P.S. – I forgot to mention that Johann’s traditional Baptismal gown and cap are the very same ones that I and my two sisters had used when we were Baptised as infants.

    hi ej and jam,

    enjoyed viewing the beautiful photos. it was nice naka traditional baptismal gown si johann. sori i wasnt able to rsvp because i dint receive the invitation. joke lng. medyo alanganin lng talaga. nice colorful cupcakes. i like the tarp simple lng nakafocus sa pics ni johann. lahat nice including of course, the invitation. God bless!

    Si Lolo Ed present in spirit sa baptism ni Spud (Johann). Looked like everything went very well except for the traffic in Metro Manila, maraming hindi naka-attend sa baptism ritual. Hindi bale nakahabol lahat sa reception. Nice-loking cup cakes. Sino ang nag-bake? Also watched the video of Tricie in You Tube.
