Danny Kaye's B-day

That's right! Danny Kaye had another birthday. He turned 12, this means that he is now officially a part of young mens. He's been hanging out with their scout group since there isn't enough boys to have separate groups, but he wasn't allowed to attend the activities that were done with the girls. He had a glow in the dark theme pool party on Friday to celebrate. According to the boys that attended, I really knew how to throw a party. I think it was my favorite b-day party so far. Clean up went fast. Getting the boys interested in games wasn't hard, since pool games aren't construed as babyish even by teenage standards. The time went fast and the kids could be as noisy as they wanted. I didn't have to worry about oversized boys getting rambunctious and breaking things in my house. and given the heat in August it was an awesome time to have a night party at the pool. Danny Kaye chose to have a big cookie instead of a cake. I had them put two fencing swords crossing in the middle and we did sparkler candles. It was as much fun lighting them as him blowing them out, lol. He received the Aaronic priesthood on Sunday. It was really special. Big Red conferred the priesthood upon him and his young mens president, primary teacher, bishop, Uncle J, and scout leader all stood in as well. His dad and abuelita made it there to share in the experience and Aunt E, Little T, and Music Man, Little Red and I made up the rest of the cramped room. He was blessed with knowledge and wisdom several times, so afterwards his scout master said he couldn't wait for him to show him some of this wisdom in scouts, lol. It really was a special day for Danny Kaye. And I can't wait for the second sunday of September b/c I'll have two sons serving the sacrament! What a cool feeling for this Mom! Below are some pics from the b-day bash
