Once we arrived at the church, Chad and Micah got into their whites.
Look at Micah's smile! Worth a million bucks, that there. Just because it was his baptism day didn't mean (for him) that he was going to tone down the personality. He went skipping down the hall, being his impish little self. I told him I needed a hug before he was baptized. He agreed, as long as it was out of anyone's sight.
The program was very nice. The person in charge of baptisms in our ward does a bang-up job of it. Colin played the piano: "I am a Child of God" and "When Jesus Christ Was Baptized". Then he gave a talk on baptism. After the program he said he was so nervous his leg was doing the sewing machine needle. But I never would have guessed it. He seemed so cool, calm, and collected.
Dad and Dad Barnett were the witnesses for the baptism. No floating toes or anything else for us today! Here we are after the baptism:
And the Barnetts:
Girls gotta get in some poses:
Mom and Dad with Micah:
Ella wanted desperately to take a picture. Grandpa obliged. Ha ha!
Mom and Dad and us!
Amber, Mom and Dad Barnett and us:
*Retirement (when is it not with my dad? Lol.)
*Raising children (challenges and funny aspects of parenting, children growing quickly, etc.)
*Family-friendly movies (and from their suggestions I got a good list of ones we still haven't seen!)
*The Jazz (when is it not with the Barnetts? Lol.)
*The market for selling a home (poor!)
Thank you for coming! We missed Chris, Maren and Blake and the boys, Doug and Rachel and the kids. Can't wait to see you this summer!!!
