Jessi turned 8 this eight year, which of course means she was able to be baptized. She looked so beautiful in her white dress. Her daddy baptized her, and her Uncle Jason confirmed her. I also have to make special mention of her dress that Uncle Jason picked out for her (since I had forgotten about getting her a dress, and all the places to get baptism dresses are in Mesa, by where he lives) he did a great job getting one that was definately her taste. She was so excited to be baptized, we are so proud of her decision.
After the baptism, we invited family and friends to our house for a birthday party and lunch. It was such fun and we want to thank everyone that was able to come and help make it such a special day. Tiffany and Annabella were in town too. It was nice to see them while they were here. (There, that ought to teach my father in law to stick his tongue out at me!!)
Tiffany and I were able to work on some family history, including doing a couple of interviews with older family members. It was so much fun. Mike agreed to babysit the kids for us one night while we went to do an interview. As you can probably tell from the picture, this is Mike's idea of babysitting!! Not really, Annabella just thought the kennel was so much fun to play in, one time spike crawled in there with her! We had so much fun visiting with Annabella and Tiffany and were especially grateful that they could be here for Jessi's baptism!
