December 23,08 Taylor's Baptism!

It was such a special, spiritual event and evening! So nice that the whole family could be there for it, at least all of her siblings and their spouses and nephews. We would of loved to of had grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins there, but with it being such a last minute decision and the night before Christmas Eve and with the horrible winter weather that we were having, we knew that we just had to get it done. She had many friends and their parents from the ward come, which made it extra special! Don't I have such a cute family!!
Taylor was just giggling and so excited before she was baptized. She loves her family so much and was so happy to have Scott do this important ordinance. She gives the best hugs!

What a cute brother and sister at such a special time. As soon as they put on their white clothing, I was ready to cry! They were both so ready for this day!

A quick picture with Stephanie before Taylor's baptism. Stephanie wanted Taylor baptized when she turned eight and was practicing with Taylor on how you do it and was sad when we decided to wait. I thought that it was appropriate for Stephanie to give the talk on baptism because she has been wanting this for Taylor for so long and also because Stephanie loves to gives talks.

The proud parents with the soon to be newest member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints!
Taylor with two of the men in her life. Scott, thanks for being worthy to baptize Taylor and Corbin, thanks for being worthy to confirm her! I am so proud of all of you!

Scott, Taylor and Dad looking at the font, preparing Taylor for what is about to happen. Taylor already seemed to know. She was so relaxed, excited and happy! She was so ready!
