Nash had a beautiful, simple baptism service. Nash’s friends, Reese and Elle, sang “He Lives and He Loves Me,” one of our favorite songs.
Nash had a crowd of friends there to support him.
And of course, lots of extended family. Nash’s grandma gave a wonderful talk about baptism.
We gathered back at our house afterwards for a luncheon.
You never know what you’re going to get when you put all the cousins together.
Nash is such a sweet brother to Crew.
And a favorite cousin to Sterling who has a sea of girl cousins on the other side of his family.
We set up a hot chocolate bar outside.
I think the only hiccup in the day was when Crew and Finn giggled uncontrollably when Nash was immersed in the baptism water. I guess they haven’t been to very many baptisms and didn’t know what to expect. We’ll work on the reverence for the next baptism. Nash had a memorable day and felt so loved by all those who traveled near and far to support him.
