That sounds like a really cool way to get baptized.(Now I'm sitting here trying to think of what you wish someone getting baptized...Happy Splashing?)
Tonight: I'm hoping to get the kids to bed early and then get some nookie for myself before I go to sleep early as well because...
Sat: MIL is picking me and the girls up at 6AM to drive to Iowa to go pick up the puppy. Looking foward to seeing the girls with the pup; not looking foward to 12+ hours in the car.
Sun: I suspect we'll be playing with a puppy.
What kind of puppy???

I was in Iowa once. Getting a puppy would be the only way I'd go back!

Haha, squishy... Happy Splashing, that's cute.

Stina, my only concern is the temp of the water. I'm really looking forward to the experience on the beach vs. in the church building though.

<quoted text>CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BAPTISM!!! I hope the water isn't too cold!!! Our church did one inteh gulf on Easter and they said it was FREEZING! The other person decided to wait to do it in the warmer water at the church!:D That's great news, though!!!

We are going to Disney tomorrow. Rain chances dropped from 50% to 40% and it's only going to be 72 degrees! Perfect! It probably wont' be too crowded because of the rain chances, too. It will be fun!
Hope you have a great time at Disney tomorrow! That is the type of weather we loved when we'd go to Sesame Place. Even if there was a shower, we'd just wait it out doing indoor stuff or eating a meal.

A Boston Terrier.

I think it's silly to pay $500 and drive 600+ miles for a pure-bred when there are soooo many really cute mutts at the pound, but it ain't my call.

But secretly I can't wait for some puppy breath and those little sharp teeth. <squeeee!>

That really sucks but I will still trade your snow for our rain.

BTW, it is snowing outside RIGHT now. Yesterday it was in the 60s and almost 70, today it is snowing. Really, snow ice pellets. They hurt.

Our Duluth office is closed. Coworker up there has 18 inches of new snow on her driveway.

MIL has been warning the girls all week about being deligent about putting away toys/stuffed animals. I'm sure one of them will learn the hard way to keep stuff away from the puppy, however. Hopefully it will be something that is not precious.

Jmw, don't you already have a faith? And you've already been baptized? SO is this similar to a renewal of wedding vows? ;)

My first hint with my puppy was the fact that, when I went to go see her at the rescue, she started chewing the shoe I was wearing!!!

I've been a Christian in terms of my beliefs since I was 16 but I've never been baptized. My church does beach baptisms about once a quarter and I always thought it would be cool do to that, so when this one was announced my friend L and I both decided to do it. I think most Protestant denominations believe in baptism as a teen or an adult, when it's the person's choice, as opposed to Catholics who baptize babies.

Actually, it's mostly the Baptist and more "Fundamentalist" type protestant religions that do older baptisms. LUtherans, methodists, Episocpalians, etc., all do it as infants.

Yeah, definitely more the "Preotestant-Related ". I grew up non-denominational and we do it as teens/adults. I can't remember for sure, but I may have been baptized Lutheran as a baby, but my parents switched when I was a toddler.

The Amish are among those who don't baptise infants. Baptists and the Amish are from the Anabaptist movement that came out of Germany several hundred years ago. Catholics baptize infants, and Lutheranism, Methodism, Presbyterianism, and Episocopal(ism?) of course are borne from Catholicism, so those mainstream protestant religions also baptise infants.
