"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience." Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006

The Best Day Ever

Joey's baptism day was one of those perfect days that I want to freeze in my brain forever.  I know it seems like no day can really be 100% perfect, but this one really was.  This was a different side of Joey I don't really know if I've ever seen before.  

He woke up at 6:00 a.m., as excited as if it was Christmas.  He came in and woke us up and said, "I'm getting baptized today!"  He just beamed and glowed the whole day.  He was so ready and prepared for this, and really knew what this step of baptism meant.  I'm so proud of him.

We had lots of people come to support him, and it meant a lot to us!  We have such a great family!

One neat tidbit:  Brian got to baptize Joey in the same exact font that he got baptized in many years ago!

Then we came back to the house and had a luncheon with family and friends. 

A perfect day.

The best day ever.

My mom ordered the cookies from a lady in Salt Lake. I'll have to find out her info for you.
