A Special Day!

 On June 1st our son in law, John baptized and confirmed our sweet grand daughter Karas Rae. What a special day to look forward to when you turn 8.  John gave her a beautiful blessing during the confirmation. She is a sweet little girl but has had a few challenges to face as well as her parents.  When Karas about 4 she was diagonosed with Austism.  They have their good days and bad days but on this day she was an angel. The events of the day went really smooth.  For the most part she was cooperative and she knew this day was all about her.
She couldn't wait to give her daddy a big hug after "dunking" her in that water!  "Why did you do that?" she asked.
The Carter Clan as Kira calls them outside the church in Santaquin.
Isn't she a cutie?  Kira made her baptism dress and Karas loved it, especially that she had pink matching shoes. 

Her blessing dress and a few mementos of her baby things.
We had a luncheon at the Carter house with family, ward members and anyone that has influenced Karas' life. 

Grandma and Grandpa White with Karas on her special day.  We love you Karas and are so glad you are a part of our family.  You bring smiles to everyone you come in contact with.  It's great to be eight!
