Trevor takes the plunge!

He did it! Trevor got baptized on Saturday, October 13th, 2007. Trevor has been preparing all year - um, his whole life - for this special day. The anticipation was excruciating for him. He finally turned 8 years old in September. Here is our little family just before the meeting began. We were all soooo excited! He and his cousin/best friend Jacob decided to be baptized on the same day and that made the whole experience so much more special.

Family and friends came from all over to be there with us. We had quite a crowd there. Our party was about 2/3 of the congregation! We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many good people. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, good friends - you just can't beat 'em!
Jeremy and I experienced so many emotions on that day. It was that strange surreal feeling when you've dreamed of something for so long and it just doesn't feel like you thought it would. We both thought we'd feel much older when our first child got baptized. I was reminiscent throughout the day because I was baptized in the same font 20 years ago. Sheesh! How old am I? Well, I'm the same age my parents were when I was 8 years old. Hmmm. Think about that! We could not be more proud of our good sweet boy - such a big choice for a young spirit.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime memorable event.
