Amanda was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on February 7th 2009. It has been a much anticipated day for our family... lots of build up and planning for an event that lasts but a few moments... and it was all worth it!
Though Amanda turned 8 in December (right before Christmas!) we opted to postpone her baptism to a less crazy time of year so that we could take the time to focus on her understanding of the covenant she would be making. She was very excited about her upcoming baptism!
I took a picture of her in her pretty white dress a few days before and it totally made me weepy.
We are so happy for Amanda and pleased that she chose to be baptized. My friend Julie took some pictures for us. Here are some of my favorites:
