Crazy Eights

Now that company has returned home, I have a moment to sit down at my computer and tell you all about an important event that happened last week. Quin was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by his dad on Saturday, July 5th. It was a really wonderful day for all, but especially for Quin. He chilled out in the morning, playing video games and munching, then got himself ready in church attire...white shirt, slacks and new shoes. All dressed up with somewhere to go, we packed up and were on our way to the church. Quin chose most of the program, including his favorite songs, "Called to Serve," and "I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ." His primary teacher gave a talk and we watched a great DVD, then the baptism and confirmation. Cole and I sang "When I am Baptized" and Quin's grandpa (my dad) gave a heartfelt, touching talk on the Holy Ghost. The Primary President gave him a welcome bag with a baptism book and his Faith in God booklet. Bishop welcomed him to the ward and we were ready for treats!! Quin chose cheesecake, rice crispy treats and big, fat Costco cupcakes. Quin knows what he wants. He knew exactly which goodies he wanted. He knew he wanted to be baptized. He knows he wants to go a mission. I'm so thankful for Quin...knowing what he wants.

Getting ready for the big event...combing that long, wavy hair.

Brothers and great friends, most of the time. Quin is a good example.

My sweet, kind, soft-hearted first son. Such a big day.

Don't forget the other two munchkins and Tim, ready to baptize his boy.

Dad and boys, Ewan is behind Cole and wouldn't come out.

The deed is done and it's time for Thai Orange Chicken!

Peace. Isn't that a fitting last photo. It was so true too. Peace.
