Baptism Day

This past Saturday was a very special day for our family.  My baby girl was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!  All month we held special family home evening lessons to talk about baptism and the Holy Ghost.  Last week she had an interview with our bishop, and he said she was the most prepared of any person he had ever interviewed for baptism!  He kept trying to ask her more in depth questions, but she knew the answers to all of them.  :)  We are so happy that Little Miss decided to be baptized, and know this decision will bring her peace and joy throughout her life.
Here are some pics from the day:

 Oh. my. cuteness.
You can see the excitement on her face!  She is radiant.

What a special bond she will have with her daddy because of this.

Our good bishop.  We love him!

A candid moment between sisters.  :)

Grandpa R, Uncle L, and Little Miss.

My side of the fam.

All the grandparents with Little Miss.  We were so happy Grandpa D could make it!  We weren't expecting him to.  (what is grandpa trying to tell me with this look?  LOL)

Me and my mama with Little M.

Daddy and his mama and gpa.

We used this picture on the cover of her baptism program.  She is so beautiful!  I am a lucky mother!!

The GORGEOUS dress Grandma W made for her.  Little M knew exactly what she wanted, and when she told Grandma, turns out her cousin (who is getting baptized this year also) wanted almost the exact same dress!!  So they will have matching dresses.  She is so thrilled about this!  It is a true princess dress.

Here is a back view.  Love the bow!

She looks beautiful! I am sad that we weren't there! :( They would have been so cute dressed in white together!! Their baptism dresses are almost identical too!
