Landon's Special Day

Our little boy was baptized today. Not so little anymore, though- he looked like a missionary all dressed up in his new suit! It was a beautiful day and the baptism and program all went so nicely. It happened to work out that Landon was the only one from our ward being baptized yesterday, so it was just our family, which made it extra special and personal. Landon had his Grandpas give the opening and closing prayers and his Grandma McAllister gave the talk about baptism and Grandma Judy gave the talk about the Holy Ghost. Richard, Daniel and Emma did the special musical number "The Still Small Voice" and did such a good job. Landon was so sweet to make sure to go personally to each person that came and thank them for coming. It was a great spirit and a great day. We had everyone over to our house afterwards for lunch and got to spend time visiting and playing with family. Landon is such a good boy and he is so obedient. He truly has a special spirit and is very observant to what is going on, what others need and how others are feeling. We just love that boy so much and are so very proud of the kind of boy he is. We are truly blessed to have him in our family! Landon requested a special "Daddy/Son" date, so after the baptism Richard and Landon went horseback riding in Mt. Pleasant. When they got home Landon asked me if he made me feel bad because he didn't spend enough time with me that day. See what I mean? He's a sweetie. I told him I was happy he got to go and ride with Dad and do what he wanted! It was really a great day!
