{ Ayden and Rife }

Saturday November 3rd was a very special day for our family. It was the day Ayden was baptized and Rife was blessed. It was such a wonderful day mostly because we were surrounded by friends and family that we love so dearly.

Ayden was baptized and confirmed by his father. These two are such great friends.  

Two very proud parents. 

Ayden asked his aunt Chelle to speak on baptism and his Nana to speak on the Holy Ghost. Both of their talks were incredible. It was the best baptism I have been to since my own. The Spirit was so strong.

We had over 60 people there from our family and so we were able to use the cultural hall for a nice dinner afterwards. It was a much better option than trying to fit everyone in my house!

One of my favorite memories from my baptism was the "8" cake my mom made for me. I had to follow in her footsteps. (although I remember her cake looked much better than this.  

Rife and Bapa having a special moment together. 

Ayden is blessed to have such wonderful grandparents.
Nana and Papa gave Ayden this handsome suit and a special blanket with a bear on it. 

Brammy and Bapa gave Ayden a count down (8 days of Baptism) with many gifts and also gave him some scriptures with his name on them. 

I could not have made this day happen without the help of my wonderful friends and family. The are such an inspiration to me and I thank Heavenly Father every day for the blessing they are in my life. Thank you for supporting Ayden and our family on this special day. Thank you for all the food and gifts you brought. You are all so wonderful.

It was such a special day! the tables were nicely decorated and it was great to have it in the cultural hall. With that many people it worked out great. Every one helped and it made a special dinner and a great baptism and blessing day for two sweet boys. I was happy to be there.
