Railey's Baptism

Railey was baptized this last Saturday. It was a great day. She has been excited to be baptized for a long time. She was baptized in the church in Leamington about a 10 minute drive away because our church here in Oak City does not have a font. The baptism was at 11:00. Grandpa (Jerry) said the opening prayer, I gave a spotlight, Grandma (Kaye) gave a talk and Rob baptized and confirmed her. Her primary teacher (John Kapler) said the closing prayer. She chose the songs "When Jesus Christ was baptized" and "When I am baptized" for her music. It was simple yet very nice. Afterwards we went back to our house and had a dinner (menu of Railey's choice.) Marinaded grilled chicken, dutch oven potatoes, corn on the cob and rolls. It was yummy. Railey couldn't wait to eat "dutch" potatoes. That is what she calls them. And we have Grandpa to thank for cooking them for us. For dessert there was apple pie and ice cream or ice cream cones. It was great day. In sacrament meeting on Sunday she was called up on the stand and they presented her with her certificate and a triple combination. Then in primary they did a spotlight on her. She felt pretty special. She looked so pretty in her white dress and the white flower Grandma gave her in her hair. It's hard to see her grow up so fast but its wonderful to see her make good choices. We are so proud of her and love her so much.
