Joseph's Birthday and Baptism

Joseph is 8!So many people came to share Joseph's birthday and baptism with him. Grandma and Grandpa Anderson came with Jordan and Alexis a couple of days before the baptism to play!We had a picnic at the parkErica never let Grandma goThen it was time for the big day! Dad and Joseph are ready to go.All our friendsMelinda and Christian and family came from the East side to join usAnd Grandma and Grandpa Jolley came with Jenni, Michael and Harlow!He did it!I was so focused and anxious about preparing Joseph to have a spiritual experience, I wasn't prepared for the powerful experience it would be for me. The Spirit was incredibly strong, watching Darren baptize our son and confirm him a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. How grateful I am to have made the same decision when I was young that has brought me so much peace and happiness. I'm so thankful for the blessing of the Priesthood on the earth today! I'm so proud of Joseph and the boy he's becoming.
