We went to Lowe's Build and Grow clinic again, and on the morning of Jacob's baptism! What a busy day. Later that night was our Ward Christmas Party too. I didn't get pictures of that but it was amazing. The theme was, "A Night in Bethlehem." The church was completely transformed into a marketplace and lots of people were in costumes and there was wonderful bread and a few activities for the kids including writing you name in Hebrew. There was also a tour that took you to several different rooms to see the story of Christ's birth unfold in song and action, really cool.

I think he was crying because he got hurt. Poor Ben.
By the way, white tights and the floor of Lowe's don't mix. I had to take her tights off for the baptism they were so bad.
We made it to the baptism and in plenty of time. I gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. It was a nice baptism, 4 kids all together.
Tyler and Jacob
The family, some of them anyway, and the lady on the far right is Grandma Kay, I am still amazed that she is still with us after what she went through.

I was happy to read Grandma Honey's comment, it's nice to know someone is looking forward to pictures of mine! They will get posted too, I promise.

Lowes Build Clinic-Jacob's baptism-Ward Christmas party...all in one day?! Speaking at the baptism would have been enough for me for one day!

We dressed up too, most people did but they let you in even if you didn't. We were also given gold coins to turn in for taxes.
