One of the Best Days of my Life...

....and of Audrey's life OF COURSE!!!
On Saturday, October 10th, 2009...
Audrey Elizabeth Hansen was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

In her bedroom with her dress on.

In the Family Room.

In the Living Room.
Note: the day she saw her dress she knew it was the one. It was love at first sight.

At the church.

All of us - Ky was playing peek-a-boo with the camera.

All of her family that could come.
Note: Great Grandma Walton was going to come but she was sick. Also, Aunt Mindy and cousin Mike were planning on coming...until Mikey started throwing up that morning!

Audrey with us and the Andersons -Pops and Grandma Bonnie.

Audrey with us and the Hansens - Great Grandma Hansen, Pops Larry, Grandma Susan, Aunt Melanie and Uncle Steven.

4 generation picture!

Me and "my doll." I am so proud of her decision.

The 3 girls from the ward that were baptized that day...
Celia, Audrey and Nicole. All so beautiful and glowing!
* it was a Stake Baptism and 10 children were baptized that day! WOW!!!

Audrey and her handsome daddy who baptized her.

So of course there were no pictures and video of the ordinance itself but I can tell you
This girl has such a cute personality...she was giggling before and after Kev immersed her. She was just so excited and happy!
Also, it was so cute that afterwards in the bathroom when all the 3 girls were changing into their dresses they were giddy saying things like "that was awesome" to each other and you could tell they were on cloud 9!

Dixie's Diner afterwards hit the spot.

Great Grandma, Audrey and her dad doing "the Hansen" - a special face that's been a tradition to pull whenever possible - for as long as Kevin can remember.

The day after the baptism before church.
*Audrey chose to recite the 13th Article of Faith in front of the congregation when the Bishop introduced her as a new member. She did great! Then she was the first one to bear their testimony for fast and testimony meeting that day. :)

She is my little model.

I was on a spiritual high for a week afterwards. What a wonderful day!!!
