Emma turned 8 on June 1st and we had her baptism on June 2nd. She had so many friends and family come. My mom and dad, my brother Ben and his wife Sarina and my sister Becca and her sweet daughter Avery, all came from Utah! She had 3 friends come from school and many church friends.
In our Church, children are baptized when they turn 8. It is called the "age of accountability." At this age, they know right from wrong and can make decisions on their own. She has been counting down the months and then days until her special day!!
Her Gram and Grandpa gave talks on Baptism and the Holy Ghost. Her Uncle Ben was a witness and her Aunt Sarina and Becca gave prayers. Trey and I sang "I like to look for Rainbows" and he did a great job. That boy has a wonderful voice and was really excited to surprise his sister with our duet.
After the baptism, we had a dinner for the guests. Emma requested a cake that was like a wedding cake with tiers. A sweet lady in our Ward made this wonderfully yummy cake!
