It is great to be 8....

Darren and Cody before the Baptism...
A few of our kids before Church...And Cody in his Sunday best, He looks so grown up...
It is great to be 8 ! Cody could not wait to be 8 years old. He would finally get to go to Scouts and he would get Baptized as a member of our Church and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost...

We asked Cody who he would like to Baptize him and perform the Conformation? He spoke right up and to our surprise it was not a family member but the 2nd Counselor. Darren.

This man is an amazing man. He is a wonderful person and a friend to all, he never looks down his nose at anyone and he has the funnest sense of humor so Dusty and I could see why Cody would want him to preform these rights for him.
Not only that but Darren lets Cody come to all of the young men activities with our older boys even if Cody is not old enough to go...I think Darren just likes Cody to be on his team when they have gaming parties...

Anyway, My mom did the opening prayer and I did a talk on Baptism. Which to mine and everyone surprise went quite well. I did not cry or talk to fast. I just felt very at peace with myself. I felt as if my dad who pasted away was standing by my side giving me strength. It was always the plan to have Cody Baptized by my father but my dad past ways last February.


All in All the weekend went as planned and Cody has now joined the rest of his family in becoming full members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints...

Yes, it is great to be 8!!!!
