Alyssa's Baptism

Wow! I still can't believe it. My Alyssa was baptized. She looked so beautiful and was so excited to be baptized today. She is such an amazing little girl. I amso proud of her today. It is always so amazing to see Jose give his kids blessings. It was especially neat to watch him baptize and confirm his daughter. There was an amazing spirit with her today and i'm so blessed to be her mom. We are so lucky to have the Gospel. I am grateful for it everyday.

Alot of her family and friends were there at her baptism. We shared the baptism with another little girl in the stake so the people that contributed to the program on Alyssa's side where:

Shelby gave the opening prayer,
Rina played piano,
Ana conducted,
We sang, "I am a Child of God",
Trina Vickers gave the talk on baptism,
Alyssa's Dad baptized her,
Maurice and Jared where the witnesses
Jared gave a talk on Confirmation,
Jose confirmed her and Tristan, Maurice, Bishop Adamson, Jared, and Chad were in the circle.
The bishop spoke and told Alyssa her name mean't Truth,
We sang, "When I was Baptized",
The closing prayer was given by the other little girls Grandma.

I never want Alyssa to forget this special day! We are so proud of you princess!
