She's developing some great cooking skills and enjoys time in the kitchen. She loves playing cards and games and has an amazing creative imagination. She loves being in Young Womens and is First Counselor in the Beehive Presidency. She's really grown up a lot!

This year, ZJ has developed many skills. She's becoming quite the artist, loves playing piano and being in the kitchen. She was the fastest girl runner in her school. ZJ can cook just about anything and creates her own recipes quite often. She is very maternal, loves children and is an excellent babysitter. She can not wait for her next birthday, which isn't until March, so that she can be in Young Womens with her sister!

This year, Quayd has grown taller than his mama! And he doesn't let me forget it! He is a hard worker, loves earning (and spending) money and always looking for extra jobs to do. He's works hard and plays hard. He is great with little children. Quayd has a gentle nature and a kindness about him that I've never seen in a boy his age. He's sensitive and kind like his dad, and loves spending time with Doug, doing anything Doug has on the agenda...from shoveling compost into the garden to working with his Dad's tools on anything. He's a very responsible 14 year old. He's quite proud to be one of the two "men of the house."
Lots of changes in nine short months! Haven't they grown! Life is good!
Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
