Jacob turns 12

I can't believe my first baby is 12! It's brought back alot of memories of my pregnancy and first weeks with him being pregnant with Kaylee now. I am so proud of the young man Jacob is developing into, no facial hair or voice changes yet I'm sure this year will bring even more changes.
What a busy weekend. Marty's birhtday was March 4th, Jacob's was March 5th, and my baby shower was March 6th. It worked out well because my mom and Marty came up for the shower and we had a little family party friday night. Keeping with our new tradition Jacob decorated his own cake. We assked Jacob what he wanted to do for his birthday and he 's been planning this for awhile he said "Mom I'm 12, I'm ready for the extreme rollercoasters, I wanna go to Magic Mountain" So while mom and I went to the shower Steve, Jacob, the little boys and Jacob's best friend Luke went to Six Flags. I ended up picking up Steve and the little ones early, not much for them to do there. Marty, Jacob, and Luke had a blast and stayed till closing. There were no lines the perfect day! Sunday Jacob got set apart and recieved the aaronic priesthood which was really cool, I was so proud! It was neat to see him passing the sacrament the following Sunday. It is so exciting to see your children grow and develop in the church. It reconfirms my own testimony and makes me want to be a better example to my children.
