It's Great To Be Eight

On Saturday Macy become an official member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She was giddy with excitement to be baptized.


I got a little verklempt watching Bill baptize my baby girl in the same font that I was baptized in 21 years ago. (BTW, he is wearing socks. He doesn't have albino feet.)


It was so awesome that Macy got to be baptized with two of her friends. These three are in the same church class and the same class at school.

Chandler, Kenzie, and Macy

It was such a special day made even more special by the friends and family who came to support Macy. Thank you all!

It was a great day, wasn't it? Macy was so sweet, they all were. I was so impressed with the Stake and how smoothly the night went, overall. We love that we got to be a part of your night, as well as you a part of ours. :-)

I wasn't really with it enough to get a picture on Saturday, so I'm glad that you got one of all 3 of them. Would you please email it to me. It was such a nice baptism.

It was really nice...and a lot more personal than I remember my own Stake baptism. I will have to get you the cute pictures I took of her outside with the cousins. Beautiful weather too!
