As parents, we are so proud that Sommer has a testimony of the Savior and wanted to be baptized like he was.
If you take a good look at the painting behind Sommer and Wade, it is of the Savior walking into the water to be baptized. It really is such a neat painting and we thought it was an appropriate backdrop for the photos on Sommer's baptism day.
This bow in her hair is the same bow that was her blessing bracelet as a baby. We have a little poem that goes with it that reads like this:
A bracelet for her tiny wrist
For the special day she's blessed.
Another blessing in her life;
She turns eight and will be baptized.
Tie this bow in her pretty hair
And all in White She'll Happily Wear.
She's all grown up and ready to say,
"I'm all getting married. It's my Wedding Day!"
The bouquet she carries with great pride
Will have this bow all tied inside.
This little keepsake will last forever,
Throughout her life, she'll always treasure!
Isn't that the sweetest? It seems like yesterday I was putting it on her wrist for her blessing day. Where does the time go??? However, it is such a blessing to see your children grow and make good choices! We are so proud of our little Sommer-shine!
