Jacey's Baptism Day

Jacey was baptized on September 4, 2010.  She had the opportunity to get baptized with her cousin Jenna, who was born only a few weeks before Jacey.  They have been good buds ever since they were born, so it was fun for them to share their special day together.  My brother Michael and my parents made the trip up from California, and we had many other family members there for it as well.  Jacey is such a sweet and tender-hearted girl, and I am glad that she made the decision to be baptized.
 Jacey was baptized in the same dress I wore for my baptism--25 years ago!

I think that Brookie sang the loudest!

Jacey's Photo Shoot

I decided to have a friend take some pictures of Jacey for her baptism.  Jacey loved the whole process of getting all gussied up and having someone pose her and take her pictures.  Maybe a modeling career in her future?

 This last one is my favorite.  It shows so much personality!

Jacey's 8th Birthday

Jacey turned 8 on September 1.  It's hard to believe that she is growing up so fast!  Since it was a big birthday, I let her choose what she wanted to do for a party.  She decided to that she wanted to go swimming at the rec center pool, and then come home to open presents and have pizza, cake and ice cream.  We had to have her party a few days early because we were going to be gone up north for her baptism over the Labor Day weekend.  She invited 5 friends to come and they had a blast!

 My lovely peace sign cake!

Landon is already a ladies' man!

We had a family birthday party a few days later on her actual birthday.  Check out the play-by-play when she opened the iPod shuffle that she had been "dreaming of".  The reaction is classic!  She even got her name engraved on it, courtesy of the Apple store.

 Guess she had a good birthday!
