Brigham's Baptism

The big day finally came! Brigham has been impatiently waiting for this day for a YEAR and it was well worth the wait.  He was so happy and smiley and sweet (which is normal) and also so excited he hardly could sit still in his chair.  
It's a wonderful thing to watch Tyler perform ordinances with our kids.  I wonder if they know how incredibly blessed they are?  What a joy to have faith!  Not just religion, not just a church (though we love that part), but to have belief in something bigger than themselves.  Belief in something that brings peace and hope and comfort and purpose to life.

He had a great group of people at his baptism - he had invited 20 different families from the ward and all but 1 showed up!  I was blown away.  In addition he had his grandparents from both sides and Aunt Amber's family in attendance.  We felt so loved!

With every new milestone I'm just more thankful for my family.

This is my favorite picture - it always is and I make sure that the Daddy knows I need this one.  That is a HAPPY boy.  That is complete peace and joy.  

Oh - and also brings opportunities to sneak mom's phone and take selfies in church at least once a week.  These two are the best kind of partners in crime.
