Baptism day!

Saturday, my little boy was baptized! I couldn't believe he is old enough, it came so fast!

He was so excited. His daddy took him over to the church a few hours earlier and showed him the font. He said he didn't want to wait, and just wanted to do it now!

He looked so handsome in his new church clothes, (which he ruined afterword crawling all over the gym floor! grrrrrr...)

He and his daddy looked so cute in their white. I felt a little left out- I wanted to wear a cute white outfit, too!

His cute little cousins Ellie and Jessie sang "If the Savior Stood Beside Me" with their dad, my brother. He broke down during the last verse so the girls had to finish it all, but it was a tender moment! Thanks Cory and Jennie!

The birthday cake was the bane of my existence for about 4 days as I baked the layers, filled them, rolled out the fondant- RE-ROLLED the fondant, cut out the circles, made the marzipan sea shells..... ugh! All in all, I was very pleased with it. I just wanted it to be extra special for his big day. He watches "Ace of Cakes{" with me all the time and was expecting something spectacular. I hope this fit the bill ok. It was a white and blue swirled cake with white chocolate mousse filling and an almond frosting. It tasted really good, too!

Yesterday, (Sunday) I wasn't sure we had the right kid with us at church. He insisted on going up and baring his testimony, which he has NEVER done in his entire life! (I said, are you sure you want to? What are you even going to say? to which he replied, "I don't know. I'll think of something.") I offered to go up with him, but he didn't want me to, and just walked right up on his own and bore his testimony!

Then, he sat through sacrament meeting and read a whole chapter of the Book of Mormon- all by himself! After church he told me he was just like Parley P. Pratt (from the early days of the church) because he couldn't stop reading the scriptures. Then, last night he sat up in bed for 45 minutes reading more scriptures! Whoever this kid is, I'll keep him for sure!

I'm so proud of my little guy! It was a great day!

What a great kid and an awesome cake! He was very excited to show me his scriptures in primary and I had a hard time telling him to put them away when he was really reading them!

That cake looks (and sounds) amazing! Do you want to make me a birthday cake? :) His testimony was so sweet and how awesome that he is loving the scriptures.
