Our Baby is 18

Gosh, I can't believe it's been over a week since I've posted.  This is just not my Winter to be organized and motivated.  Oh well......   

Last week marked a milestone for my husband and me. Our baby celebrated his eigtheenth birthday last Wednesday. He wanted to eat-out that evening. We had some gift cards that we had received as gifts so he choose Outback Steakhouse which was one of our gift cards. Our oldest son,  Jason,  joined the celebration. Jason lived with us this past year while getting settled financially and emotionally from his divorce. He is now in an apartment so it was great visiting with him, too. 

On Friday, Michael and a group of friends went to one of our malls for dinner and a movie. They returned to our house for an all-nighter with video games and lots of food. I spent the better part of the week picking up snacks, drinks etc. for their celebration. The fellas were great. They didn't sleep, but kept the noise down so that we could. The ate almost everything in sight including an entire cookie cake our friend Kathy baked for the occasion.  After cooking breakfast for the crew, they returned home to sleep. 

It's so hard to believe that our little one has grown-up. He has been a blessing in our life. Our years have been enriched with his presence. Happy Birthday, dear Michael!

Tell Michael "Happy Birthday" for me! Glad to hear everyone had a good time (although teenage boys sound a lot like Formosa termites--eating everything in sight LOL!) Can you tell me why my allergies are bad and it's winter?????!!!??? Have a good rest of the week!
