Max was baptized last Saturday. Mom, Dad and Grandma Johnson as well as Koo, David and Trisha and their kids came to see his big day. It is amazing to me that I have a child old enough to be taking this step! Max is an amazing child - so inquisitive and smart and playful - in short, quite a handful! He was very nervous on this day as I watched him sitting in the front row, waiting for his time to go up front. He was the only baptism that day and his primary teacher gave the opening prayer and our new home teacher gave the talk - mom gave the closing prayer. We were very grateful to be able to share this day with our family!

Bryan was able to baptize Maxwell and my Dad did his confirmation with our Bishop, Bryan and David in the circle with him.
After the baptism, we took everyone out to breakfast at Jensen's!
Calvin LOVES baby Matthew. He uses this little baby voice and says "oh, look at the baby! I wanna hold the baby!"


  1. congratulations max!! what a great experience and how fun to have so much family there.

  2. Congratulations Maxwell! Wow, I can't believe he is old enough for baptism. I wish we could have been there, but couldn't exactly spare the time 2 days before finals. I'm so glad that so much of your family was there and Dave and Trisha were able to be there too. I love that first picture of Max! Greg and I have a gift for him, I've just been really bad and haven't sent it yet!

  3. Get ready for the Pinewood Derby!! Congrats Max!

  4. How cool is that to have your dad perform your baptism and to have your Grandpa, your dad and your uncle performing your confirmation. That is just so amazing to me, it made tears come to my eyes just thinking about it. Congratulations Max!
