Porter's Big Day!

This weekend our Porter was baptised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! It was a wonderful weekend! Both of his grandpa's gave talks and his grandma's said the prayers. His cousins and aunts sang a song and his uncles helped confirm him a member of the church.
I know that all mothers say, "It feels like he was JUST born!"
But I truly feel this way! It couldn't have been eight years ago that all these men gathered around my little boy to give him a name and a blessing, and now these same men gather to confirm him. It was a humbling moment for this mommy. A glimpse of things to come. Will I teach him correctly so he continues this path we have placed his feet on? I pray I will.
Porter is such a choice little spirit. He is such a tender soul. I am so blessed to be his mother.
Well done Porter Boy! WE LOVE YOU!

Trever and Porter all ready to go!

All of us at the church

What Sweet Boys!

My time flies! I can't wait to experience all those fun milestones that motherhood holds for us. I wished we lived closer so I could know your little guys better. I do know this: If your boys are anything like their mama, they are very blessed indeed! Love you! Tell Porter congrats!!

Hi Guys,
I had found your blog a long time ago, but trying to find it again was a chore! Any way, the reason for looking for it again is we are having a 15 year reunion....
July 11th! You have to come to this one, cause you didn't come to the last one!!! Let me know if you can make it!!!
