Turning 18

First off, I want to say, I am sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately. We have so much going on that getting onto the computer just has not been a priority.

Zach turned 18 last weekend. How could this possibly be? I don't feel old enough to have a child that is legally of age. Oh well, it happened, I must accept it.

We had a great time with family. We ate all his favorites. Subway sandwiches, fruit, Chinese chicken salad and nachos. A Baskin Robbins ice cream cake rounded out the pig out. This is my kid that watches what he eats and has great self control (something he inherited from his Dad) so this pig out was a great treat for him. I think he has gone to the gym every day this week to make up for it.

Opening his presents. Mostly cash, just what every American teen loves! Check out my dark roots. I SERIOUSLY need to color my hair!

Grandma giving Zach a hug while checking out his new snuggie. He had joked that he would love to have one of those. It was a big hit!

His little sister is trying to blow out the candles before he gets a chance. He was a good sport about that.

The end to a perfect day. Wrapped in his snuggie, computer on his lap (looking at ESPN no doubt) and faithful dog by his side. Happy Birthday Zach! We love you so much and are so blessed to have you as our son!

Just for fun I had to include this picture. Garrett's favorite sport is annoying his older sister. I think there is some rule that says little brothers are required to do this.

She finally had enough and decided to "take him down". She seems pretty happy with herself.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I look forward to connecting more. I am curious to know how you feel about the spread of the ages of your kids. We are also going to have a big age gap and sometimes I wonder what we are thinking about the baby stage again. God know just what we need and I look forward to how it will all work out.

Hi Cris,

I love babies so am excited about a little one again, however, it will be hard in many ways. It has been a long time (my baby is 6) that I have had to worry about a little one chocking on a lego, etc.. However, we put this decision in God's hands and I am thrilled to be getting both a 7 year old and a baby. Seven is one of my favorite ages for boys, so yes, I can see God's hand in all of this and we are trusting in Him. You can email me at and we can talk more.

Hi Megan,

Yes, the snuggie is a big hit. All of the kids want one now (in leopard print).
