Sydney is now a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!

I don't think I have ever seen anyone more excited to enter into the waters of baptism.
~Sydney and her dad before her baptism~ Thank you to everyone who came and supported Sydney on her special day.

Grandpa Mathews gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. Uncle Ryan spoke on baptism. Grandma Mathews played the piano and Aunt Alicia led the music.

Grandpa Cazier said the opening prayer and Anderson said the closing prayer.

OK...so why does everyone cooperate and smile perfect with such an uncool background. Put us outside in a beautiful landscape and I've got my Christmas card photo!

Those are great pictures! Congrats to Sydney. I'm sure you can find a way to crop your family into a scenic landscape...
Photoshop can do almost anything.

Sydney seemed so happy last night. It was wonderful to be there.
That is a really great family photo. I'm sure you'll be able to think of something creative to make it work.

Awww, Im sad I missed it. Scott and me were arguing over who got to go and then after he left I thought, Hey Im in the primary, why is HE going?!!!! Love the pictures! You can totally lasso you guys onto a beautiful background! :)

Hey Amy,
I know there must be a way to change the background of a picture- You are right that is a PERFECT shot!

Congrats to your little girl Sydney. It's so exciting that she got baptized. All of these pictures are fantastic. Glad it was such a special night for your family.

Oh Man- I forgot to ask someone for prayers & musical number for my sons. At least I have a wk 1/2 left...
I love that she was so excited. You an see in her face how happy she is...
she's just so Beautiful! Great pictures. I am sure you'll figure something to do with that background!

Everyone stole my comment, I was going to say that you of all people should be able to create some gorgeous winter landscape with deer in the background. Great pics, great baptism.

Mikki said...

Oh! She looks so beautiful! Congratulations Sydney! That is so wonderful.
Maybe you can superimpose this image over the desired background? Good luck!

Nicki said...

She looks so pretty in her white dress. I bet you love having such a wonderful daughter.

I'm glad we got to come to Sydney's baptism. I loved the idea of writing our thoughts to Sydney on cards for her to keep. Chad got a kick out of reading a few of them from some of her cousins. They were all very sweet. I love your pictures and I know you can totally photoshop in a hawaiian sunset background or something.

I don't know how I missed this post Amy. Your sweet little Sydney looks so happy. What a great day for her.
I had to laugh when I read Mike's comment because I was thinking the same thing about your parents when I saw the picture; Richard is Grandpa Mathews???
I don't know why that seemed so shocking I mean they are like six years or so older than me, and I'm a grandma. It's just weird to see everyone growing older.

Okay Amy, when you photoshop your family picture - why don't you photoshop the picture of me and Sydney too and trim my arms, my double chin, etc. That'd be awesome! :) I'm so glad I showered that day. ;) And it's so true how excited Sydney was for her baptism. It's all she could talk about in Primary class. She's so sweet and I'm so happy I could be there for her special day.
