Hannah's Baptism






















Hannah's baptism was a very special day. Most of our family attended along with a few ward members. She was able to wear my baptismal dress that I wore when I was baptized. That is a hugh family tradition that we have. Her dad baptized her and joked about holding her under for 10 minutes. Caroline was able to play the piano and Melanie was the chorister. Gregg gave the talk on baptism and I did the talk on the Holy Ghost. It was quite memorable.

That is so special to have most of her siblings involved. Hayley wore my baptism dress too and now I am saving it for Alison. She looks so beautiful. I can't believe she is that old already. She was just a baby when we moved to Fayetteville.

HOw special to share your dress with your daughters! I wish I had something like that to pass on. I cant believe that she is old enough to get baptized! She will always be this little tiny girl that I left behind 5 years ago! Congratulations!

What a special day & a beautiful girl! I love the dress tradition too. Too bad I was baptized in a very ugly 1970's jumpsuit. Oh but my hair was styling before I hit the water!

What a neat tradition with the dress. Just another touch to make the day that much more special for you all.

By the way, your mom, does she ever not look absolutely beautiful and radiant? She's just the same in that picture as how I remember her nearly 20 years ago now. Post her formula for that. I could seriously use a hand. :)

Yeah, Hannah! I think this is the first one we've missed for your girls....wish we could've been there. You always make your kids' baptisms such special occasions, along with your mom's help.
