Alyssa's Baptism

Well, it happened, Alyssa was baptized! It was a great day with such a nice program. My mom spoke on baptism and Jarom's mom spoke on the Holy Ghost. All the little cousins and Alyssa sang a musical number (which I will post as soon as I can) and it all just turned out beautiful. Alyssa was really excited and promptly came home and wrote in her journal about it. She is such a sweet girl and I am so proud of her.

Aunt Mimi did Alyssa's hair so pretty. She looked so grown up!

Jarom and Alyssa getting ready for the BIG moment!

Afterwards with her cousins. I realized I never got a full shot of her in her new dress, so I thought I would put this one in so you could see how cute it was.

Jarom, Alyssa, and me. I had just poked Alyssa in the eye trying to scoot her bangs out of the way. Way to ruin the moment!

It was such a great baptism. They always bring tears to my eyes...especially when the little kid is so sweet and smart like Alyssa. What a great day!

What a darling little 8 year old! I can't even believe she is that old. I enjoyed looking through your blog today. What a beautiful family! Remember that hair-do. I may ask you some day!
