Andrew's Baptism

Today (Saturday, March 12th) Andrew was baptized! So many family members and friends came to support him on his big day!

Andrew was baptized by his dad and confirmed by his Grandpa Kim. 

Uncle Allen and his cousin Leah came all the way from Baltimore. They accompanied the primary chorus musical number I Am a Child of God. Leah played the violin and Allen played the piano.

Grandma Julie gave a beautiful talk on the Holy Ghost, Elise & Jessie said the opening and closing prayers, and Scott & Dan were the witnesses. Grandma Shari played the prelude and closing song and Allen conducted the music. Andrew & Kevin played a gorgeous duet on the piano- When I Am Baptized.

So many wonderful families attended including Bishop and Sister Christensen, President and Sister Carter, Andrew's primary teachers Sister Bates and Sister Trueman, plus the whole Trueman clan. The Connors family also came along with the Bryant Smith family and the Heyman family. Andrew's regular awesome babysitters Ashley and Alexa (and her mom) also came as did our Palo Alto friend Jeremy Dittmer.

In addition to those friends/family all of my sisters and their families along with my brother and his family came! Plus Grandpa Kim & Julie of course! We were also so grateful that Grandma Shari was able to come along with Uncle Allen and Leah! 

Afterwards we had a family gathering back at my house with a Chipotle taco bar and loads of desserts. It was yummy and I think we'll be eating leftover Chipotle for awhile. We had 16 adults and 21 kids in my house on a very rainy wet day so it definitely was filled with a lot of energy!
