So this was Makenzie's most anticipated birthday ever because she knew it meant she can finally get baptized! For her birthday, she brought muffins to school for her classmates. She also got to pick where she wanted to go for dinner. She chose Golden Corral. She was so funny, she called it a "food paradise." She didn't eat much though for being so excited about it! The following day her Grandma drove to Yuma for a visit, Kenzie had a birthday party with her friends. Samantha, Brynn, Remi, Emily, Meagan, and Riley, came over in their pajamas and ate pizza, played Gestures, and a getting to know you game. They then ate popcorn and watched the Tinkerbell movie. Then of course we had cake and ice cream to top off the night before the girls parents picked them up. She was super excited and had a great time. Her only bummer of the day was her very best friend Kendalyn couldn't come because she was very sick. So after her friends went home, we took Kendalyn and her sisters a goodie bags, and a cake. Her birthday was February 3rd, her "Child of Record" baptism was today, February 19th, 2011. Her mom and uncle Sam came down for the day. Aunt Brigette came with her two children. She had several friends and families at the church to witness her special day. She was so excited to be baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. It was a beautiful day, it started out very rainy and yucky, but by the time her baptism rolled around, the sun had come out, and it was a gorgeous day. After her baptism, we had donut holes and brownies outside and then we went to Grandma Devey's house for an amazing dinner, they smoked a turkey, pork loin, and a brisket, yum-os! What a great day it has been. The only downfall was her poor brother was so very sick, he had a 104 degree fever and was miserable. Right after the baptism, he went home to rest and we brought a plate home for him and Jeremy from the dinner. Poor little buddy, Jeremy just got over a three day sickness himself!

I have been scrolling down to visit other blogger sites and today I was taken to two LDS blogs. How fun is that, for I too am LDS. Congratulations on your daughter's baptism. That is a wonderful event. Baptisms are some of my favorite meetings to attend. You are doing a good job as parents. Blessings to your family.

It was so good to see you in Yuma and catch up!! I know that my brother and his wife feel grateful to you for the help and advice you've giving them.
