Tommy's Big Day!

Today was Tommy's baptism day!! He has been waiting so long and he has been so excited for this special day. We were very fortunate to have so much of our family close enough to be able to attend. His dad was able to baptize and confirm him and Zack loved every second of it.


After the baptism we all headed over to my parents' home as it is the only place really big enough for us all to gather, and had a super yummy luncheon. For dessert, we had a big birthday cake from Costco that said, "Happy Birthday, Tammy!" Again, it would seem that I never have any luck when it comes to store bought cakes.

Anyway, we had a wonderful day and I know that he is so happy...you can see it all over his beautiful face. He has such a sweet and simple testimony, and it is so strong......He Knows!

I'd like to give a quick shout out to everyone who pitched in to help us with our big day - Thank you so much - I couldn't have done it without you (at least without being committed to the looney bin).

Here is a picture from his birthday party on Friday night (another reason I now need to be committed). Too bad I can't add volume to this picture to give you the full effect. Eight year old boys are so loud!!!

What an exciting day for Tommy and for Mom! Crazy that you have 3 kids baptized. I can't believe Maleah has less than 2 years until she's baptized. Having an 8 year old sounds so old....not that you're old or anything :)

Anyways - Congratulations Tommy!

How wonderful! It makes me so sad to be so far away and not be there! But I'm so happy for Tommy and I'm so happy to see how happy you are with your family.

He does look happy. Love him!

Can't believe you had all those boys over. Brave, Brave soul you are.


Still laughing about the cake. Hilarious!

haha, I didn't know the cake said Tammy. Tommy is so sweet. He's like the cute brown fuzzy duckling of the family. I'm so happy for him!
