Noah's Baptism

Well we made it. Noah's Baptism was on Saturday and it went well. I am so proud of him. He is such a good boy. I know at times he is difficult, but who isn't. I also know that he just wants to do what is right and not make wrong choices, but the pressure he puts on himself can be overwhelming. Saturday was a great day. We woke up and got ready for the baptism. I made German Pancakes and fresh squeezed OJ for breakfast, a favorite of Noah's. Then we finished getting ready and headed to the church to set up. Brittani and Grant were wonderful to get the font going for us, so the morning ran much smoother. Everything was ready to go and ran great, the only thing I forgot was to copy a song off which we did really quick there. It was a great baptism. I was a cry baby, what can I say, I am so proud of my kids and it is hard to have another chapter close and yet so happy. I also thought that there was a wonderful spirit there, which doesn't help the water works. Scott gave Noah a blessing that was perfect for him. Afterwards we ate lunch at the church. The kids had a blast and I think Noah loved every minute of it. He is very guarded in his emotions, but I could tell that he felt good about his choice and touch by the spirit. I am so thankful for all the family that came and showed their love for him. It is a day he will never forget.

Noah's baptism was great. The spirit was strong and the hug he gave Scott after being baptised was priceless. He is such a cute boy.

I wish I could have been there. I am sure it went wonderfully. Noah is such a special boy. I love him so much and know that he really wants to choose the right. He will be a great example to many in his life!
