He had a short interview with the bishop for which he was nervous. He even said he was too scared to ask for a piece of candy. Which is surprising because he has no problem asking for candy when I'm around. I think he was scared because he has never gone in there alone before. Right after the interview we walked outside and took pictures and then I made these invitations.
Tucker was the only one to get baptized on that day and we had a lot of family and friends from church come to support him. It was so nice that everyone came and made us both feel loved! Because he was the only one we got to pick out who gave the talks and help with the program. Tucker had his Uncles Ben and Isaac speak and his cousin James to give the closing prayer. After the baptism I was going to play a short video while Tucker got dressed into dry clothes but we couldn't get the usb to work with the tv and instead just listened to piano music. It worked out ok because Tucker and Bob changed very quickly. Even the Bishop said it must have been some sort of record. Everyone did a great job and the spirit was very strong.
Then afterwards we all ate the cookies I made. They were pretty time consuming but I really wanted to make them anyway. They have CTR cookie cutters but I didn't want to buy one, so instead I cut the top and bottom off a tunafish can and had bob use pliers to shape it into the shield.
It was a lemon cake with lime frosting. I used regular buttercream frosting but died it green and flavored it using jello powder. I once again didn't want to buy a CTR shield cake pan so I made the cake pan using tin foil, cardboard, and this tutorial.
