The day has finally arrived. Lily Anne McPherson turned 8 and was baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is an event that Lily has eagerly awaited for as long as she could pronounce the word "baptism". She was so excited to enter the waters of baptism just like Jesus did and make sacred covenants with her Heavenly Father. She continues to be the best example to all of us of how a disciple of the Lord should act. Her obedience, kindness, and desire to serve her Father in Heaven are just some of the attributes that make her such a special girl. We're so proud of the young lady she is and even more proud of the girl that she is always trying her hardest to be. We're so lucky to have her in our lives.
As if her baptism day could possibly get better, we were lucky enough to be surrounded by family members and friends who love and support Lily. We're so grateful for all the efforts and sacrifices made by our loved ones to be here for Lily's special day.
Couldn't be prouder of our little girl!!

Pretty much cutest picture ever, by the way.
Lily and her BFF Sydney Olson. They sang a duet of "I'm Trying to be Like Jesus". Totally adorable. We're so grateful for the great friend that Sydney is to Lily.
