Sef had his baptism today! He was very excited. The baptismal service was nice. M said the opening prayer, Cableguy gave a very wonderful talk on baptism and the Holy Ghost, Spelee said the closing prayer. D baptized Zef. Grandpa and Uncle Bart were the witnesses. Baptisms are always very sweet no matter how many you have seen. I always feel the spirit. D said he asked Zef how it felt (while they were changing). Zef said, "Neat and wet." The rest of us sang songs while we waited for them to change. When they came back, Darin confirmed Zef and gave him a nice blessing. Then Zef just sat there wondering what to do next until the men in the circle got him to shake hands. Zef's ears were red at this point. He was so cute, and so handsome, and so clean.
Afterwards, we went back to our house and had hot chocolate and marshmallows and Christmas cookies and candy canes and clementine oranges. We enjoyed having everyone there and visiting. Zef is a special kid and it was wonderful to see him take this special step.
