My sweet, responsible, joy of a daughter just turned 12!
I don't why but this was so much harder then Dal turning 16!
With turning 12, Lauren is now in the Young Woman's program at our church.
I love how welcoming her new leaders have been.
Her birthday was right before Young Woman's in Excellence.
It was so nice to be able to go with her and see how the girls are working towards
their YW medallions. I loved seeing how much they love the Lord and how the leaders and YW
love each other. Lauren will be in good company.
Lauren is so talented. She is kind and giving.
She has a way with little children, they all instantly love her!
One day she'll be an amazing mother and wife.
Sometimes I think it her who is raising all of us.
I'm only kinda kidding with that. ;)
Just like her Grandpa Reynolds, Lauren loves the Pepperidge Farm's Coconut Cake!
For dinner she requested Creamy Tortellini Soup!
Go here for recipe
Evie didn't like the burnt lettuce!.
Lauren asked for a party and I was happy to throw her one!
It was super loud and crazy!
It also was wait for it........A party with BOYS!
Which is one reason it was loud and crazy!
Everyone had so much fun they asked to extended it until 10 pm!
Because it was a Saturday night and we had Church the next day,
we compromised with 9:45 pm but most left around 10 pm anyways.
To keep Milo and Evie upstairs and out of Lauren's hair,
Justin made a bunch of towers with them.
Each one they would name after a Temple and the top cup would be Angle Moroni!
Then they would knock it down, not sure if I should read to much into that?
