She is Loved

Because we wanted to make it easier for family to come, we went ahead and did the unthinkable--we scheduled a private baptism. I did not know this was discouraged and, boy, did I have to jump through some hoops to make it happen.

We planned her baptism to coincide with Utah's fall break so the Utahan's could stay longer.

We had nine from southern Utah, one from northern Utah, three from southern Nevada, three from Maine and five from down the street!

The family:

The priesthood:
The cousins and siblings:
The grandparents:
The proud parents:
The sister but not the brother who was unwilling:
Chloe was baptised and confirmed by her dad. Uncle's Zach and Ben gave the talks, Meme and Grandma gave the prayers.
Since we conveniently planned this baptism the same day as stake conference we had to schedule it in the morning. So we served crepes afterward. Chloe's favorite.
We didn't want to throw a party but we did allow her to have the traditional pinata:
And here is the lovely cake that Rachel was supposed to make but I went ahead and gave it a try. And failed:
She was starting to feel sick by this time and was not entertained by the trick candles.

My question is, did you cry? Weird to have a kid old enough to be baptized, huh?
