Hayley's Baptism

Hay was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday December 1st.  It was a wonderful and memorable day.  Hay is such a sweet heart and we feel so blessed she is in our life.  She has been the sunshine in our lives that past 5 years as we have mourned and grieved over her little brother.  I will be forever grateful to her for being there for me and for her sweet and fun personality.  Her dad baptized her and joked for the weeks prior that he was going to hold her under the water for a long time. Well, he kind of did do that.  It was the longest under water baptism I've seen. The spirit was strong and on these kinds of occasions we feel Wyatt's spirit especially strong as he wouldn't miss his sisters baptism.
We had many wonderful friends and family come and support us.  We are so grateful for all of them.  It just made her day that much more special.  So grateful that she has choosen to make that first step back to her Heavenly Father and that first step to make it to the celestial kingdom where her little brother has already made it.

With her cousin that will be getting baptized in July 2014.
