the baptism

The oldest child, the oldest grandchild, the oldest great granchild....Lucy has a lot of fans. And boy, were we overwhelmed with love today. Our family and close friends all gathered together to witness and celebrate Lucy's baptism into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I didn't realize how overwhelming the feeling would be of watching your child go through these times of life.  A wave of emotions washed over me as we sang a baptismal hymn and I watched Lucy and Ty sitting there in their perfect white clothes. I can not wait for heaven, to be surrounded by all of our family and friends, with no distance or time constraints, where we can all visit and laugh together for hours and hours.

We had a wonderful dinner at our house afterwards (thanks to everyone bringing stuff!) and I marveled at how our home swelled with an abundance of happiness and joy. Thanks to everyone who came, and those who were there in spirit. It was a momentous day for the Leavitts.

 look at those beautiful girls...but oh Rodney!
 Oh, oh oh Rodney!
 I really like to throw parties, where does that come from?

 I love this picture. Look at how happy those girlies are.

*thank you Becky Kelly for all of the wonderful photos! And washing the dishes!
