Special Day

Emree was baptized on February 14, Valentines Day. I think she'll always be able to remember it. We had so many of our family and friends there to support her and to share the special occasion with us...

Her baptism dress is a very special dress loaned to us and has been worn by over 100 little girls! A list has been kept and Emree's name has been added...

Bets were going if Joey was going to cry...He managed to do the best he could...She is our sweet little girl after all and is growing up soooo fast...

I did not fair so well...I was an emotional wreck...I'm sure everyone there thought I was crazy, and I am...I am crazy for this little girl that can't possibly be eight in my head, but yet here she is eight and accountable!! Needless to say I wished I had medication that day...And worst of all she wanted me to say the opening prayer...Seriously, it was painful for all that had to endure it!! Notice the tissues in my hand in this picture...

We had a good time with family and friends...Rye is soaking wet in this picture and had a baptism of his own in the water fountain...

On the ride home Emree said, "I feel so fresh!"....Let's just hope that feeling lasts forever!!!...

So, I am crying again, just reading this. I love her comment at the end. Those were my thoughts exactly when I was baptized!
