Jane's Baptism - November 19, 2011

Jane was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on November 19, 2011. We had so many family and friends attend this special day. Many of them traveled far, from Colorado, Utah, and Washington DC. It was so fun to have so many people there.
Our good friends Doug and Lyndee Kennett took these pictures of Jane in her baptism dress.

The 2 witnesses: Grandpa Earl and Grandpa Randy

This is all our wonderful family. How loved and special we feel.

We had a picture taken of everyone looking at Jane because she kept saying, "All these people came just for me:)"


Jane was baptized in the same dress that I was baptized in. My mother made it for me and saved it so my girls could wear it.

Brother Rock--our dear home teacher gave the talk on Baptism.

My good friend and Jane's piano teacher Jaime Page played the piano for the baptism. She also helped Jane play the prelude music.

We had many of our dear Indiana friends there too. It was such a special day for Jane and for her proud parents. The spirit was so strong and I felt there were heavenly angels present as well. My mother wouldn't have missed it for anything and Jane and I both felt her near.
Many thank yous to all who attended!!
