As I teased Nathan the other day.... he's halfway to 22!  To think he was once so teeny--a little bundle (just a week old in this picture) at Thanksgiving.  Almost four weeks early.

We sure are proud of him!  Eleven years old!  Who can believe it?  He's so tall!  So handsome!

He wanted a dirt bike for his birthday.  He got a four wheeler (on his cake) instead.

And a really cool bow and arrow set!  Which, he was pretty darn excited about!

It is always good when you manage to pick a present that wasn't asked for and is happily received!

Nathan, you've always been our action-packed kid.  We love you so much!  We love your energy and zeal for life!  May God bless you this year--we are loving watching you turn into a young man!  We thank God for the gift of you!


  1. Aw, Happy birthday! My oldest son recently turned 24 and is on his own... hold on tight, mama! It will pass quicker than you could ever imagine.

  2. I don't even want to think about 24!! It seems so far yet, I can imagine that it will be here before I know it.
