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

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.

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.
PLus, hopefully it won't be too crowded!!!

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.

The Protestatnt churches we looked at baptise infants. As a teen the chikd is confirmed menaing she makes a profession of faith which is a personal choice.

Anabaptists:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anabaptist

"The name Anabaptist is derived from the Greek term anabaptista, or "one who baptizes over again." This name was given them by their enemies in reference to the practice of "re-baptizing" converts who "already had been baptized" (or sprinkled) as infants.[5] Anabaptists required that baptismal candidates be able to make their own confessions of faith and so rejected baptism of infants."

***

However, I got my info in previous posts from college religion courses, especially the class I took on the Amish (fascinating stuff).
