Sam's Baptism

Sam's Big Day~

Sam was Baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints this weekend. It is a really big step in our 8 year old boys life and we were so proud of him. You read & find out more about our Church here.
We are grateful for the LARGE amount of Family and Friends that were there to support and show there love to Sam & our Family. We have had a great time getting ready for the day and preparing and learning all about what to expect from baptism. He was able to go in to the water and under just like Jesus did. I was proud of him and how brave he was. The next day he was given the gift of the Holy Ghost. On the way home from the baptism he said to me I think I am the cleanest boy in the world right now. Then Sunday he told me to feel his chest.. he said can you feel it Mom..I have the holy ghost in me:) smarty boy!

We love you Sam!

You have such a great family and you and Rune are such great parents, you're kids are so lucky. I'm so proud of Sam and the decision he's made. I just love your family and miss you guys!

So glad that we could be apart of it. Thanks Sam for setting such a good example for Jessica. His comments about being clean and having the holy ghost are too cute. Oh and he really looked handsome in his new clothes.
