baptism


over thanksgiving weekend we baptized a. he was baptized in b's parents ward. my parents came all the way from maryland to help support a in his decision to be baptized. they were such a great help with all the food preparations. i couldn't have done it without them. thank you so much! 2 of my brothers were also in attendance with their wives and families. all of b's siblings were there with their families as well as 2 cousins and 2 great grandmas. a also invited some close friends who were able to come and we so appreciate their support and miss them so much since we've moved. k, m, and tatianna sang a beautiful musical number while a and b were changing. they brought such a sweet spirit. thanks girls! what a great day to have a baptism and thanks to all our friends who came. you made it even more special for a.






after the baptism it was back to my 'mil's house for food. my mom bought 3 hams, rolls, grapes, bite size brownies and aussi cakes, drinks, and supplied the paper products. she gets the amazing mom award! thank you so much. the ham was 'divine', that's for you lynette, and the brownies...what can i say...heavenly! everything was so yummy! then it was downstairs to watch the BYU/UofU game! love it. i actually didn't start watching till the 2nd half...there were no touchdowns and the score was LOW! i couldn't believe it. b nearly had a heart attack waiting for BYU to score their touchdown of the entire game and then running a safety to give them the lead. only to have the U miss some key passes and as the time ran out...BYU won. HURRAY! 2 years in a row. love it.

anyway...what a perfect ending to a great day.

Congrats to Adam. I can't believe how big these kids are getting and how old that makes us! Can't wait to get the Christmas card!

Adam looks so grown up! I love watching little kids get baptized. Glad you guys had so much family and friend support. I am very impressed that you got your cards out! I am just thinking if I will even do them this year. Maybe I will send valentine cards out instead of Christmas.
