Joshie's Baptism
I can't believe that my oldest is 8!  Where did the time go?  He has been so excited for this day for months and could hardly wait.  While me on the other had thought that it went by too fast.  It was a wonderful day!  My Wonderful parents and by Gorgeous sister drove the 11 hours all the way up from California just for the 3 day weekend to be here.  Joshie's Uncle Marlin also came for his big day.  Joshie got to share his special day with a good friend of his from his primary class, Taj.  It was fun to see both boys so excited that they were glowing.  Both boys were baptized and confirmed by their Dads.  Amber gave the talk on Baptism and had the Dads dot them with blue paint to show the effects of sin on our souls and then gave them a wipe to show how baptism cleanses our souls.  It was a really cute idea!  Grandpa Fitzgerald gave the talk on the Holy Ghost and bore his testimony to the boys.  The Spirit was so thick in that room and I'm sure the boys were able to recognize it as well.  I pray that they will always remember that feeling as they look back on the Wonderful day of their Baptism.  Thank you to the friends and family that were able to come support these boys and for those that sent their love and support as well.  Thanks!!!!
Grandma and Grandpa Fitzgerald with 2 of the 4 kids and all their Grandchildren!
