I'm currently enjoying some time with my father who is here visiting from Indiana. I hope you all are blessed to have an amazing father like mine!
While he was here, he went with us to the boys' soccer games, the zoo, and to Toys R Us.
All of the kids were excited to have Papa here. I think Deborah was the most excited. Papa was kind enough to follow her around as she ran excitedly from place to place. She loved having his personal attention!

Happy Birthday, Jacob!

Happy birthday to Jacob!Happy birthday to Jacob!Happy birthday, dear Jacob!Happy birthday to Jacob!Today is Jacob's 12th birthday! It's a big birthday with some new privileges. He will be ordained a Deacon, and he gets to start attending Young Men activities at church as well as participating in the Boy Scout Troop (without parent participation on campouts).For his birthday, we picked up Papa from the airport and then had lunch at Chama Gaucha. It was a delicious lunch. We came home and had a fun cake that Jessica made for him, opened gifts, and then sent him off to his first Young Men's activity.He is also planning to go to Incredible Pizza with one of his friends, but that is going to wait till a Tuesday night so that he can enjoy the unlimited games.So to Jacob I say: Happy birthday! I love you and I appreciate all you have taught me. As I've said before, I am a better mother because of you. I'm pleased with all the progress you have made this year. You're doing great and I'm proud of the young man you are becoming! I love you!
