He's still not a teenager, but twelve is a big milestone, and deserves a big celebration. We pretty much had an all-day party. We started off with a pancake breakfast up the canyon. Luckily the Elders Quorum put that together, so all we had to do was show up. When we got home Robbie opened his presents—he had a few more than we usually give, but they were mostly utilitarian. He got suit pants, a white shirt, a couple of ties, a belt and shoes, plus a Bible to go with the triple combination he received when he turned eight. There were a few fun gifts too, some books and legos. I'm sure it won't be long before he just wants cash. We caught a matinee of How to Tame Your Dragon and then the kids played with the new legos while Rob rode his bike and I fixed the birthday meal. The "Died and Gone to Heaven Chicken" will have to have its own post later. It was a pretty good day, for a really great kid.
