Sawyer's Baptism

Sunday July 15, 2012 was a very special day, our little guy was baptized in front of family and friends at Redeemer Lutheran (where we were married). He wore the same tux John wore back in April 1983, he looked so handsome. His godparents, Tim & Megan Johnson, were his witnesses, and the service was performed by Pastor Sippy who married John and I. After the baptism, John's grandparents, Sam & June Hamra, hosted a delicious brunch for everyone at Hickory Hills Country Club. Sawyer was such a trooper and was a happy boy all day even during the actual ceremony.

Thank you everyone for being there on this memorable occasion in Sawyer's life. He is so blessed to be surrounded by such uplifting and loving people. We have video of the day, I'll be sharing later. Here are a bunch of pictures from the day.

  1. What a special day! Thanks for sharing. You also look so great. You have to tell me all of your secrets on how you lost that baby weight so quickly (and don't include things like working out or dieting!).

    1. Thanks Ellen! Don't worry I've done none of things, haven't had time! I have the easiest solution...nursing! It is amazing and helped me lose all the baby weight and then some.
