This past Sunday was a very special day for Karter and Kaden, they were both baptized at church. We met with Pastor Carol Sinykin on Saturday morning to run through the service so we would feel more comfortable with it on Sunday, but what we didn't practice was having a crying baby during the service! Church is during Kaden's normal nap time and he usually sleeps right through the service, but this week the music kept waking him up and he wasn't very happy about it. He did calm down about halfway through, after he was baptized, so apparently that was all he needed!
Karter was a little restless during the sermon, but loved being the center of attention for his baptism. A yellow crayon may or may not have been in his hand the whole time!
Kaden loved the water on his head and it helped him calm down (much to my relief!). The cutest moment came after Kaden was baptized, they gave each of the boys a hand stitched handkerchief and Karter used his to dry Kaden's head off!
The church welcomed the boys and gave them each gifts...a quilt, cross and candle.
This was one of those events that we were hoping we would live closer to family for so they would be able to celebrate this special day with us. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, but we are lucky enough to have the Davis family in our lives and they have become like family to us. Brian, Mary and Martha came down from Savage to be there for us!
