Nicholas gets baptized, August 2, 2008

What a special day for Nicholas! Our ward was scheduled for 2pm at the Cedar Hills West Stake Center. Nicholas was very excited and happy! Eric gave a talk on baptism and I was given the opportunity to share my testimony. It was a neat day for the whole family and now Ana says that one day she's going to be baptized too and then proceeds to show us how it's done. : ) Many cousins, aunts and uncles, and Grandma and Grandpa Halliday were here to support Nicholas. At Nicholas' request, the cousins and friends in attendance sang "Baptism" before Nicholas was confirmed. It was so neat and touching to see all these young kids up there singing, even Ana was up there and singing! We went home to our house after wards and had an early dinner with all the company. It was a great day for all of us, but especially for Nicholas.

Julia, (Diann's boys: Jakob, Joshua), Nicholas,
