For those of you who may not know much about the LDS (Mormon) religion, instead of getting baptized when you're a baby, you do it at the age of 8 years old (or older, if you choose). Last week our twins chose to be baptized, and I can't help but share a few too many photos from our little photo shoot at the Salt Lake City Temple!
Their adorable dresses were from Zulily, and yes, TOTALLY over the top, I know :)
That's what we all loved so much about them!
They came sleeveless, so we bought an XS lace women's crop top from Forever 21 to put over them, along with those small, white skinny belts that had tiny gold bows for the latch. It pulled the whole look together, and for two little girls who are WAY taller and somewhat bigger than the average 8 year old... we did the best with what we had, and it turned out pretty dang cute!
Of course the twins' favorite part about the dresses were the "twirl factor".
These chicks were SO patient with me and Cason as we tried to get in every shot possible that we could think of, to be able to look back and remember this moment in their lives... but we couldn't walk away without the traditional crazy, sassy, silly posses either :)
I'm so proud of these amazingly smart, worthy, faithful, kind, darling little girls of mine. They are the light in my life, and make me laugh every day. Their hugs and kisses are the best around, and you'll never find anyone more social or willing to make another person feel included than these two. Their smiles are infectious and their positive, helpful energy radiates from every fiber of their being.
I'm so blessed that they are mine. I don't know what I did to deserve them in my life, but I am SO happy and lucky that they chose me to be their Momma.
... more on the actual baptism day soon!
PS: sorry for the quick update, but I figure something fast is better than nothing at all! Things are moving at a rapid pace around here and big changes are happening! Can't wait to share more!
