Emily turned 8 this past summer. She had a fabulous slumber party to celebrate her birthday. Then the next question quickly followed. When was she going to get baptized? The long awaited event has now happened. Yesterday.
We had a wonderful program. Grandma Ginger gave a talk about baptism. She even had part of the wall of Jerusalem with a strait gate representing baptism. Emily wore the dress that I wore when I was baptized. She looked beautiful : )
Emily was lucky to be baptized and confirmed by Robert Burgoyne, such a good family friend. He did a great job of explaining how to be baptized and helping her feel comfortable.
Even though the Littles had friends in town for the weekend, they still made it top priority to be there for Emily. This is another family that has known Emily her entire life. I can remember Lori bringing Adriana over for a visit. Em was peacefully sleeping in the baby swing! Thanks for coming guys! That really made Em feel special.
Here is all the local family. It is great to be able to be part of each others lives. Thank you for supporting her!
Many times during the program the question was asked, "What happens after baptism?" One answer is Chinese BUFFET! We started this yummy tradition after Ry's baptism and continued it with Emily's.
