Our grandson Grant Jay Lashmet was baptized on Christmas Eve at Epiphany Episcopal Church in Odenton, Maryland by the priest Phebe McPherson.
|Grant's parents, grandparents, and godparents gathered for his baptism into the Episcopal church.|
|Being the center of all this attention can be intimidating for a five year old.|
|Grant gets a good Episcopal sprinkling.|
|There is a birthday cake for the baby Jesus. Grant blows out the candle and we all sing Happy Birthday.|
|After the service all the kids decorate gingerbread houses. It was a real celebration.|
|Grant was the star of tonight's show.|
|Here is his lovely sister Autumn.|
Sue and I drove from Tulsa to Eastern Maryland to visit with her son and his family, but the highlight was to attend Grant's baptism.
