Dorothy's Baptism!

It was such a special day and Dorothy loved every second of it.  I spend half the week and all night getting all the food ready to make it special.  We are so proud of Dorothy and her decision to be baptized, she has set such a wonderful example for her younger siblings.  The bishop told us how smart and well prepared for baptism she was and I know it's because all of her cousins examples and the many FHE lessons we have had about baptism.  It was a very spiritual day and we feel so blessed!

All dressed in her new dress and ready for her special day!

Dressed and ready to go!

James and Dorothy ready for her baptism!

The towel with her name embroidered from the Primary!

So much family support thanks to all who came!!

The girls (James was chasing Preston down for the family picture!)

The best family picture we could get (all the others Preston was giving the camera the stink eye!)  Preston and Violet really wanted to go play with cousins and did not want to take pictures!  

Our big girl, Dorothy we are soooo proud of you!

Baptisms are the best! 8 years old is such a sweet age when the child can take responsibility and make good decisions, but is still like a little sponge and has so much to learn. What a beautiful girl Dorothy is - congratulations to her!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe Dorothy is so grown-up! Good job mom and dad...she definitely wouldn't be so prepared for her baptism without you. Miss you!

congrats Dorothy!! I can't believe she is already old enough to be baptized. Wish we could have been there.
