"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Will's Baptism Day

What a special day this was for our family.  November 1, 2014- Will's baptism day!  He was nervous and excited for the big day, and Dallas and I were so proud of him.  The room was full to the brim with family and friends- they kept having to bring in more chairs.  There was so much love and support for Will, and we were so thankful.  Dallas both baptized and confirmed Will.  How grateful I am to have such a worthy priesthood holder as a husband and father.

Will's favorite cousin, James Robinson, prepared a talk for baptism.  I could see him as a future missionary!  James is a great example to Will, so it meant a lot that he was willing to speak.   

Will shared his special day with his best buddy, Beckham.  He has the greatest group of friends here!  His other buddies Julian, Tobin and Luke were there to support them.  These boys!  They know what is right, they are fearless leaders, and they choose the right together.  Pictured below are Will, Beckham Carter, and Julian and Tobin Thomas.

We all felt the spirit through testimonies and music.  When we sang "Families Can Be Together Forever" at the close of the meeting, Dallas, Will and I were all crying.  We talk all the time about how the thing we want more than anything is to be a family forever.  Will took the first step yesterday as he chose to follow our Savior, Jesus Christ, into the waters of baptism.  We are so proud, and feel so blessed as a family.
