Big Sister's Baptism

We are so proud that Big Sister decided to be baptized a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Jan 5, 2013. It was a happy day for her dad and I. She was surrounded by lots of family and friends to make the day special for her. Her dad baptized and confirmed her. After the baptism we came back to our apartment complex and had an after-party in the clubhouse. It worked out really well! I made 3 soups (creamy potato, tomato basil, and a white bean chili). They were all really yummy! Then we had salad, rolls and tons of cookies! I didn't get any pictures of the food, bummer... Her cousins from Arizona came, all her grandparents, a great grandparent, her friend Caroline with her mom, her friend Marion with her mom, and lots of friends from the ward. I think overall we had 65 people there. A lot of people love Big Sister!

It was such a special day and we are glad that we could spend it with so many people.
