oh how I love her...

It really seems like 2 days ago she was born and yesterday she was starting school, but here we are at her basptism. I am so proud of her for making the decision to be baptised. August 1st was a beautiful and emotional day. What a testimony builder to have your children baptised. I was reminded how very blessed I am to have a worthy Priesthood holder for a husband, and how important the Priesthood is. I truly love the gospel and know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who knows us and wants us to return to him. I love the organization of the church, and know that because of it I am a better person and would flounder without it. I love my ward family and their support and love that I feel every week! What a blessing to our family! I love my children and husband so much and am so grateful for the Plan of Salvation and the opportunity to be a forever family! Thank you, Hannah, for being such a beautiful and wonderful daughter! I know that if you use the gift of the Holy Ghost that you received on Saturday, that you will remain strong and happy. I love you sweetie!









Here is the baptism announcement I made. I wasn't sure I was going to make them, but decided after some thought that it would be a good way to help her remember this special time. I think our family appreciated them as well...


Here is my wonderful little family on her big day.

Congratulations! What a beautiful family you have. Thank you for the comment, I don't remember the nurses name in recovery, but she had dark brown hair, about shoulder length. I think I would remember her name if I heard it. Its good to hear from you again!
