Kory’s christening day

Last week on Sunday the 7th of May 2017, it was Kory’s christening day.

Organising Kory’s christening day was a very enjoyable experience, all the planning and prepping over the last few months resulted in everything running smoothly and made for a memorable, perfect day.

We even got lucky with the weather!

Being new parents, our social life with friends and family has sort of been non existent so it was also nice to see and catch up with everyone whilst celebrating our sons christening.

The service itself was beautiful, even when Kory was crying loudly throughout most of it (he was so tired, I tried to get him to take a nap before we headed for the church but he wasn’t having any of it.) The vicor probably thought he was christening the anti christ himself the way Kory threw his head back in a tantrum when the holy water touched his head!

…Just kidding!

Me and Rory would like to thank everyone who came to Kory’s christening and for all his cards and very generous gifts. We are so grateful for everything and can’t thank you all enough for celebrating Kory’s day with us and making it truly special.

Here are just some of the gifts Kory received:

But my favourite gift has to be this wooden christening memory box that someone had made for us.

Now I have somewhere safe and special to keep all of our memories and keepsakes from Kory’s christening day. I highly recommend a memory box to any parent whose child is getting christened.

Here’s what’s inside:

  • Kory’s first bible
  • Kory’s personalised christening shoes
  • Personalised christening banner with Kory’s name
  • Christening photo album
  • Christening candle
  • St Christopher necklace
  • All Kory’s christening cards

If you’re thinking of getting your child christened or are maybe in the middle of planning your child’s christening, here is my checklist which you may find helpful:

  • Invitations
  • Church
  • Venue
  • Entertainment
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Decorations
  • Cake

And to end this post, here are a few pictures from the day.

Proud parents.

Mum and son.

Dad and lad.

5 generations!

Parents and godparents.
