My son turns 12

Jacoby and Lily
My sweet 12 yr old Jacoby

Our sweet BABY turned 12 today and received the Aaronic Priesthood..
We are proud of how good a kid he is and the way he tries to be helpful and kind to those around him...
Daddy set him apart with Bishop Chatwin, Brother Alexander, Brother Wilkinson, Brother McGonagill, Brother Wicke and Brother Rowland..
He then came over to give me a kiss and hug IN FRONT of his peers!!! I love this boy..
Jacoby was especially happy to get a DOG... She is a silky terrier and her name is Lily...
Thanks to the Masseys for letting her join the Arrington Clan...
Tonight we had several visitors including Uncle Bobo and Aunt Kathy, Gramma, Jimmie and Scott... Elisabeth and her boys( she brought the most delicious strawberry, custard filled homemade cake) Margo Roberts (who brought over delicious Rum rolls) and then Uncle Jeff and Aunt Donna who brought over homemade cookies and a plate of cookies WITHOUT NUTS especially for Jacoby..
Scott, his 22 yr old cousin stayed for several hours and played games with Jacoby which totally made his birthday THE BEST!!!!
I am grateful to have a son who is tender hearted and loving and kind.. He was well worth waiting for...

The Christmas tree is UP!!!!

Daddy and Jacoby with the girls after they put the tree up and decorated it..
Jacoby has placed the Angel on top for the past 12 years ......
That is HIS job!! Last year it about killed Mathew lifting him up on his shoulders..
Wonderful to see daddy pick his son up so easily AND with a smile on his face...
I have been BEGGING to have the tree put up early as last year we just did not get around to it until our friends, Kirk and The Pecks came to help!!!! Mathew was barely able to help with him being so sickly.... Now it is up and we all love it.... Time to celebrate early!!!!!!!
Due to Mathew not working, our Christmas will be more about what the real meaning is rather than what the kids will get from SANTA!!!!!
This is going to be an awesome Christmas just knowing we are all here together as a family and all is well..... This past year has been somewhat of a trial but one where the Heavens were opened and blessings poured down upon us..
Thank you again to all our wonderful ward family and friends and neighbors for the love you have shown to us throughout!
We look forward to serving others that are in need and know that as we serve our fellowmen we in turn are serving Our Heavenly father..
God Bless you all ...
