In our family, we have a tradition that the eight days leading up to our children's baptism we celebrate them every day in a different way. You can read about Sarah and Andrew's "It's Great to be Eight"
here and here.
On the first day of Spencer'"It's Great to be Eight", Spencer and Mom went out on a date. We first went to the Scout Store to buy Spencer's cub scout shirt and a few other things he will need for cub scouts. Then, we had lunch at Applebees.
On the second day, Spencer received a new set of scriptures.
On the third day, we had a special Family Home Evening full of fun games and a yummy treat.
On the fourth day, he received a special "comforter" from Nonnie and Grandpa. This is to remind him of receiving the Holy Ghost and that it will be a special comforter to him throughout his life.
On the fifth day, Spencer and Dad went out on a date. They went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory and shopped for new church shoes.
On the sixth day, he received a new scentsy warmer to remind him that the greatest "light" in our lives is our Savior.
On the seventh day, we had a special evening of going out to Joe's Crab Shack and we went to see the movie, Madagascar 3.
On the eighth day, it was Spencer special day. He received a new sports coat and tie to wear for his baptism. We are SO proud of Spencer for making the decision to be baptized!
We had so much family and friends who came to celebrate with Spencer. He sure is loved!!!
