What a wonderful day. First we woke up to a beautiful blanket of white snow on the ground, how appropriate for a day that Zac would be wearing all white to be baptised, and his little sweet cousin Annalyn be blessed in all white.
I can not express enuf how grateful I am for all the wonderful love and support we had from so many people. The ward was truly amazing to have everything perfect. We had SO many wonderful family come to be there on the special day. There was over 75 people there to support Zac and Annalyn.
Before Zac went to be baptised, I had him stand up and look around the room, I told him to look around at all the people that were there, to know they are all so proud of the choice he made to be baptised and they all love him very much.
Zacasked Uncle Scott to give a talk on the girt of the Holy ghost. He did wonderful and it really meant a lot to Zac. Then Zac and LOTS of his little cousins and some friends from the ward sang I am a Child of God. It was perfect.
I felt the spirit so Strong, I know Zac made the right decision. I know my mom was there on that special day, and I know many people felt her there, and I'm grateful for that.
After the baptism I asked Zac how he felt, I just loved his answer! With the biggest smile ever he said... " I feel really really good mom It's like I feel bigger, like lots bigger, and my heart wont stop beatin' really fast and hard," all I could do is tell him to take in that feeling and don't ever forget it, that it's the Lord telling him how proud he is of him. And I pray he will never forget that amazing feeling.
I know I am writing a TUN... but I just have one more thing. After the Baptism and Blessing, we had everyone come to have sandwiches. It was also wonderful. It was so nice having all the Nelsons and Briscoes and Mayfields and Steadmans there. The kids all had so much fun, and everyone I think really enjoyed themselves visiting... the only thing that would have made the day better was to have the Phippins here, we really missed them that day.
Thanks everyone so much for all the love and support.
Miley has been such a little goof ball lately,she is so dang fun... I sear when kids hit 2 they grow up so fast.She decided about 2 weeks before her birthday she wanted to be potty trained. I was NOT excited to do it, well... I didn't have to. She did it on her own!
I SO NEEDED THAT!!!!!!
She has been such an easy little girl, when it was time to put her in her big girl bed, she went with no problems. There's so many things she does bacause she wants to be just like Zac and Hannah... BUT she wants to be like Gray in some ways too... like she wanted to have a bottle FOREVER!!! but when she decided about a month ago she didn't want one, she hasn't had one since. She is truely a joy!
This is Grady with his little cousins, Stetson & Nelson
They will all be such good little buddies some day. Grady and Nelson already play together, and tackle each other... OK mainly Nelson tackling Gray, but they are so cute together.
