Parker had his 12th Birthday back in December! His Birthday was on Saturday, so his best friends came to spend the night Friday night. We had so much fun with the boys! They played video games and ate, and ate, and ate, they stayed up all night and still woke up in the morning for a breakfast birthday party!
Later in the day, after the friends went home, we had a family party for Parker at Grandma's and Grandpa's house. Uncle Guy and Auntie Kristy came home, and we had a full turkey dinner and German chocolate cake! Since Parker turned 12, the next day (Sunday) he was ordained a Deacon! What an Awesome experience to have our first son receive the Priesthood! It was so neat having all of John's family there too! Now we get to see Parker pass the Sacrament every Sunday! He is such a great son and I feel so blessed to have him!
