While we were away…
…from this here blog, we had some big birthdays in our family.
Jackson turned the all-important eight, which in our church is a big deal. He was baptized by Seth in Provo, surrounded by family and friends.
It was such a memorable time for him. He also launched right into Cub Scouts, which he adores.
And we can’t forget the all-important five-year-old birthday for our little guy Preston. Birthday cakes are usually the center of birthdays around here, but we were still in the throes of moving cross-country, unpacking, settling in, trying not to go crazy, etc. So Preston got a boxed lemon cake with lemon icing and a million lemon heads stuck all over. It was a huge hit. All these years, if only I had known…
I think five is one of my favorite ages. I loved being five myself. I’m so glad I get one more quiet year at home with this little guy before he heads off with the big boys.
Oh, to see these boys of mine growing up so quickly. I love it…and hold on to each moment.
