Birthday Boys

September third is Jeff's birthday.  While I cooked dinner, Kaelan and Jackson set the table and prepared the dining room.  Jackson wore this suit all day with a white undershirt and bared feet.  And yes, he is a funny kid!   On the small whiteboard, Kaelan wrote the menu:  Roman roast with mushrooms and spinach rice.  We had a mango-lemon-orange cake for dessert.

September fifth was Aaron's 14th birthday.    Aren't they handsome!   They could have dressed up a bit for the occasion, though!  

Aaron requested a fried fish dinner, so that's what we had!  I went with a fish house theme and served on paper plates.  We had fried fish, baked fish, fries, and seasoned green beans with cream sodas all around.  A delicious blueberry cobbler was served for dessert.

Sweet Caedmon!

Aaron received a new Columbia fleece from Devin and Jordan.  He has grown a lot in the last year!

Looking over the birthday goodies with Kaelan.  Aaron received a beautiful hard bound book of missionary John Paton, two Ballentyne adventure books and lots of art supplies. 

I am so very thankful for the man that my husband is and for the man the my son is growing into.  Aaron has on his Dave Ramsey t-shirt, but the message is true.  Every year he is changed a little more.

Hi, Anita! Sorry I haven't been by in a while. Aaron and my son Jonathan are close in age - JD turned 14 on 8/20. He also has sprouted quite a bit. LOVE all the wood in your dining room! Makes it very warm and cozy in my opinion. :-)
