Spencer's 8th Birthday and Baptism

What a handsome young man, he already looks like a missionary (minus a few teeth).

June 1st 2008, my sweet little boy turned 8 years old. I still remember so vividly holding him in my arms seconds after he was born, in ah that he was "mine" What an honor it is to raise this Child of God. Daddy and I love you tons!
June 28th 2008 was a big day for our family. Spencer was baptized and we are so proud of him. He set a goal to read the entire Book of Mormon before he was 8yrs. and he did it. He is very aware of the commitment he is making to his Heavenly Father. He has such a giant spirit trapped inside that little body. His favorite song is "If the Savior Stood Beside me" and his Uncle Jeff and Aunt Cherie sang it beautifully. Our family was able to be there and join in this day with us and we are so grateful to them. We love you all!!

Grandpa and Grandma Garns came too. Grandma talked on baptism and gave me a baptism memory book. Grandpa made me this Amazing picture you see behind us. It says "Spencer, Put On the Whole Armour of God".
Grandpa and Grandma Meldrum were there as well. Grandma talked on the Holy Ghost, and gave me a silver CTR ring to remember to "Choose The RIGHT". Great Grandpa and Grandma Shumway, we were so glad you were able to be there.

Life has been a little crazy and summer has not helped my blogging, so I am going to attempt to do a mini catch up.

Here are pictures from Easter 2008 at Grandma & Grandpa Meldrums house with their cousins Dawson, Kenzie, Addie, and Uncle Tyler.
