Nicholas was very very ready to be baptized. He had been preparing and planning for an entire year. He was so happy when the day finally came. Jackson baptized and confirmed him. Nicholas and Jackson played a cello duet of "When I am Baptized" during the program. It was beautiful. Nicholas is full of faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. When we learn gospel principles at home, they just seem to make sense to him. It is like he is remembering them, not learning them for the first time. He is a good and kind friend to the people around him. I am so lucky to have him as my son. I love you, Nicholas!
His siblings were all so excited for him that they all wanted to be touching and hugging him.
Alexander only had one shoe on. I grabbed his shoes on the way out the door and threw them in the van. Once we arrived at the church, I sat him on the edge of the van floor and started putting on his shoes. He refused to let me put a shoe on one foot because his toe hurt. I decided it wasn't worth worrying about and just carried him in with one shoe on.
I regret that I didn't get any pictures with he and Jackson or he and I. We were there...I promise :)
