Bennett's Baptism Day

Bennett's Baptism day was an incredible day! It was so wonderful to see my first son make covenants to follow Jesus Christ and make the decision to become a member of the church. Bennett took his baptism very seriously and tried hard to understand what it meant in his life. I am so proud of him and the young man he is becoming.

He was able to wear the same white pants all of my brothers wore when they were baptized. I'm glad my mom had saved them! We borrowed a white jumpsuit from the Stake, but there were to be so many baptisms that weekend that we got one of the last was huge--almost big enough to fit me! Bennett's cousin, Franklin, got to wear the same pants the next month for his baptism, too!

After the baptism, we had family over for glazed donuts (Bennett's favorite) and Apple Cider (hot and cold.)

The day was absolutely beautiful! Even though it was the first weekend in November, the weather was gorgeous and we got to enjoy playing outside afterward and finishing up all of our last minute yard work. Bennett was able to put his new football to good use.
