Benji had a birthday! 12 years ago I became a mom! We became parents. I was so ready!
We celebrated on Thursday with friends and then the next Thursday with family so we drug it out pretty good. We partied and played and enjoyed Benji. This was his first friends party – EVER. He had no idea what he wanted for his bday. He knew he didn’t want clothes or electronics and he trusted us with the rest! funny kid.
He earned his Faith in God from primary. He moved out of 11 year old scouts. joined the Deacons, received the priesthood, got his temple recommend! Turning 12 is a big deal! Benji is so ready to move on. He still loves rules and does anything to obey. He is kind and looks out for others and he is turning into a good leader!
We got him a bike! and Fablehaven books, rubix cubes, PIT, and Harry Potter Game.
All of the presents were a hit. He was excited to see how nicely a NEW bike rides. And we got the house ready for the party:
and then grabbed Kong Cones cause it was a HOT day:
Grandma and Grandpa stopped by and gave him a pocket knife!
friends came over around 7:00! Pacen and Seth and Nathan were out of town but he had a blast with Ty, Hyrum, Ryan, and Tommy. They got wet out back and waited for it to get dark for an outdoor movie!
A week later we had all of the cousins over and did the slip n slide again and Ben made an obstacle course for them and timed to see how fast they could do it!
