Gavin's Baptism

I was one proud mama on Saturday when Gavin became an official member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Not only that, but he was baptized in the same font that I was baptized in when I was 16 which made things extra special.  Jeremy's parents came into town to help make his day memorable and he was so excited.  Cameron played the piano and Mason gave one of the prayers.  It was a small circle of friends and family that  came, including my mom and Jeff, and Jeff's mom Judy, Jeremy's parents, the Caldwell family, and Sister Tondro, my dear friend who has been there for every important milestone in my kids lives.  But even though the crowd was small, the spirit was strong, and everyone in that room felt it.  I hope that Gavin remembers how he felt that day, and not just cold, because the water sure was!  I hope he felt the love that poured out from everyone there.  Congratulations Gavin, on making the very first important decision in your life and your first covenants with the Lord.
