Oskar Grey Trefethen

Sunday, 25 November 2012, Oskar had his big day!  Blessing Day...and again, another infant wears my grandfather's christening gown, made for him in 1898 by his grandmother.

 Oskar with his Silver Eagle...silver crossing palms of babies insures the child of needed money, or so goes the old tradition.  But all Oskar seems to want is to sleep!
 Granny snuggling for a few minutes

It is always a joy to welcome a babe into the family and it's made more special to welcome him with a father's giving the name and the blessing for his future.  This was then followed by a delicious dinner made by Hank.

Special Day,  Special Babe!

Lovely pictures of a treasured day. I loved the blessing gown. All three of my daughters were blessed in my father's blessing gown.
Blessings and joy for you!
