Kylee's Baptism

Our Sweet Kylee was baptized on Saturday. Both James and I agreed it was one of the best days of our lives. Right up there with her birth! What an amazing thing to see your child enter into the water and to hear those special words as they make promises and have their wrongs washed away.
Kylee was so nervous about the water being cold, but luckily it was warm! We had lots of family and friends there. Grandma Hansen and Grandma Later both gave wonderful talks and then Kylee and I sang "When I am baptized" together.

After the baptism we went to my Grandparents house and had a BBQ with lots of yummy food and dessert.

I am so privileged to be Kylee's mom. From the second she was born she has had a maturity and wisdom far beyond her years. She has taught James and I so much about patience, forgiveness and love. I can't wait for many more years of it! We love you Kylee!
