Isaac's Baptism

  Your father and I are so proud of you and your decision to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You are eight year's old and we can't believe that you are already old enough to be baptized. It felt surreal that we had a son old enough to be getting baptized but, were very excited at your decision to become a member of the church. 
Your father was happy to be able to baptize you. It was so fun to see how excited you were to get dressed in your all-white clothing. You listened to all the talks given by your grandmother's at your baptism and were very attentive. You even gave your classic thumbs-up when you liked the talks. It was also neat that Abbie and Kaden were willing to give the opening and closing prayers and were excited to be a part of your baptism. They look up to you so much and we are so grateful for the example you set for your younger brother and sister.
After being baptized your father asked you how you felt. You answered "cold right now" (being all wet). He then asked you how you felt inside. You answered "125 degrees". We hope you always remember that feeling which is the Holy Ghost testifying that what you were doing what your Heavenly Father asked you to do.

After the baptism we went back to our house and had banana split sundae's with every different kind of topping you can want. Yummy! 

Everyone visiting and eating their banana splits!

Isaac, we are so proud of you! You light up our lives and bring such joy to our home. We love how inquisitive you are and all the questions you come up with. You have asked a lot of questions about everything that would happen at your baptism and we hope we can always be there to guide and help you as you grow and mature. We loved talking to you after everyone went home about how you felt that day. It is a joy to see how much Heavenly Father loves you and we love you too.

Cassy Final
