My baby is growing up!

And no....I don't mean the little baby, but the big guy! Christopher, my second born, turned 14 today! Wow-it seems like yesterday that he was the size of little Luke and I was holding HIM in the rocking chair. Time goes by too fast, doesn't it? Christopher is one special kid-he is very business-minded, having started up his own lawn mowing business already. I think he will surely be an entrepreneur when he grows up! He is full of ideas and loves learning new things. Okay....except maybe when it's algebra! His little brother, John, especially loves playing with him-they both have an equal love for Legos. Though we have had a few rough patches so far during the teen years, I am so proud of Christopher for being such an independent, loving person. He is truly a gift to our family and has taught me a lot. I trust that God has a wonderful plan for his future and I can't wait to see it unfold. We didn't do much celebrating today, as he had his official birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago when he had his party. We did make some cupcakes, though, to remember the special day. We have been having problems with our newly fixed oven , so we were under strict orders from Dad to keep the oven going as much as possible today to see if it stayed on. So we also decided to make some yummy cinnamon rolls to enjoy tomorrow.

That will make a yummy day-after-the-birthday treat. I don't necessarily bake as much as I have these past couple days, but the oven needed to be tested, right?! Happy Birthday my sweet Christopher-I love you so very much!


  1. Wow, I hardly even recognized him! Happy birthday!!! :)

  2. Oh my - it DOES go too fast, doesn't it?
