Happy 12th Birthday Mackenzie!!

(Mackenzie has whipcream and fudge on her cheek in this picture)

I cannot believe it was 12 years ago tonight that Ryan and I became parents for the first time! We had no idea what we were in for! The past 12 years have gone by fast and it is amazing the beautiful young woman Mackenzie has become. Yes- YOUNG WOMAN- she is officially part of the youth group at church! She has been attending mutual for the past three weeks as she has been practicing Roadshow. What a great way to be initiated into the youth program! We are so proud of the person Mackenzie is- she is confident, intelligent, talented, helpful, a leader, etc etc....

Tonight we had a birthday dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Wright, Great- Grandma and Great-Grandpa Dickison, Aunt Deeanna, Scooter, Uncle Randy, Rachel and Dallin at Lonestar! It was so great that everyone was able to travel 40 minutes on the freeway on a Tuesday night. She got lots of great presents- rainbow sandals, scripture stickers, ipod dock, flowers, joke book, money, gift certificates, and a shopping day with mom. Yes- she is VERY SPOILED! Her friend Cassie even brought her a donut to school for breakfast. Mackenzie had a great day and felt really loved by her family and friends!
