Dylan turned 8 on January 20th and was baptized with much celebration on February 19th. How special it was to be surrounded by family and friends - many who traveled crazy far!!
Dylan was so excited to be baptized and had been talking about this day for a long time.
My favorite thing he said was to his Grandma Motley as they were writing down some memories of his baptism day in his new journal. When asked to describe what it felt like to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, he said "it felt tingly in my body."
Dad also had to put him under the water twice because he forgot to say "amen" the first time.
We were thrilled to have Grandma and Grandpa Burnett come from Seattle.
Motley's and Burnett's after the baptism. I love our crazy family!!
And in case you were wondering how we fit everyone in our house for lunch when the weather was rainy and crummy. Thanks to Peg's fab idea, we created a kid/man cave where everyone could eat.
Things we love about Dylan at 8:
How he wakes up happy every morning
His caring heart and how looks out for younger friends and cousins
His awesome baseball and football skills
How he's such a great reader even though he doesn't really like it yet
How he tries so hard to do what's right
Such a good sport and has such a good attitude
He's agreeable and helpful
How free he is with compliments
How he makes everything fun
How lucky we are that Dylan is ours!! We love you, Dyl. Congratulations on your decision to be baptized!
