Hope and friends.

Last week, Hope turned 8.

We went for some pictures of her in her baptism dress on her birthday.

Hope's baptism is on Saturday the 21st. 

I should really get on the making of the invites. I got as far as looking at the darling pictures. 

I'd called up my sweet friend Ashley of Sunshine and Shade Photography and she got us right in. She's the best!

I think this is the one I'll do the invite on. 

Hope's best cousin Maria is turning 8 in a few weeks so we did pictures together. 

and Hope's best friend Lily is also getting baptized on Saturday at a different time, so I thought it would be fun if she came too. 

I can't believe my baby girl is 8 already. 

Saturday is Hope's big day. She's very excited about it.

(for those that don't know...The 8th birthday is a big deal in the Mormon church because that is the age a child can choose to be baptized a member of the church. )

in the 4th article of faith  in the mormon church, it says...

We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.''  found here
