A Perfect Way to Celebrate

Yesterday was a special day—Shelby and Ashton got baptized and confirmed members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!  

We had a family luncheon afterwards—it’s been quite awhile since we’ve had the family together at our house. We missed Megan and Nate’s family, but everyone else was there, along with several extended family members, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Spending time together was the perfect way to celebrate Shelby’s and Ashton’s choice to follow Christ. The service was brief (less than an hour) and sweet. Teenagers from our ward (congregation) said the prayers, led the music, and gave the talks; I loved seeing these young people do such a great job in such important roles.

We’re proud of all our grandchildren, and were excited to honor Shelby and Ashton! (Loved the photo—cutest pic ever, right?)

How sweet! It is so encouraging to see such closeness between the cousins. It seems that somehow some of us have lost that aspect of our extended families gathering together more often to celebrate life's important events. Thanks so much for sharing. It evoked some of my most cherished childhood memories! Take gentle care...
