Birthday, Baptism and the 4th of July!

Jenna was baptized by her dad on the 4th of July. There isn't a better day for the little firecracker to be baptized. What a great day we had. Friends and family came to support our Jenna. It is hard to believe that she is the last one to be baptized in our family. I finished her quilt top just in time. It is a tradition in our family that when you are baptized mom makes you a comforter to remind you of the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Jenna's birthday was on June 12th while we were at summer games in Cedar City. She was a little disappointed that we weren't going to be home for her birthday. But we made the best of it. On her actual birthday we were able to drive down to my parents in Ivins. Grandma and Grandpa had pizza and a birthday cake waiting for us. Then Jenna and I were able to go and see the musical Annie at Tuacahn. It was a blast.

Before we left for Summer Games, we where able to have a swim party for Jenna. It was a lot of fun. We had pizza, soda, Cheetos and cupcakes (all the things that are good for you).

We are so lucky to have Jenna in our family and we love her so much!

When I moved to Cache Valley Jenna was only a few months old. I can't believe how long it's been. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the quilt you made Jenna! So adorable! I am going to do the quilt thing when my kids turn 8 too. That means I better start working on Ty's- it's only 4 1/2 years away and it takes me forever! I'm sorry we missed the baptism Jill. I'm glad it went so well!

You have been sooooooo busy. No wonder I have not talked with you this summer. Thanks for the update. I'm glad you and your family get to do so many fun activities together. You have a good balance of spiritual and fun!
