Tyler's Ordination

Tyler turned twelve earlier this month as you know. In our religion, when a boy turns twelve, he can receive the priesthood and be ordained a Deacon. Tyler wanted to be ordained and has been living the commandments as best as he can. So on September 14th, he was ordained a Deacon by his Grandpa in our Bishops office surrounded by family and other Elders, Priests, Teachers and Deacons. It was exciting for him and he couldn't wait to exercise his priesthood by passing the sacrament at church. Sydney, Tyler, me (Julie) and Dallin after Church. Ryan dislikes having his picture taken but by the time we had gotten around to taking pictures, he was already upstairs taking a nap! That's a good way to get out of pictures!
