This past weekend we went up to Brownsville for our cousin Martha's third birthday party and her little sister Amy's, christening. That means it was a big huge Moss party with all eleven grandchildren in one place! Aunt Emily outdid herself with a Pajamas and Pancakes party Saturday morning, complete with pumpkin painting. Sunday morning was the christening of Amy. I love the way the Brownsville First Methodist church does baptisms. After Amy was baptized, the minister presented her to the congregation, and walked up and down each aisle for the congregation to see this precious little one to whom they had just made a Christian commitment. They also have children's church so when it came time for the little ones to join the minister at the altar, Little Philip went running and fell right in line with everyone, without the slightest apprehension or look back to mom or dad. After the christening we had a delicious brunch with shrimp and grits, one of my favorite dishes.
We hated to leave but Daddy had to drive to Starkville Sunday night to be there in time for a big campus recruiting event this morning. Thankfully, that is his only overnight trip this week. So this Monday morning we are getting back into our regular routine and finishing up costumes. Unfortunately, Peter Pan's hat, made from the neck of a green turtleneck, does not fit over his head. I should have known with that Moss noggin! I'm off to Hobby Lobby to see if I can find something that will work. Helen's Tinkerbell costume is all but finished. She will either look like an adorable little green fairy, or an adorable baby showgirl. Let's hope for the first part!
