Eli was baptised on September 12th 2009. It was an exciting day full of hurry and fun! In the morning (at about 2 a.m.) I realized I didn't ever get Eli pictures in his suit for his big day...I know bad mom. Anyway I told myself there isn't really anything I can do about that RIGHT NOW go back to sleep. So at about 8:00 a.m. I got Eli in his new suit (courtesy of Grandma Crockett) and we went over to Freestone park and took a few pictures.
Eli wanted a running shot!
Eli didn't want to take to many. After we were done taking pictures we were off to Walgreen's were we picked 2 photos out and printed off a couple of 8X10 prints to have on display! When we got home we cleaned and cleaned and cleaned so when the whole family came over for a luncheon we (I) wouldn't be embarrassed. After cleaning I ran to the store bought some drinks and chips picked up two three foot subs from Subway and got the pictures and came home. That was all before I showered and was ready when Family started showing up at 11:00 a.m. Impressed...I didn't think so other people wouldn't be such procrastinators. Anyway after the luncheon we headed over to the Stake Center and did the whole baptism thing. What an spiritual experience. Eli was very focused and wanted to take it all in. He looked sooo handsome in his suit and in this baptism clothes. I am so proud of him for making this choice to get baptised.
He is such a wonderful kid and I just love him dearly! After the baptism, Koe invited everyone over to go swimming...it was like 105 degrees that day. Anyway I sent Justin and the kids up to swim while I "played" with a Jeannette and Amy who came all the way from Globe to surprise me (and Eli)! It was so fun! Thank you to all who came to support Eli and for all your love you show my family!
