Addy's Baptism

Addy got baptized On Saturday the 6th. It was a fantastic weekend. Most of my side of the fam showed up on Friday. We had a much needed Girls Night Out! Saturday was Addy's big day. We had all our family here! We felt so loved and know that Addy felt it as well. It meant so much that our family took the time to come. It's not often the family all gets together down south, due to the fact that the majority live up north, so it makes it even that more special that they all came. We love our family and are so blessed to have them in our lives!!

Addy was baptized by her Dad! Her witnesses were her Grandpas. How lucky and grateful I feel that Bryan is a worthy Priesthood holder. My heart was so full of emotions at that moment. I was so happy and proud of both of them. I was overcome with the spirit, grateful and felt just plain blessed! Addy was also confirmed that same night by her Dad. She had her Grandpa's, Grandpa Morris, Uncle Jon, Uncle Bubba, Bry's Uncles Robert and Bruce, Thayne and of course Jon all stand in the circle. It was a beautiful blessing.
I have a hard time finding the words to truly express how I feel. I am so proud of Addy and her decision to get baptized. I feel so fortunate to have the gospel in my life. I know that Addy is on a great path and I am so excited to watch her grow, and feel lucky to be apart of it!
