How is it?

…That I now have a 15 year old? I mean really! It blows my mind. Yesterday was teenager’s birthday. We celebrated by going to Shogun, where we feasted on Japanese food and he opened his presents. He got an Alabama Driver’s Manual, tickets to Elton John with his Dad in March, and a weight bench …

Birthday Shortcake

Just a quick shot of Drew before he started to eat his strawberry shortcake. The weekend was a bit busier than I had anticipated and I didn’t get a chance to make his cake, so while we were at Publix picking up shrimp for his birthday dinner, I let him pick out a dessert. I …

Party {eight 12 year olds}

They were really loud and rambunctious for the first few hours, but when it was time to ‘chill’ they did! They watched The Goonies and loved …

E L E V E N {how can that be?}

Today Drew is ELEVEN. I had to type that out to help it sink in. I just can’t believe it’s been that long. With this age comes a lot of change. He’ll transition into middle school in August for 6th grade. He’ll move up to boy scouts in May. In fact, he’s not able to …

Survived!

Well we survived the sleep over. It went great. I think they all had a great time. Lights out was at 2 am, but that didn’t stop many of them from staying up ALL NIGHT! So they were all zonked this morning when I was cooking homemade waffles and bacon. Rob and I got a …

Where did the weekend go?

*Yawn*…I’m so tired! The party with the 5 boys plus mine went pretty well. They enjoyed the surprise which was an Auburn basketball game. He wasn’t thrilled with that at first. Drew got to meet some cheerleaders and got his birthday announced during the game. After the game, we came back and they played. We …
