Baptism


I am so proud of my sweet daughter and the big step she made to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is a big decision to be baptized.









It was the perfect day! Beautiful weather, nice breeze and sunny. While we were sitting in the chapel, she looked around at all of the wonderful people that came to support her and smiled so big at me and said, "Mom, look who is here. I am so happy right right now." Sweet little Amelia was so nervous before. She was almost green. As soon as she came out of the water, she beamed at me and said, "That felt SO nice. I don't know why I was nervous."

Good job sweetie! We are so proud of you and the choices you have made. Heavenly Father is proud of you too. We love you!

That's very exciting! I love her dress (did you make it?). If I lived closer I would have been there. :)

Beautiful girl who already knows what it is like to feel the spirit. She looks like an angel.

Just Beautiful! I wish we lived closer so we could share in her special day. I soon will too have a child ready to enter the waters of baptism next month.

How adorable! I love the pictures of her with her daddy. But where are the pictures of you with her. You are her mom you know!:) I know you are usually the one behind the camera, but you should take some with her. She'd love some someday.

You can change the dates??? I have got to know how to do that. I'm always either staying up late or kicking Mike off the computer so I can blog something.

And as usual, Amelia looks beautiful.

She looks so grown up!! I'm loving the dress.

Holy Cow, I can't believe she is already baptized. I remember when we first moved into the ward and she was in our primary class. What a sweet heart she was and I'm sure still is. Congratulations Amelia!

We need to go to dinner so call us. I would love to get together with several people from the ward...let's have a party!

Congratulations to the whole family. That is such a big day. It seemed to me that everything has gone twice as fast since Hannah was baptized!

She looks beautiful!

Gabriela said...

Congratulations-she looks beautiful. Please tell me you didn't make that dress-or I will feel totally inadequate as a mother. :)

Congratulations...oh what a happy day. I've only got one more kidlet baptism to go, I think that's why they called me into Primary Presidency, so I won't go into withdrawals. Now all of the children in our ward who are getting baptized are a little teeny bit mine.
