I'm so blessed


Just a short blog post to say how incredibly blessed I am.

Today is Sabrina's 8th birthday and she was baptized tonight. I can't even explain the feelings I have for Sabrina, her decision to be baptized, our family, our friends, and especially the gospel. I am so grateful for all of those things. And to all of you that came to Sabrina's baptism and supported her and us...I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you to family who helped with talks, prayers, music and even sick kids. Thank you to friends who came great distances to show your love for Sabrina. Thank you to friends who are not members of our faith that also came to support her and recognize the importance religion plays in our lives. Thank you to friends who helped with making Sabrina feel special. I know all of you sacrificed something today just to be with us and we truely appreciate it. But most of all I want to express my great amount of gratitude to my Heavenly Father who has given me such a beautiful little (well, not so little anymore) girl who is an absolute delight. She truely is a child of God and I am glad she was sent to us!!!


More pictures to come....

Hi! How exciting! I thought of you guys yesterday knowing it would be a super special day! Amy, you reminded me of how I felt on Chandler's Baptism day! It's almost undescribable. I hope Sabrina got my card in time for her big day! I love the pic! =)

We are so proud of you...sorry we missed it! It was a hectic day for us...we had out of town guests from Hawaii and my mom kept me busy (as you know she is a task master). Sooooo Sorry! We love you...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
