Caroline's Baptism

Caroline's Baptism went very well. We weren't sure it was going to happen when she woke up Thanksgiving morning with a fever, body aches, tummy ache, headache, cough and stuffy nose. Her fever broke Saturday morning and she was running around the house all day, so we decided to go ahead with the baptism. She was the only child in the stake getting baptized so our whole family was able to participate in the program. Collin said the opening prayer, Tom spoke on the Holy Ghost, I spoke on Baptism, Katelynn played the piano and Braeden baptized her.
It was a beautiful meeting and we're so proud of our baby!!
Sweet Caroline.

It's Great to be Eight!

My baby girl turned eight-years-old yesterday.
I swear it was yesterday when she looked like this.
I love her toes and her cute little tongue sticking out in the picture:)
Caroline is always full of energy and has crazy ideas.
She's always leading our family into doing some strange
game or activity that she makes up as she goes.
She's always moving and dancing.
She and Braeden have a lot of fun together.
She's always ready with smile:)

She's our fun little party girl who keeps us laughing!
She's smart and sassy,
full of hugs and snuggles,
loves to be a mama's girl,
has dad wrapped around her finger,
and brings us so much joy.
Happy Birthday Caroline!
We love you!!!

Caroline's Ear Piercing Experience

I told both my girls they could get their ears pierced when they turned eight-years-old. I figured by then they were old enough to take care of their ears and might not be as careless with their earrings. I realized the other day that Caroline's 8th birthday was coming up and she had not mentioned earrings at all. So I asked her if she was interested in piercing her ears and she exclaimed, "YES!!" I asked her if she was sure, because she hadn't mentioned it at all. She replied, "Well, you told me I had to wait til I'm eight, so I didn't ask again." That didn't stop Katelynn from asking a thousand times before her eighth birthday!!
We didn't have school yesterday and her birthday is Friday, so we took Caroline to the mall for the ear piercing experience. :)

She's sooo excited!
Waiting and watching the lady prepare the piercing gun.
Getting a little nervous.

First ear...... Now she knows it hurts a little for the 2nd ear....
Looking in the mirror at the finished product
and feeling a bit relieved.
