Aaron's Baptism

I may or may not have a ton of pictures from Sunday, the day Aaron was baptized as someone who has accepted Jesus Christ into his heart as his Lord and Savior.  It has been an emotional couple of weeks for us and those close to us.  Lots of joy, excitement and tears!


 In the morning, before church

 Getting robed
 Aaron was baptized the same day as our very good friend Abby Golz (Janice's daughter).  This is Aaron and Abby checking out the church before the baptism. 

Almost time
 Heading in
Watching Aaron's baptism

We had so many people taking pictures, we literally have them from every angle.  And a video. 




 He had a look of pure joy on his face when he came out!




 Dee and Papa came to see it and we went to lunch with them at Cotton Patch.  We had a party that was really important for us to attend at 1pm so it was a crazy day, but Aaron did not want to push off the baptism so we forged ahead.  We had a small party at our house in the evening to celebrate with our close friends.  








 He got so many special gifts.  Books and devotionals and a beautiful leather bookmark engraved with the date of his baptism.  We were overwhelmed with the love and joy people shared with him. 

 This sign came from Grandma Beth and Grandpa Mike.  They couldn't be here but they sent such a sweet card and their love.

This had truly been the most amazing time!
