Anya's baptism

Anya turned 8 this year and was baptized. She chose to have her Step Grandfather, Randy, baptize her. So Grandma and Randy and Natalie flew out from Utah for the weekend. Grams and Grumps Florian came down with Auntie Emmy for the day to be there too. It was really great to have so much family there. All the pictures are on my Moms camera so hopefully I'll get copies of them someday. But here are the professional ones we had done, by Jessica Cooper Photography.

My sweet girl on your baptism day I want you to know how proud I am of you. I know that sometimes it is hard for you to like church but you always know what is right and what is wrong. I love that you know if you ever need anything that all you have to do is pray and Heavenly Father will make it all better. You are such a good example to your brother, sister, Father and me. You bring our family so much joy and you are so much fun to have in our family and you are the biggest help ever! I love you so much and am so glad that Heavenly Father let your sweet self be in our family. I know you are making a good decision and that the Lord will bless you in your life if you take the time to look. I know that our church has the fullness of the gospel and that if you live it to the best that you can our family will be together forever and you will always live a good, full life. Study the scriptures that Grandma Webster gave you. If you do Jesus will become your friend and you will learn to rely on him and you will never feel alone or VERY sad. I love you more than you will ever know and am so proud of the little lady you are turning into.

Leah those pictures are just darling. I can't believe how grown up she is. Time passes so swiftly. I feel like it was just yesterday that you got baptized! Really that could be you swinging in that tree. Wow. xoxo
