Today,Cody was ordained an Elder
in the Melchizedek priesthood.
In exactly one month he will head to the MTC in Mexico.
How I know that Cody is grown up enough to go on a mission is that he will now pose for pictures with a smile on his face :)
(Couldn't resist basking in the glory of another win...)
Seriously, the Backus family is top notch.
Following the ordination, we celebrated Cody's 18th and
Christine's 12th birthdays. Pretty landmark ages for both.
Hard to believe that Christine will be a Beehive!
We really are blessed to have so many cousins so close by.
You wouldn't believe what it took to get this picture....
This took nothing at all, #fakesmile.
It was a beautiful Sunday.
So lucky to have so many great missionary cousins who are just amazing.
