Ashley's Birthday and Babtism

Ashley turned 8 years old. This was a special Birthday because it is the age for babtism. We bought her scriptures with her name engraved on her scriptures

She also recieved a webkinz, a skunk she loves those stuffed animals

Here she is blowing out her candles

Grandma Murdoch sewed this beautiful white dress for her

Here is Ashley and her Dad just before her babtism

We had a luncheon afterwards at a park. All of my family came. This is the first time in our family we have had everyone attend a special occasion because all of the previous ones we have lived far away, so that was special for me to have all of my family there. This is a picture of Ashley's cousins

They all decided this was the place to sit and eat instead of the picnic tables

We had a fireplace in our little pavillion. There was already hot coals so we started a fire

My brother steve's twins hannah and Alexis and my other brother Richard's daughter Keira

The kids enjoyed standing on part of the fireplace. It was a great day and a special day for Ashley. She's the cleanest one in our family right now.

Isn't it crazy...we've been thinking SO much lately about Noah's upcoming baptism. He is really excited! I can't believe they are 8 this year! When I met you, Noah and Ashley were in nursery together and we were pregnant with Madison and Kara! YIKES, time flies huh?

What a special day for Ashley! Thanks for the wonderful time, my kids loved playing with your girls, we really should get together more often.

Baptisms are always such wonderful days! It is nice when family can all get together for these times. My Makayla will get baptized this year too. Her birthday is the end of November. My last one to get baptized!

Ashley looks beautiful her her pretty white dress.

Congratulations to Ashley! She looks beautiful! We, of course, miss you, but I'm glad that you got to have family there for Ashley's baptism. It's wonderful that you get to be near your extended family!
