I know, I know...its been about 3 months since I have updated the blog. But here I am. Finally:)
Joel turned 12 on December 6th. I can't believe he is 12...One year away from being a teenager!!! NO!!!!! I can't be a mother of a preteen?!?!
We had a nice night. Because his birthday was on a Tuesday (school day), we took it pretty easy. And since he is pretty much (by his standards) "too big" for a birthday party...we just had a family night. I made him his requested dinner: asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes with chives, shrimp and flaky biscuits. This is what he wanted to eat. I believe he enjoyed it.
And as you can tell, Josiah loves the shrimp too:)
After dinner, we went ahead and give him his present(s). Terry and I decided that since he is 12 now he would be able to get his own key to the house. As you can tell from the pictures, he was very excited about it. He feels very grown up now:)
And then he got the big present:) Well, something he could actually do something with. So, can you guess what it was....
You guessed it, a Lego set... The General Grievous Starfighter. You can give him any kind of Lego set and you know that he will be happy:)
One Week Later...
It was Terry's birthday. And not just any birthday...
A Very imorpotant birthday.
Yes, he turned...
(As you can tell from the picture, we didn't have a "5" candle so we had to make it a math problem).
Another day that was nice. We didn't do a "huge" thing but had a nice family day celebrating Terry's birthday. We are so thankful for him. He is a wonderful husband and an awesome father to our 4 children. Thank you Terry, for working so hard for us so we can do the things we love:)
