2014 is has some very important birthdays in our family…Emily is 12! I still can't get my mind wrapped around the fact that my baby is 12 years old. She can though ;) 
Emily's idea of a great birthday means one thing….PARTY!!!

Hailey Bohrer, Lexi Jackson, Faith Merill, Rhyan Green, Anna Nelson, Emily, Cambry Johnson Lindsey Riley, Amberlee Johnson, Jared Brown, Maddie Winterton, Rylie Draper (Top row: Taylor Varley, Kennedy Clark and Izzy Hamblin)

Pizza, Games...
and oreo ice-cream cake

Emily was SUPER EXCITED to have Mitch at her birthday dinner

It's so fun to have him back in Utah

So excited to be 12…on a Tuesday which means she got to go to YOUNG WOMEN'S


A family who works out together...

It's no secret at our house that Emily doesn't like to run, exercise or do anything that might make you sweat! Knowing how important it is for EVERYONE to do SOME kind of exercise, Emily has decided to dance to different songs on youtube 3 times a week.
Jac and Thomas joined in on the fun one night
It was a pretty great bonding moment…I think Jac and Thomas still like running best though ;)


Not sure we like our little girl growing up!
Jac decided to start her day with a PAJAMA RUN…of COURSE!
Some of Jac's "wimpier" friends came later to help celebrate with waffles 
Dinner was spent with Grandma and Grandpa Whiting, Uncle Wade and Mitch (who just got home from his mission) and his good friend, Christian, Nicki and Davin Parish and of course…Us ;)

Black bean brownies…yep, it was a pretty exciting day of being 18!
It's going to be a very exciting year!
Happy 18 Jac…WE LOVE YOU!
