I also can't believe that of the 5 posts I've written, 2 of them have been about birthdays. Praise the Lord that Life is worth celebrating. And celebrate we did! After a family tradition of strawberry shortcake for breakfast, Lela Grace made cookies and brought them up to school for him at lunch time, and we had a delicious steak dinner and chocolate cake tonight, along with 13 presents for the birthday boy. I love food. :)
I am so happy for Joseph to be beginning the experience of life as a teenager.
I truly hope that this year will really grow our relationship. I love you Joey. Happy Birthday.
ps. Ok, so this picture was not taken even close to today, but none of the ones from this evening turned out very well, and I want to try to have at least one picture in every post. Mainly because I enjoy reading blogs more when they have a lot of pictures. Anyway, there are the five of us last spring. :)
