Baptism planning...

****caution a beathless rant to follow****

Or lack there-of! Xavier's baptism is coming up in 2 weeks and I've managed to get the invites out and everything scheduled at the church, but well, that's about it. We decided against a cutsie "Christening" outfit- he's 6 months old a bit too big- so we ordered some stylish linen pants from the gap and an awesome "ivory" button up from lil bogies, but the shirt arrived and it's yellow- so back to the drawing board we go...

And then there's the menu- we decided to do a lunch since everyone will be coming from church and I wanted it to be vegetarian, but all the "safe" things I could come up with required way too much planning and preparation. I've resigned myself to the fact that burgers and hot dogs are probably the easiest way to go, but even that's giving me a headache! A few people have offered to help out or bring something, but I'm not even organized enough to delagate! And the picnic portion is at a local park which always leaves the weather worry...

I'm dreaming of a flawless feast, family, friends, sunshine, laughter, bocce ball?!

The rational side of me knows that this is the last thing my sons baptism needs to be about... but there was a time in my life where I loved to plan and prepare and see all the details fall into place- the problem lies in the fact that I still love it, but lacking the free time and sleep of before it's a bit harder to bring it all together.

This is such a huge day for him, for our little family that I want it to be spectacular...
and I'm sure it will be...
