Tristan turned 12 on December 27, 2014. This was a special birthday for him because he received the Aaronic Priesthood in our Church. This is a big responsibility for a young man, but I know he will honor this sacred Priesthood and the duties that come with it. Tristan is a very smart, fun and loving 12 year old. We love him so much and we were so excited to see him pass the sacrament for the first time! Tristan was so anxious to be able to do this. The Bishop of our ward was out of town and then Aaron was out of town, so it took a few weeks for Tristan to receive the Priesthood. It is awesome to have 3 young men who try so hard to be good!
Since Tristan received roller blades for Christmas, he wanted to go to the skate park for a portion of his birthday. Tristan requested we go to Subway for his birthday and then to a movie! The boys had been asking for months to be able to go to Subway, but we have always steered them away from it. We can get subway any day of the week in the States, so naturally we want to enjoy what is french! But, since it was Tristan’s birthday request we took him. He seemed to enjoy it so much, as well as the other children.
These are a few photos from the wet skate park. It decided to rain on Tristan’s birthday!
After a day filled with fun birthday activities, we headed home for some “death by chocolate”! Tristan’s birthday dessert of choice! Everyone says it is 100% better here because of the french pot de crêmes, chantilly (whip cream), and fondant du chocolat (similar to brownies). After singing and dessert, Tristan opened his cool presents! We are so grateful to have Tristan in our lives. His smile melts me as a mother!
We love you Tristan!
