Sarah's baptism

So its tradition now that we get a group family picture to go in a 3 set frame for the baptism child, a picture with the Bishop, and a picture with dad. We had technical difficulties at the baptism and didn't get all the picture we wanted. So the other pictures came later. We usually get one with the whole family with the kid in the white clothes. My batteries went dead and we only got one and that was with Tom's eyes half closed. That is one big thing I regret not having fresh batteries "just in case" and not going out and finding a baptism dress for her to wear in the water. They have a very limited selection at the church and they only had a jumper that swallowed her whole. But other than that it was an absolute wonderful day. We tagged on with another family in our ward and she thought of things that I didn't and she filled in the gaps and I was so grateful for that. The spirit was soooo strong. She came down stairs the morning of and was so excited. I said sarcastically what are you sooo excited about. And she said to me in a tone like I really had forgotten or something. Mooooommmm I am getting baptized today. What a wonderful day.

Congrats little lady! I wish I could have been there. I'm so proud of her.

Four down, three more to go. Time sure flies doesn't it? :)

Yes Erica, it does seem as though he has his eyes closed in a lot of pictures. I wanted another one taken but the batteries went dead immediately.

Congrats on the special day. Love the three picture idea, even if you had technical difficulties. We had font difficulties for Jaron's baptism. We got to the church and the font only had a few inches of water! It always works out somehow! Your family is growing up.

Holy cow I can't believe I didn't post. I haven't been on any blogs in months. Tell Sarah that I am VERY proud of her. Baptism is a VERY special event.
