Just in this month he has been winter camping, passed the sacrament and given a lesson in his Deacon's quorum. Oh, what fun it is to be 12.
breakfast in bed (a new family tradition regardless of when they have a party)...
...and a party with his favorite neighbor friend and family. (*Note Sammie not wanting her picture taken.)
If you can't tell there is one and two candles to represent "1" and "2" respectively. He finally got some Nerf guns, though probably not big enough for his liking.See those beautiful shoes? Well, a few days later, I asked him if he liked his new shoes. He said, "Mom, only the kids who want to be cool, but aren't cool wear shoes like that." Oh boy, I think I'm in for it. Since when did he have a taste for clothing/shoes? Is this the point when you start giving gift cards?
Well, despite the latest "teen" developments, he is an amazing kid! Love you, Benji!
