Birthday Boys

Taylor's father Bill & Noah share the same birthday, born October 2nd, exactly 50 years apart.  My mom had family over for dinner after General Conference, so it was a perfect opportunity for a little cake!  I find it so neat that Bill always makes an effort to be in town so the two of them can celebrate their birthday together.  They have not missed a year yet.

The birthday boys.
Noah's love for football inspired this cake.
Who knows what they were talking about, but I'm almost certain it was business related.
 The first time, and probably the last, I've ever seen them with their arms around each other & a smile.
 Ben made a "mini-cake" to go along with the birthday cake.
 My brother in-law Jared was in town from Idaho, so we were excited to have him come & hang out with us.  Also, my grandpa was feeling well enough to come over for a while too.  
So grateful for that.

Michael washing dishes?  I'm sure it's because he had Brandy over.  Whenever a girlfriend/boyfriend comes for dinner, I know I won't be needing to do the dishes.

The following Sunday, Noah was ordained to be a Deacon, & was able to pass the Sacrament for the first time.  I can't even express how amazing it felt to see two of my sons passing the Sacrament.  I'm so proud of him.
I love you Noah!!!

Ginger! Your cakes are awesome! One thing that for sure makes me sad about not living by everybody is that we don't get to have family birthday parties. I would so rather do those than friend ones. I'll see you next week!

So sorry we missed the ordination! Loved having you guys over for Conference/Birthday. Can't believe Noah is 12!
