Sariah's baptism

Sariah got baptized on September 13, 2008. She was baptized in the Blackfoot Northwest Stake Center. Normally there are a bunch of kids baptized the same day and in one meeting, but because we were in the middle of moving, we were lucky enough that they made an exception for us, and Sariah got her own private baptism. The only people who were there were our family, my parents and most of my brothers and sisters, and my Grandma and Grandpa Fife, Brother Packer who presided, and Sister Lot who played the piano. So, it was really small and intimate. Trista gave a talk, then Sariah was baptized, and then while she was changing back into dry clothes, everyone there wrote little notes with their testimonies, or thoughts for Sariah, that we will put together in a book for her. Then she got confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and after her confirmation, she got the opportunity to speak, and bear her own little testimony. It was so nice, and I can't imagine it going better.

Here's a link for more baptism pictures.
