Anyway, Aubrey turned 8 on Friday and was baptised the following day. She was so excited and Samuel, who turns 8 in June, was just dying that it wasn't his turn. Jamie gave a sweet talk about the steps Aubrey has taken to prepare for her baptism. Aubrey enthusiastically 'helped' her. Gavin performed the actual baptism- twice- since it is baptism by immersion and Aubrey's toes peeked above the water the first time. John gave a great talk about the Holy Ghost using the boys and I to help illustrate a point.
For refreshments, Jamie decided on a Philly theme based on a craving for soft pretzels. It was a huge hit with everyone. The Tasty Cakes went so fast I'm not even sure they were really there.
The kids all had a great time together and we took the opportunity to take some family pictures.
