Haley's Baptism Day

Haley was baptized earlier this month (on the 5th) as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and it was a great day for our family:)  We are excited for this decision she made to be baptized.  She shared a baptism with 2 other boys from the other ward.  Grandma Hatter gave a talk about baptism.  She was baptized and confirmed a member by her dad.  As I was helping her get changed into dry clothes after she was baptized, I asked her how she felt.  She had this BIG smile on her face and she said, "I feel AWESOME."  I am so glad she enjoyed her special day and was able to feel the Holy Ghost. 
My sweet (and sassy) 8 year old.  I just LOVE her freckles.

We had some food at our house after the baptism.  I had to include this picture of her cake.  I ordered it from Costco and told them it was for my daughter's baptism.  They asked if I wanted a cross on it and I specifically said "no" but then when I went to pick it up, it had a big cross on it.  I was in a hurry because we were on our way to the airport to pick up my parents so I wasn't going to make a big fuss and wait for a new cake.  We tried to scrape it off but no such luck.  Oh well, now I just giggle when I see a picture of it:)
