Arden's Baptism!

Today was such a nice day, Arden was baptized!!!
In the same church that Fabio and I got married in 9 years ago (almost)
and the same church where we baptized Nolan.
(The curch is udergoing a huge rennovation, so we couldn't have her baptized in the actual cathedral,
but it was still nice.)
All of the family met for brunch first at 310 Lakeside.  LOVE this place on Lake Eola.
It was a beautiful day, and Arden is so lucky to be surrounded by so many people who love her very much.
And today marks the day that she is officially declared a child of God.

Fabio and I have always believed in God and had a pretty strong faith. We were both brought up Catholic.
Over the last couple of years though, Fabio and I have really grown spiritually as we have turned to our faith even more during times when we have been very blessed and then during our times of struggle and uncertainty.  (And all times in between....)  We don't just go to church to say we go to church.  We talk about the things we are learning and we try and live each day the way He wants us to live.
And that's how we want to raise our children.

So baptizing Arden today was very, very important for us.

Fabio and I both decided to choose my brother, Adam, and Fab's sister, Denise, as her Godparents.
A Godparent's role to us is to be a spiritual leader.
And we have no doubt that they will do a great job.
Thank you for accepting that role, we love you guys very much!  Arden is a lucky girl.

And now, I have lots of pictures to share with you....enjoy!
