Twelve Is Terrific . . .


Here's Big C teetering on the precipice of teenagedom, staring down the candle as he makes his twelfth birthday wish. Twelve is a pretty big deal around here. It means he can ride in the front seat of the car. He'll be sitting next to his mom, but besides that, the front is cool! It means he can stay home with Hannie B. and RedDog for an hour or two and get PAID to babysit. He'll only get two dollars an hour, but as far as cash flow goes, that's big money!

But the real reason twelve is a big deal around here is because on Sunday Big C. will be ordained a Deacon in our church and will be given the priesthood. My Big C. is one very special boy who makes my life happy and fun. I'm excited for all that awaits him.

And whatever he wished for, I hope he gets! {unless it's a Nintendo DS - because that's just not happeneing.}

Chris, you are one handsome, grown up, amazing guy! See, I can't call you "kid" anymore! Twelve! Just like that!

Chris, you are my very favorite 12 year old grandson. I remember the day you were born, I fell madly in love with you then and that love continues and has grown. I think you're so cool and so good looking too.
