From the Fortress of Solitude
We've arrived home from attending my great nephew Jace Doxey's baptism at the American Fork Tabernacle. Yes, little Jace has officially joined the ranks of the believers. As he rose from the water I thought I heard a swooshing sound. I believe it was Jace's guardian angel enjoying his new pair of wings, awarded for his part in getting Jace to this point. It wasn't easy, Jace and his brother Foxton have their good and bad days. Jace is working on his patience and Foxton, well - he gets a pass on account of his age :)
Two other children were baptized along with with Jace. You might as well make it a community event if you're going to fill the baptismal font. Our family nearly filled the baptismal hall, leaving precious few pews for the other two families. The service was acceptable in length and survivable by most standards, except for the occasional outburst from one or more of Kim and JD's grandchildren. Amber gave a good talk on the importance of the Holy Ghost or Spirit (depending on your denomination) in our lives.
Jace is the 8 year old son of Amber and Brock Doxey. Amber is eldest daughter of Kim Williamson and John DelGrosso (see Relationship Chart below).
A luncheon was held at the DelGrosso home in Highland after the service. It was a warm afternoon. The company was good and the many babies entertained everyone. Annette and her children were there. Annette will be moving to American Fork next week.
