Franklyn's Baptism August 14, 2011

Franklyn professed his faith in Christ on Mother's Day at the age of six.  It was one of the most special days of my life and I would venture to say it will remain the MOST incredible Mother's Day ever for me.  I can't imagine anything that could top my son becoming a Christian.  We decided to wait until August to have him baptized because we wanted our families to be able to come.  It was a special day for all of us.  Scott was nervous about baptizing Franklyn and there was good reason for it.  Scott cries whenever something truly touches his heart and I knew he would barely be able to speak that morning in the baptismal.  It was so precious how Franklyn looked up at his Dad the whole time.  He was so comfortable and wasn't bothered at all by the fact that he was up there in front of the whole church.  Scott could barely say what he needed to say, but somehow he managed.  Afterwards, a church member came up to Franklyn and told him how beautiful it was and Franklyn said, "Well, Daddy got a little emotional...." 
After church we went to O'Charley's and then to our house to take some pictures....

Franklyn and Aubrey...  Two beautiful six year-olds.  Look at the difference in those teeth!  This was before Franklyn lost his first front tooth.  Obviously it's after Aubrey already lost hers and got her Chiclets! :-)
