Seems like yesterday...Another Birthday

How did it happen?

Where did the time go?


At some point my boy went from this...

To this...

My son turned 16 this week!!!

As I look back over the years, I'm again grateful for this blog. I look back on past birthday posts, and get to relive every heartfelt moment. THIS is the reason I started this blog. I'm not great at scrapbooking, but man will my guy have something to reflect on in the future...hopefully. I have officially commemorated 4 of his past birthdays here. And I am GRATEFUL!!

Take a walk down memory lane with me...

There's this "Letter to Ty" when he turned 12.
I cried when I re-read his 13th birthday here.
And then of course I was tardy for his 14th birthday.
And then there was FIFTEEN?!?

My son is becoming a man. He is working on his Eagle project, he has a job, and he's getting good grades. We still remind him he has to do his chores, and his room is never my son is still a kid in many ways. THANK GOODNESS!!

Grandy is truly GRATEFUL!!

Aww.....Happy Birthday!

I am so glad I started blogging for the same reasons. My mom has already collected all of the football & baseball reports that I wrote to create a scrapbook (something I also would never do!) that I know he will treasure later.
