Estella's Baptism

Two weeks ago Estella was baptized and became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  We are so proud of her.  We were glad to have Grandma and Grandpa H here with us.  We missed Grandma and Grandpa O, but we are so proud of them for the service to the Lord and the people of Columbia.
The kids sang "Keep the Commandments" and Alicia played the obligato on her flute.  The primary children will be singing it (with Alicia on flute) for the sacrament meeting presentation next week.  I'll get a video so I can post it.

My Little Stokowski

The other night it was 2 year old Chauncey's turn to lead the music for Family Home Evening.  So he got out the primary song book and set it up on the music stand (facing the window, his back to the rest of the family) and proceeded to conduct "Follow the Prophet."
It was so cute I just thought, "Wow, I wish I had a video camera right here."  Then I realized that I was holding my iPad in my lap, Duh.  I'm a little slow on the whole technology thing.  I managed to catch the last few seconds and boy are they worth it.
