I'm so happy for Sydney that SHE made the chose to enter the waters of baptism and follow Jesus Christ. She is so obedient, enthusiastic about the gospel, and a great example to her younger siblings and Jeff and I included. So far since her baptism I have heard her say, "Mom, Jordyn is bugging me and I don't want to hit her and sin. Can you talk to Jordyn." I've also seen her jump on the trampoline and then see her stop jumping, fold her arms and pray. Once she said she prayed because her leg was hurting her. I love this girl to pieces!
After we had a get together at our home. In November I saw a book called, The Holy Ghost is like a Blanket, and thought it would be cool to make her a quilt and give her this book. I told her I wanted to make her a quilt (my first one) and asked what colors she wanted and it would be a surprise how it turned out. She picked red and turquoise. I made it and put CTR in the middle. That color scheme then inspired colors for the rest of the food at our get together. She loved the quilt and so did I. My friend Kirsten finished the quilt on her machine. I had another friend make the cool CTR cake and then I made the CTR cookies and CTR pretzel rods. Sydney was excited for all the attention, goodies, and getting baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. It was a wonderful day for a wonderful girl.
The cool m&ms
So excited to have her own scriptures now.
"What my name too!?"

This cool cake my friend made. Isn't that amazing?
Someone said her smile was "infectious." She greeted everyone and made sure she talked to everyone who came to her baptism.
