Last weekend around about 30 friends and family were invited to attend Madeleine's christening at the Sacred Heart Church at Freshwater. The christening was to be at 8.30am followed by brunch along the waterfront at Trinity Inlet. Things didn't go quite to plan and we ended up having brunch before the christening that was eventually at 11.00am.
Madeleine's parents did a fantastic job of setting up a beautiful area for the brunch party. We brunched on bacon, sausage and egg rolls accompanied by an assortment of tasty Hor D'Oeuvres. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the "Cupcake" christening cake was a highlight.
The christening itself was special for Madeleine's mum and dad as this was also the church they were married in just a few short years ago. Madeleine never uttered a sound as the blessed water was poured over her little head but I think she was well and truly worn out by that stage from all the celebrations.

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.
