Eric Akeeno Belcher's Baptism

As soon as we returned from vacation we welcomed our nephew Eric into the family of God! My husband and I were thrilled to be chosen as Godparents. So now I will bore you with pictures of my family. I love this picture because it shows what a melting pot my family is! Starting from the left is my brother Ed, who is a catholic priest. Next is me, see how we look alike! We represent the German heritage of my family! LOL! Next is my husband Gary. He is half Japanese. Next is my sister in law Maria,holding the baby and with little Anthony at her hip; she is from Mexico. Then we have Sean, my husbands youngest brother, and my niece Jessika, who is half mexican and 1/4th Japanese! What a melting pot!

I love this picture! These are my men! Aidan is on the left, then my husband and best friend Gary, and Lucas on the right. Aidan is going to be a sophmore in highschool, he is 6 foot 3! Lucas is my athlete, and one of the sweetest high school seniors you could ever know. He is the one who went to Hawaii.

And here is my whole family, plus my mother and father in law. My oldest daughter Chelsea is the only one who looks 1/4 Japanese. I was so suprized when Lucas was born-he was blonde and blue-eyed! I just assumed all of my children would be dark! Isn't it funny! And if you have read down this far I beg your pardon for boring you, and thanks for hanging in there! hehe!

To have a brother that is a priest! WoW...does that make confession easier?! LOL! maybe harder?
I must say that your husband is a perfect blending of his parents. If you look at that bottom picture he has his mother's eyes and his father's mouth. And your family is beautiful!

Thanks Vonna! Ok, yes, that makes confession harder! I will never go to confession to my brother-no way! I have to go to another parish because we tend to become friends with all of the priests at our parish because of my brother. I have found a wonderful parish to go to now, but for a while I was a "roamin' catholic!" , searchin everywhere for a good confessor! haha! said...
