Emily's Baptism

I can't believe Emily and I are old enough for her to be baptized, but it is true. She was baptized on her 8th birthday on July 8, 2008.


It was a great day. One of the best of my life, certainly the best baptismal service I have ever been to. I don't really remember much of my own baptism, except that my dad was mad because I forgot to bring a second set of underpants and had to sit on a towel in the car. The spirit was so strong at Emily's. I had to baptize her three times though because she kept going all stiff. The last time I had to hold her down deep to get her toes and head to be under at the same time.

Oh, what a special baptism date! On your golden birthday! And I had to go under a few times, too, because my braids kept floating to the top of the water.

But I don't know if I'm ready to have an eight-year-old. I cry just thinking about it.

WOW! She looks so tall! I bet it was a great day for all of you! It was a neat day when Cam was baptized too. Was thinking about you guys the other day when I was in your old neighborhood. Say hi to all for us!
