Happy Birthday, Easton!
The layout you see pictured here today is the layout I did after the last birthday we were able to spend with Easton (until today, that is!). He turned 19 in December of 2007. He left less than a month later for his 2-year LDS mission. As many of you know, we as parents don't get to see them during those 2 years, and only get to talk on the phone on Mother's Day and Christmas. Thank heaven for those weekly emails! Now that Tannon is on his mission, I am experiencing that all over again.
Easton returned home in January of this year and what a year it has been between then and now! He got home in January, began dating his wife in February (although they knew each other growing up, they never dated), got a job and worked until he left for Cedar City for college and his football scholarship in June, proposed to Daysha in August, finished a semester of school and his first college football season, and was married on December 17. WHEW! What a whirlwind.
Easton, I am so very proud of you for so many things: for the man you are, for serving a mission, for choosing such a wonderful wife, for working so hard in school (3.92 this semester!) and football (go, T-birds!), and for the honorable priesthood holder and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that you are. I love you! Happy 22nd Birthday! Enjoy this montage of some of my favorite photos of Easton growing up. I still can't believe my little boy is a married man!
