"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

Happy Birthday Raychel

Wow, where has the past 12 years gone? It is hard to believe our baby girl is 12! She thinks she is ready to grow up! She is excited to go into Young Women's and join the older girls for different activities at church. This year she will be old enough to attend girls camp!
The kids are already out of school so we enjoyed celebrating her birthday together all day! We watched her favorite movie, Percy Jackson, went to her favorite place for lunch, she received lots of phone calls and texts, cards and birthday wishes from many of her friends and family. We had a wonderful little family party when Ward got home. By the look on her face I believe she liked all of her birthday gifts! She was so easy to buy for this year! It is hard to believe she is growing up, I have asked Ward many times today how did we get so blessed with such a sweet, kind, beautiful, daughter? I love being around her, she is such an amazing young lady.
