the pictures

Well, we did it. We made it through! Our first baptism went off without a hitch! Because we chose to hold it on a week night, no one could make it up to turn the font on, because they were all still at work. So once we got up there, we turned it on. While we sat and waited, Ben and Ivan sat in the van and watched a movie!

People started coming and we didn't want to wait too long before we started. There were a couple of talks and then we went out. By this time it was POURING down rain. Although the font wasn't quite full, Ben was able to do it. Because the water was pretty shallow, she stuck her foot out on the way back up. So one more time around and they got it.

I helped her get dressed and then we went back in. Ben performed her confirmation, ended with cookies and juice...and that was that. Easy, relaxed. Just the way we like it!

Harmony was so happy and when she was getting changed, she told me, " Mom I know this is so important, but I am happy because Daddy was able to do it." "nough said.

It was a good day. A very good day. One I will remember for a looong time!
