One year older and wiser too, Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to our dear Julien who turned 12 today! It hardly seems real to me that he is 12 already. I still think of him as my first baby, the one that loved to snuggle, the little terror who would run to the neighbor's door naked and ring their door bell, our little 18 months old who would jump in the pool and try to swim alone (which he was actually really good at); but now I look into his face and realize he is no longer a little child, but becoming more and more like a young men. He is growing up a wonderful young men. He is so smart and talented and such a big help. We love him very much and are so proud of him.

Birthday Shoot!

Today was a special day because Julien received
the Aaronic Priesthood and was ordained to the office of deacon.
He is so excited to have the priesthood and be a young men.

Julien had a lot of people come support him in his decision and help him celebrate.
Grandma and Grandpa drove up from Las Vegas!

Mami and Papi were thrilled to be there also.

Julien loved having so many aunts and uncles there!

Julien and his Grandparents!

All the men who participated in the ordination.
It was so awesome to see so many worthy priesthood holders ordain Julien,
the spirit was very strong.

For his birthday Julien got a new set of scriptures (a quad) with his name engraved in it, 
along with a new scripture case.

These ridiculously hilarious hats from Scarlet and Raph

LEGOS!!!! As always!

And Cake of course!
I think it is fair to say that it was a wonderful day!
