Our oldest turned 12 recently so we had a big party at Classic Skating. Grandma Young and Troy's sister and most of her family made the trek from Arizona to be here for the special occasion. The cousins had so much fun playing together, especially the 2 girls.

In our church, when the boys turn 12 they have the opportunity to receive the Aaronic priesthood. It's a big honor. Besides holding the priesthood, they collect fast offerings, pass the sacrament, help take care of the church building and for more info you can go to to learn more about it and what it means. Here are a few pictures we took:

I have 2 priesthood holders in my house now!
Note: I'm 7 1/2 months pregnant- hence the crop-job

It was fun having family come and visit

Last Saturday we got to take him to the temple to do baptisms for the dead with some family file names. After they were stamping the date on our cards, I realized, "Hey, it's Grandpa Young's birthday!" Grandpa would have been 86 this year. We miss you and love you Grandpa!


  1. Holy moly I can't believe that he's 12! bAH! Where has the time gone?

  2. Oh they grow up so fast! Smother them with hugs and kisses before they will no longer let you! Then keep doing it just to spite them! You have such a cute family - can't wait to meet the newest member soon!
