Hyrum's Baptism

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!
