Eva's Baptism

Since Eva was over the age of 8 she had to be baptized before we could have her sealed to us. So...Eva was baptized on Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 by her dad. It actually turned out beautiful for having thrown it together last minute. Since she was over the age of 9 she was considered a convert and we had to go through the missionaries to do her baptism. After a little convincing, the missionaries decided to give her the short version of the lessons and she was interviewed by the district leader and was cleared for baptism. Eva is sweet young lady and I wouldn't know what to do without her. She was SO excited to get baptized!!! She had Aunt Jami give the talk on Baptism, Carly sang a special number, and Aunt Melanie gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. We appreciate those family and friends who came to support her, especially at such short notice!!!


So glad we have this girl!!

I want you to tell Eva how she made my little girl Addi's whole reunion. I was so impressed with her Tiffani. I dont know if you saw the whole scene but Justin took a sick one home when the reaffling was going on, and took the wallets so I had no cash to buy raffle tickets and Addison was literally freaking out, and she just lost it when she heard it was over. She really wanted one of the dolls. Your sweet Eva gave her the one she won. Addi was so happy. So tell her thanks for being such a sweet girl. And Tiff you gotta be a great mom for her to be so giving so young. And just so you know Addi still carries it with her, and sleeps with it. So, it really meant A LOT!
