Carter's Baptism

Carter's Baptism
June 4th 2011

I can't believe it, another daughter grown up and old enough to enter the waters of baptism. 
 I am so grateful for Carter and her choice to be baptized.  She is such a good girl, helpful and kind.  
 I am grateful to have her in my life-she always adds a little spice to everything she does. 

She was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by her Dad,
 on June 4th 2011.
He then was able to confirm her and give her the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Her friends Abigail Archibald  and Allie Tippets were baptized on the same day.   It seems like not long ago  when they were all turning 3 and having a birthday party together.  Now 5 years later they are all 8 and growing up fast. 
Carter asked her aunt Holly to give a talk on the Holy Ghost and she did such a marvelous job!  I hope Carter will remember the talk she gave and the spirit that was felt there. 
Courtlyne also sang a song (under duress) with the older sisters of the other kids.
 She did good too!

We had a great turn out of family and friends at her baptism and we followed it up with a yummy BBQ in the backyard.  Thank goodness for good weather that day! Such a blessing to be part of a wonderful family and to see my kids grow up!  I love every step of the way that we encounter together. I love you Carter and and I am so proud of you!
