Baptism Day.

Alright. I guess since it's his day it's okay that this ended up as the first picture. I am struggling with blogging. I don't know what my problem is. Here's the post....

(I know this is years late. I have a list of about a dozen blog posts I need/want to do. This is my first to catch up. Enjoy!)

Sam started his Baptism Day by getting right into the jumpsuit and then sitting to pluck some soft tunes. Daniel and I think he will start a band later and be the keyboardist/sound mixer. His band will be called "Super Sam Band". Or "The Worms". He's cool like that. Before the baptism. A picture with dad. This is as serious as he would get. He gets it from his dad. And when his dad was telling him to knock it off, I gently reminded his dad that he is following his example. Sam's good at following examples!
See? So silly. That's why we call him Silly Sam. Dang! He's cute!
This is Sunday. With the suit and the new scriptures and bag. He thinks the scripture bag is like Indiana Jones' bag. So I figure it was worth Abbie's effort because the boy will actually bring his scriptures to church. Well, IN TO the church. They haven't stayed in the car in the parking lot for 2 weeks now! Next we work on tucking in the shirt. Baby steps.
The mom, the dad, the Sam. Look at Sam's glow!
The cleanest boy in the world. Oh, Sam, I can't believe you are baptized and have the Gift of the Holy Ghost. So handsome. So good. So silly. So our wonderful 8 year old!

DANG!! I just deleted it! It's going on the top of the post now!

One of the things I am looking forward to the most is to see the kids in our ward make the choice to be baptized! I'm tearing up right now, just thinking about it!

It's so wonderful to see how happy Sam and your family is, to see him get baptized! Congratulations Sam!

He does look all grown up now!
As for the band, my guess is something like the Godzilla's or whatnot.
