Baptism and Blessing

What blessings we have had in the last while!!! We were able to have Robert baptized and Talia blessed in the same weekend.

Robert is such a good, strong boy. I am so proud of the example that he sets for his siblings and for his friends. He is not afraid to share the gospel, or stand up for what he believes, already. He has a testimony and has borne it a number of times (sure beat me by this point). I know that he was ready for this day, and I couldn't be happier.
This is the picture Robert really wanted to take!

The day was wonderful. Robert was SO excited he was jumping up and down, literally. Nan played the piano, Rob and Bob gave talks. Bob confirmed him. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people came out to support and show their love for Robert the day of his baptism. Even my friends, the Lemmons, came out to show their support.
The night of Robert's baptism we tried out VooDoo doughnuts for the first time. I guess we picked the wrong time to go. We arrived at like 7:30 at night and there was a big line out the front of the doughnut shop. It had just been nominated one of the top ten doughnut places in the U.S. by Bon Apetit. Oh well, we endured the line and got some yummy doughnuts. Yes, the one Austin is eating has fruit loops on it. The one next to his is the actual "Voo Doo" doughnut, it has a pretzel for a pin in it.

The next day was the baby blessing for Talia Mae.The girls...
Isabelle LOVES it when Talia holds her hand.Robert just LOVES Talia with all his heart.
