Chloe's baptism

k
The most anticipated baptism in our house, without a doubt. Chloe says she waited for this day since she was six, and I'm sure it's true. She pulled the executive secretary by the hand around the building until she found her dad so that they could set up the baptism interview. She planned the baptismal service in her 'book', and then called her aunts, uncles, and grandparents to ask them to participate as she had planned.

And yesterday she was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by her dad.

We had wonderful support from the ward: our home teachers were there, a past and present primary teacher of Chloe's, a friend from primary, as well as the primary president.

Congratulations, Chloe. We are proud of you.

Congratulations Chloe! My most favorite part of my Primary calling has been attending all the baptisms. Truly special.

Congratulations! (What a cute photo at the end!)

It was a great baptism. Just perfect. And we had a lovely time at your home afterwards. Anytime you feel like whipping up another chocolate buffet, you just let me know.

Thanks for being such a good example to my kids, Chloe.

We're so sad we couldn't be there to share the day with you, Chloe, but we'll be home soon and will be able to spend lots of time together! Hugs from all of us!

Congratulations Chloe! Everytime I think of Chloe I think of that (shy) picture of her with the button covers where she is covering her mouth. How exciting to be eight and know it.

I love that she *took charge* of the event herself. What a darling girl you have!

I didn't realize how close our girls are. Leina is getting baptized next month.
She is so darling!

We were so happy to be able to be there for Chloe's day. I love what a little planner she is -- it was a treat to be part of it.

That's so adorable that she was excited enough to grab the Executive Secretary to set the appointment!
