Apparently Ralphie (A Christmas Story reference) doesn't like his new snowsuit so much!

Dominic and his cousin Bennett were baptized together on December 28th at St. Anne's Parish in Escanaba, Michigan. Below is the annointing with water portion. We've got the whole ceremony on video courtesy of Aunt Lory (great job, Lor!), but will show just the highlights below. What a great day.

While we were in the U.P. for Christmas, we worked it out to have Dominic baptized with his cousin Bennett (Colleen and Bill's son) at the same time at St. Anne's. This is the same church I grew up going to, where I was an altar boy and confirmed, and Dominic even wore the family baptism gown I wore way back in 1971! It was really a special day, and we're very thankful for all the work Colleen did with the scheduling and papers to make it happen. First, at left is a dynamite foto of Kirsten and Dominic just after the baptism ceremony. Mike is a lucky guy! Next to them is a photo of Dominic with his Godparents, Bill and Colleen Reader. They are also holding their son Bennett, part of the Double Dunkin' Duo, who was also baptized this day. Notice the extra large size of his baptism gown! Below that are Grandma and Grandpa Tighe with their newly-baptized grandsons. Dominic and Bennett both reacted very well to the annointing, no crying and no whining. I'll try to post a video of this later tonight.
Below left is a photo of all the family present for the ceremony, with Father: (clockwise from Dominic): Colleen, Bill, Eva, Dave, Fr. Janusz, Mike, Mom (just barely!), Lorne, Bennett, Patty, and Kirsten. At center are the proud parents posing with the Godparents and Fr. Janusz. At right is Dominic in the act, being blessed and annointed.

Dominic finally met his cousin Bennett, who's about 7 weeks older and a whole lot bigger. They played together several times, and at times seemed to actually perceive that the other was there!
