Another Member in Our Family!

I'm so happy! Last Saturday Samantha was baptized and given the gift of the Holy Ghost. :)
Everything went really well, and luckily for her, the water in the font was warm. Both of her Grandmas were able to give talks for her program because she was the only kid in our ward getting baptized for the day. It was nice!

Our bishop conducted and he also shared this spotlight about Samantha that she and I filled out that morning:

I was baptized on October 10, 2009.
Favorite food: meat and philly steak sandwiches
Favorite color: all the colors
Favorite place to go: Yellowstone and West Yellowstone
Favorite book: Horses & Ponies
Favorite primary song: Scripture Power and When I am Baptized
Favorite scripture story: Prince of Egypt
Favorite vacation: California
Favorite things to do: play barbies, My Little Pony, Polly Pockets, go swimming, vacations, learn

Some things my parents think are especially great about me:
strong testimony, always gives it her all, strong willed, loves to learn, outgoing, happy

Here is Samantha with the priesthood bearers who stood in the circle to assist in her confirmation.

Just Jeremy and I with Samantha.

I'm so grateful for the blessing we have of having another baptized member of the church in our home and for the spirit it brings into our home. I love Samantha very much and can't imagine my life without her. She is a wonderful part of our family!

Wow--that's quite a group!! Guess that's what happens when you have a big family. What a blessed little girl to have so many people who love her, and a family who teaches her the Gospel. (Beautiful dress, too!) Congratulations to Samantha--I'm glad everything went well.
