Jenna's baptism!

While we were up for Thanksgiving Jenna got baptized.  I was so glad that it worked out that way so we could all be there. She is darling.  David just loves her.  Everyone was there except Andy who lives in Texas now.  Even Sloan was able to be in the confirmation circle since he is now an Elder.  It was a really neat thing to see.  Our family has been blessed with strong testimonies of the church.  I think it's because we all got in trouble when we were younger and learned the hard way so that we didn't have to do it when we were older.  Also because of our amazing parents who gave us tough love and taught us to work hard and how to be responsible for our own actions. The best lessons and parents ever.

The baptism was at 9am so afterwards we went back to Steve and Juanelle's for Breakfast.  Here is ANDY after he had lost 170 pounds!  That huge baggy suit doesn't do him justice but it is a great prop for his "Down By The River" by Chris Farley.  He is doing an amazing job and we are so proud of him.  He sent a picture the other day of him after he had run a mile without stopping.  That is my goal in life!  I don't think I have EVER done that.  Even in High School.  I was a sprinter on the track team and when it came time to do the timed mile for your grade at the end of the year I could do 1 lap without stopping then it turned into walk the curve and run the straight ways.  This is a great picture of Ashley's belly!

All our best girls.  Except Emily and Jenna were off playing.

 JoEllen, Grandma and Juanelle setting up.  They are such amazing cooks. 

This sign is just vinyl lettering on the wall with an old window hanging in front of it.  I LOVE IT!  It is so darling.  And speaking of darling...well here's a picture of the boys anyway.

Here is Sloan with his friend Shawnee.  It was a great day.  One for the record books for sure.
