Elsa's Baptism

On the morning of 4th of July, Elsa Lelise Christine was baptized and became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elsa has been learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ since she moved here a year and a half ago and was so excited to make this choice.

[Elsa was baptized wearing the same dress I wore, as well as both of my sisters, Alexandra, and Lorelai.]

I am so proud of Elsa. She truly is Christlike - she is kind, charitable, forgiving, and compassionate.

Following the baptism, we hosted a luncheon at our home.

My friend and neighbor, Esther, made Elsa a cupcake dress in honor of the day.

Elsa, admiring her very own set of scriptures. 
She especially loved how her name was engraved on the cover.
