April 17, 2010 - McKenzie's Baptism

Today McKenzie became the newest member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What a great day!!! Lots of things had to come together to make this day to special. We want to thank all of our family and friends who helped make this day so special for McKenzie. We also want to give a big shout out to all the family and friends who were not able to make it here for the baptism. Please know that we love you and missed having you here.

The next pictures are from a special "Photo Shoot". It was just McKenzie and I there. What a special experience it was taking pictures of my Sweet Little Princess in her second dress of white. I am so proud of McKenzie and her decision to become of member of the church.

Be prepared for a picture over-load. I took pictures for over an hour. I believe I ended up with almost 200 shots. Here are some of my favorite....

I was able to create most of the things we used for her baptism.
This is what the invitations and envelopes looked like.
