Pure

Saturday, September 25th will be a day that Alysee will never forget. Alysee was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'd say that Alysee had been preparing for this day her whole life. She was able to celebrate with many extended family members. My one regret is that we didn't get a picture of everyone that was able to attend her special day.
Aunti Emi and I worked hard to get Alysee's hair looking all pretty for this special occasion. Her best friend, Marina, from school was able to come spend the afternoon with Alysee and was eager to give her opinions about which hair thing she should wear.

The final product! I made her special white hair flower just for this memorable day.

Two of Alysee's favorite girl cousins, Malia and Laynie Ditto were able to come celebrate with Alysee.

After Alysee was baptized Birch took her outside to do a little photo shoot. She was so antsy to play with her cousins that it was a bit of a whirlwind shoot.
Alysee had always wanted a really pretty special white dress to wear after she was baptized. She loved the dress that I found for her to wear. In this shot I think she is dreaming a bit of getting married...slow down Alysee. That can't happen for another fifteen years!

Couldn't be prouder!
Love this girl!!!
After Alysee's baptism we spend the evening partin' it up.
Keeping with Grannie's tradition that she started with Alex...Grannie brought the Ditto Family Proclamation for Alysee to sign.
Alysee said that she felt "warm and happy" after being baptized! We sure are proud of her!
