Jack's Baptism

 This guy woke up super early and was dressed and ready to go before anyone else.
He could not wait for his big day!

  My whole crew

 He loved everything, but wanted to get the show on the road

My boys all in white.
(I don't know if it was ok to take pictures in the church like this, but I'm kind of glad my cousin did)

 Perfect and clean
 We sang songs and chatted while the boys got dressed.

 I asked him how he felt and he said "amazing and so happy!"

 We heard some awesome talks by both Grandpas.
Grandpa Rick gave Jack a special compass, in hopes that he will always be able to choose the right path in life. I'm pretty sure that Jack will cherish that all his life.

 Our sweet Bishop Tucker is always so emotional.
It was hard for me to maintain my composure as he welcomed Jack as the newest member of the church.

 Ella was so helpful, as always. Someone took this picture of my girls just outside the room.
Lila was getting restless.

Then we all went over to where we had a planned brunch.
Thank you to everyone who ran over and put the last minute things together.

 We got a TON of snow the night before that prevented some people from being able to make it.
So there was lots of food!

 We were so happy that some of Ryan's family were able to make it.
Even Ryan's Dad and his wife drove up from Arizona to be there.

 Since it was his special day I had a couple presents for him.
Scriptures, a tie pin, book marks, a little journal and a CTR ring

Who knows, maybe those will be the scriptures he will take on his mission someday

 One of Jack's best buds Preston. Hopefully we can a photo of the together at Preston's baptism and then again for their missions and weddings :)

Anna wanted a picture with her new boyfriend Johnny..

 All of the kids!

So happy and grateful for everyone who came to support Jack on his big day- a day he will never forget I'm sure!
