kendra's baptism--oh the wonderment!!
what a marvelous series of highlights for this special occasion. after the invites were out, family arrived, speakers and music planned, programs cutely assembled, goodies made, and all the little details double checked we were so ready for our daughter to enjoy this big step in her life. kendra was so excited and handled the whole day like such a little grown up. the actual program she was very attentive to and will hold dear with some of these special parts. #1: Caden stealing the show during the musical number--he went up to sing with the cousins having a hard time with the 2nd and 3rd verses but conducted the music with such pristine form. after the song he stood and took a bow with arms neatly layed around his waist and behind his back saying to his audience, "thank you thank you". he proceeded to take another bow and another one and probably about 3 more after that then added that "i want to be an opera singer". #2 when kendra came up out of the water caden said, "i want to go in". #3 brianne quite sneakily grabbing hold of the skirts of Taylor and Zoey--thankfully she didnt hold them up too high. there was plenty of giggling during the song but the cousins, uncle dan + caden did a wonderful rendition of "i am a child of God". according to kendra she loved the whole thing but really enjoyed getting lots of gifts, the yummy food, and everyone being so nice and loving to her on her special day. she bore her testimony the next day and taught us all that even though the water was freezing cold she had a warm feeling inside. as parents we couldn't have asked for a whole lot more.
