Dane's Baptism

Dane Anson Hamblin
Happy Baptism!
I had these darling photos of Dane that Lynda Thomassen took in January of Dane. But unfortunately, I packed them up and sent them with Todd home. For all of you that would like to attend Dane's baptism, here is the official invitation.
Please join us in celebrating the baptism of DANE ANSON HAMBLIN on Saturday, September 5th, 2009 at 7pm at the Dayton LDS chapel at
We will also be celebrating "life" along with the baptism and the return of Devree from St. Jude's. We will be meeting on Saturday the 5th at 10am at Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe. We will be meeting at the group Gazebo area for all day swimming and lunch. Admission to Sand Harbor is $8. per vehicle. We will be leaving Lake Tahoe by 3pm to get ready for the baptism that evening.

I wanted to reserve the Gazebo area, but it was already reserved. We will be down on the beach area. So as you drive into Sand Harbor, try to park at the very first area on the right, right after the big building. We will be down in that little rocky cove.

We are a little bit surprised today because Devree actually lost weight this morning. She just got weighed and she lost 3 pounds since Thursday but she is still eating well. I think she needs to drink more to give her some weight but we are not complaining. The nutritionist just spoke to us and said that is expected after Devree is not on TPN and all of that liquid.

Next Tuesday night is when we arrive home.

Yah . . . for coming home!!! It brings tears to my eyes to think about you COMING HOME NEXT TUESDAY! Hang in their Deveree. Just keep on doing all those things you are doing, no matter how silly or tiresome they may seem. You are headed down the home stretch! Hope to see you both soon and to give you hugs!!!

Dear Aunt Shana and Devree,

One more week! That is so exciting. We are so sad that we will not be able to come for the baptism and celebrating life, party. But, we will be thinking of you and wishing we were there. We love you, tons.

Love, Craig, Koe and Kylee

So glad you could make it home for Dane's baptism! Everything worked out great! That day sound like so much fun, and it will be great to see everyone again. A day to remember for so many reasons! Congrats to your entire family.

Jaynie says, "please hurry and get out of the hospital! I hope you are feeling better. I really like you."

And with that she has officially become our family spokesperson as she said what we all are feeling. But who knows what else will come out of her now that she officially represents our family. She's a free spirit, that's for sure!

One week from today! It seemed like it would never come at times, but it's here! We're so proud of you! Keep up your fight and see you so soon.
