided to have this ceremony at First United Methodist Church since we were still living in Americus.  This is the church I grew up in and the church Robbie and I got married in.  

Gates wore the Christening gown that Hawkins wore 2 years ago and that Fleming wore 1 year ago.  Who will wear it next year???

Gates is so lucky to have this big family who loves him!

 Of course we had to celebrate with a cake and cookies!
