It happened! It finally happened!! On November 24th at 2:30 pm Layla finally got baptized!! I only say finally because I feel like we've had to switch the days so many times due to the last deployment. The baptism was wonderful! The guest of honor, however, was quite chatty during her baptism so I apologize if some of you were unable to hear it. Here are some pictures of her baptism (WARNING there are a lot of pictures!):

Brady. He had no nap that day and spent the majority of the time trying to entertain everyone. Why pay for entertainment when you have a 2 year old?
Everyone dishing up

The guest of honor passed out at her own party!
