Hyrum is eight years old already and was baptized with his friend, Dylan, on Friday night. It was a great baptism. He was soooo excited! The family all pitched in with Dad doing the baptism and confirmation, Moroni and Grandpa Mel being witnesses, McKay giving a prayer, and Mom giving a talk on the Holy Ghost. It was a very special evening. Afterwards, Hyrum was so excited that he got baptized that he was telling everyone...even the clerk at the store. The conversation went something like this:
Hyrum to the clerk: "Guess what, I'm eight years old and I got baptized tonight!"
Clerk: "Why would you want to do that?"
Hyrum: "So I could get the Gift of the Holy Ghost!"
He had a similar conversation with the person at the ticket office of the movie theater. He's a missionary already! Speaking of missionaries, through the magic of photoshop, Ammon was able to attend the baptism also!
The boys enjoy doing a pose they call "The Barney Stinson." Silly boys!
