Bella's Baptism Day

These are a few pictures from the slideshow I put together for the baptism. It was played to the inspiring song, If the Savior Stood Beside Me, by Sally DeFord.

These are the pictures of sweet little Bella that were included in the slideshow. I love this girl. And she truly does try to live as though the Savior were standing by, watching over her.

We had refreshments after the baptism with lots of friends and family! Above, Uncle Tyler is surrounded by most of the kids there.
So proud of this girlie!

Playing with Nana & Bapa

We are so glad Nana, Bapa & Eden were able to come visit for Bella's baptism. We are even more glad they came a couple days early so we could play! Oh, and super, super grateful for all of Nana's help making refreshments, keeping my kitchen clean, and feeding little chitlins. Couldn't have done the weekend without her!

My Choice

The last couple days have been rough. But in spite of it all, today, I choose joy. I choose peace. I choose belief. I choose to focus on the good: on my children, on my husband, on my amazing and numerous blessings of which they are a humungous part. I choose calm. I choose to laugh, and mean it. Not being happy is kind of rotten. OK, a lot rotten. But I am so grateful that I have a choice. And my choice is one of gladness. Come what may.
