Paige's Baptism

Can't believe this has really happened!!  
How did my little girl grow up and turn 8?

Paige Brookelynn Vincent was baptized by her father on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010

Paige was lucky to share the day with two of her little friends, Madelyn Dobbins (on her right) and Julia Zeyer (on her left).  These little girls were so cute and SO excited!!  Paige was the last of the three to be baptized that day.

After Paige got out of the water, I met her at the top of the font stairs and took her into the dressing room.  She started giggling and squealed to me, "I can't believe I really just got BAPTIZED!!"  Paige had chosen her Grandpa Terry to give the opening prayer and her Aunt Valerie to give a talk on the Holy Ghost (who both did an amazing job!!)  She asked Grandpa Lynn to be a witness and also asked her cousin Brady, who she looks up to and just adores.

Paige invited SO many guests and friends to watch her!  She wanted to share it with everyone she knew!!  After the ordinance, we invited all her friends over for a hot-dog barbeque.  It turned out great and she was just thrilled to be "Queen for the day".

Paige was super excited to be able to pick out her own set of scriptures and have her name put on them.  Unfortunately, they spelled her name wrong the first time, so they ended up replacing the first set with a much nicer, more expensive set because they didn't have the ones she had originally picked.
It is a tradition of Grandma and Grandpa Vincent to give each of their grandchildren a comforter when they get baptized to represent the Holy Ghost.  Aunt Valerie found this white fluffy one that truly warms you right up!  Looks like Paige isn't the only one that loves it!  Sadly for Bode, this is the last time he will ever be allowed to snuggle under it since he drooled chocolate and big sister has forbid him to ever touch it again.

We are so proud of our little Paige-a-Roo!
