On Saturday December 8th Michelle was baptized. She was so cute and excited. We have been talking about this day all year and now it finally happened. She practiced with dad before we went to the church. When we got the the stake center we got her dressed in the lovely jump suit Grandma Platt made for her. Then took some pictures and then went in for the talks on Baptism and the Holy Ghost! After the talks were all done we were dismissed to go into the baptismal room. We watched two friends get baptized then it was our turn! The practicing payed off because she did great and so did Dad! When she got out of the water she was freezing and couldn't stop shivering from being so cold. I think she was a little excited to! We got her in her beautiful dress that Grandma Crockett bought for her, and did her hair and when we got to the confirmation room everybody was talking to her and telling her congratulations and she is the cleanest one in the room and things like that. So we got to the front and the bishop called her up there and Dad confirmed her a member of the church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. After she was all done she started crying and we didn't know why so dad asked and she said "I'm just so happy". We think maybe she felt that Heavenly Father was there telling her how well pleased he was with her! She was great that day and I hope she will always remember that wonderful feeling she had when she felt the Holy Ghost so strongly!
