Idaho Part 2 Baptism


The whole reason for our trip to Idaho was for Savanah's baptism. We wanted her to be able to be surrounded by family and friends on her special day! We were so blessed that her cousin Truman waited for her so they could get baptized together!




Savanah kept saying she was so excited and nervous. You couldn't wipe the smile off her face all day long!

Beau and I both wanted to give her something special. So I cut the underlining of my wedding dress and my mom made a ribbon out of it for her hair. I told her about the day I got sealed in the temple and how it was a special and important day for me. So I gave her the ribbon and told her I wanted her to have something special for her day, from my special day. Then Beau had picked out a gorgeous earring and necklace set for her. She was touched and has already put those things in a special place.

It was so nice after she got baptized to be able to have a few moments with her alone to talk about what just happened. The words she said to me, after she got baptised, will forever be in mind and I will cherish those moments when the spirit was so strong, and feelings we both experienced forever.



I know I say it all the time, but she really is such a good girl. She sets such a good example to her siblings and to us as her parents.

We are so proud of her decision to be baptized!

Wow that teared me up! You took a special day and made it even more engrained into her heart and mind forever. That day she will remember when the road ahead of her gets tuff from time to time.

I think your both amazing parents and your kids are so blessed to have been brought up in such a wonderful home.
