Is it me... or are the deacons shrinking?

I went to my family ward in Kaysville today for church. The deacons look like 5 year olds. It was really, really strange. I remember when I was in primary I thought the young men were soooooo grown up and mature and dreamy. Compared to us though, they were.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm a grown up or something now.. I go to Relief Society, and I enjoy it. I date guys who have been back from their missions for a while. My friends are married and starting families of their own.
My little sisters are almost all grown up too.
The family dinner table is filled with adults. I mean, we still act like 10 year olds for the majority of the time but in reality there is no kid's table anymore. Weeeeeird.

My Christmas list is shorter, I clean up my own messes, I work as much or more than I play, and I love hanging out with my family. I eat fruits and vegetables without being forced, I love all 3 hours of church, I love going to the Temple, and graduating from school actually costs big money. That and the caps aren't made of paper.
Oh how the times have changed. But life is just pretty much awesome when you think about it. I'm a grown up. But I'm new at being a grown up. You could say I'm a baby grown up.

... And I still have a looooooot to learn. The real question though, is whether or not I'll be able to keep up with the cake habit of my youth.
