Jett's baptism



Jett was baptized on August 3rd in Utah while we were on vacation. I (selfishly) wanted to wait and do it when we were on vacation so that we could share it with our family. Jett is the oldest grandchild on both sides so it was the first baptism in the family. It was pretty incredible because all of my family (minus little brother who was on honeymoon)and all of Jake's family traveled to share the day with us.

The baptism was great and one of the best parts was when Jake was baptizing Jett and Luke yelled out "Don't drown him Dad!"
Jake's aunt Kay was so great and was able to arrange us having the baptism at her church building and afterwards we went to a really nice pavillion- park area right behind the church. Everyone brought treats to share and we had a great time. All of Jett's cousins were there and it was fun to see them running around having such a good time. It was a really special day and everything went great! Despite the spirituality of it all I couldn't help but think Am I really old enough to have a child getting baptized?!?

Carolyn,
You have such a cute family. I miss your mom and dad too! I wish I could have come up for David's wedding. We have moved to Ft. Worth. We are in an apartment until our home is ready and I'm about to beat my kids. All that great stuff they told us in YW about being a mom is NOT all that it's cracked up to be. I'm glad to hear that you let your kids throw tantrums....me too! I heard you're the "bishops wife" now!! Are you hanging in there....do you ever see him anymore? Hopefully I'll be able to blog more as things settle down. I hope you are doing well. I really want to see you sometime. Brian owes me big time since I was the single mom for over 4 months and now he's on a fishing trip in Alaska....that would be why I'm about to beat the kids. Well- better run. Keep in touch.
