My sweet baby boy was given the Aaronic Priesthood today. I can't believe he's twelve. He was called up in front of the ward to let everyone know that he would get the priesthood today and then they had him sit down. Brett sent him back up to ask the Bishop if he should have been sustained. The Bishop shook his head no so we thought maybe protocol had changed. However in Relief Society and Priesthood the Bishop and his Counselors ran around to all the classes and asked for a sustaining vote. Someone stopped Duncan in the hall and told him the whole ward would remember the day he received the Priesthood because it was a little unusual.
Brett gave the blessing, and there was a whole crew of men to support my baby. Grandpa Child, Grandpa Siddoway, Gary Sharp (Brett's Cousin), Bishop Robertson, Scott Cline, Keith West, and John Peterson. I love these men and am grateful for the example they are in my sons life.
Brett blessed Duncan with the ability to remain a good kid, (not exactly his words). I'm grateful for my husband and his worthiness to use his Priesthood. It sure makes this Mom feel a lot better.
After the blessing Duncan turned around to give his Dad a hug, and my sweet boy had tears streaming down his face. He is such a GREAT KID!
I had to take pictures!!! Grandma and Grandpa Child, Duncan, Grandma and Grandpa Siddoway. They are such a HUGE support.Had to get pictures of my sweet family.
Duncan's best friend who was able to be there because he is the Deacons Quorum President.
Bishop Robertson. He's such a sweet guy, and put up with a crazy Mom who needed to take pictures of everything.
Then we celebrated Birthday's at Grandma and Grandpa Siddoways. Duncan, Grandpa, and Alaric. Alaric wasn't as excited to blow out the candles as these two were.
Then we celebrated Duncan's Birthday at Grandma and Grandpa Child's house. Brett made the cake from scratch and it was absolutely divine!!!
All in all a pretty good day!
