Abigail’s Baptism

December 14, 2014

A special day for a very special girl.

Abigail was baptised on December 14, 2014 at St John’s Cathedral surrounded by her family. Baptised alongside a few other young children, the ceremony was performed by The Very Reverend Dr Peter Catt (Dean of Brisbane), The Reverend Dr Ann Solari, and The Reverend Canon Dr Nigel Leaves.

Michael and I were incredibly honoured when Kristen and Matt asked us to be Abigail’s godparents. We were thrilled to accept… to love her, guide her, and be a part of her life. Just a little sad that we are now living in Rockhampton so not able to see and spend time with the Gibson family as often!

Abigail was dressed in a super cute white dress with her hair clipped back. Shoes eventually became non-mandatory as she was more comfortable barefoot.

With a love for water, Abigail waited as patiently as she could to be baptised…

But see how incredibly happy she was to be blessed!

She even made the congregation chuckle as she found a friend with a similar interest in water

Unfortunately, our camera died so we don’t have many photos to share!

Happy and proud parents!

Abigail’s baptism was followed by lunch with Matt and Kristen’s families, as well as Christine and her mom, at Il Centro.

Tried their infamous sand crab lasagne with creamed crustacean sauce – so rich and delicious!

And also enjoyed the potato gnocchiette with seared scallops and roasted chestnuts – yum!

It was also really nice to meet and spend time with both sides of their family 🙂 Thank you so much Matt and Kristen for not only letting us be a part of Abigail’s special day, but also her life!
