Hatch and his dad, John getting ready to enter the waters of baptism.
A couple of weeks before the big day, I got a phone call from Hatch. I wondered what he wanted, he rarely calls just out of the blue. He was calling to ask me to give the talk on baptism. What an honor, but it's been a very long time since I was in the Primary. Why would such a small task make me so nervous. Of course I said yes. I couldn't turn down this cute kid and heck you only get baptized once in your life. Right? So the talk went on without a hitch.
Afterwards we met at the Carter house for a nice luncheon. At Hatch's request we had brisket with all the trimmings. Everything tasted delish.
Kira had the bar all set up with a western flare. She had a picture of Hatch as a newborn and on the other side she had his present picture. My how he has grown.
Dosen't he look older in this picture. He almost looks like a missionary. The way time flies he will be doing that too.
Of course, Grandma Thomas' potatoe salad. I know it was the same salad but where was the yellow bowl she always makes it in. Kira can make a mean potatoe salad. I am so glad she spent the time with mom learning the secrets of making it. Miss Angie made cupcakes for dessert (another blog post later). She really has gotten into the cupcake making business. They were totally awesome.
