Levi's Baptism

Levi was baptized at Evangelical Reformed Church on Sunday, April 10th, 2010.  Welcome to the Lord's family, Levi!

Pastor Rich Hamlin, Jr.

So many family members came to help celebrate!  Grouped from left: Stephen and Bob Gorham; Stephanie, Steve, Garret, and Ethan Wright; Beth and Brian Garrett; Jennifer, Nathan, and Levi Gorham; Ruth Garrett, Margaret Easterbrooks, Harold Garrett; John, Amy, and Madison Pepper; Kevin, Randy, and Jill Poleskie.

Levi's baptismal gown was worn by his Great-great-great-grandfather on the Easterbrooks side.
This blanket was crocheted--and nearly completed--for her grandchild by Mary Gorham before she died.
Nathan and I had only just gotten married when she started it; apparently she was hopeful.
Stephanie Wright finished the edges.  We were glad to have a reminder of Mary at this special occasion. 

After the baptism we hosted a reception for everyone.

Who can compete for attention when golf is on TV?

Little Madison took a liking to Ethan!


  1. How sweet. Wish we could have been there too! Lots of love, MR

  2. These are such beautiful photos! Wonderful family memories--I wish we were there with you to celebrate Levi. He looks so adorable in his "heritage baptismal gown".
