I wrote a few weeks ago, how I couldn't believe my baby (youngest in our family-Hayley Grace) was turning 7. Well, I'm filled with even more disbelief that my 1st baby, Blake, is 15.
Blake turned 15 on Sunday. I remember well, the day he was born. I was 26 years old. Young and naive, I thought I knew all there was to know about life. Boy have I learned a lot since then!
Blake is my quiet and very grown up child. He is abnormally well disciplined and very structured. I don't think we've ever had to tell him to do his homework or to go to bed. He has a schedule and he sticks to it. For the most part, he follows the rules set before him. He's pleasant to be around and doesn't ask for much. Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Well, I agree. I ask God daily what I did to deserve a child like Blake. I'd like to be like him when I grow up! For his
For his birthday, he wanted to go to Joseph Beth Bookstore and just hang out and look around at all the books. After that we met the rest of our family for supper at Blake's favorite restaurant, Wolfgang Puck.
Here he is with his Mamaw and Papaw. (Mamaw is my mother.)
And with Lacey and Gramps. (Jeff's parents)
Blake, Colton, Dylan, Hayley Grace, Hunter, and Hayden
And here is the birthday boy with his Mom and Dad.
We had such a great time. And the fun doesn't stop here. Blake gets his learner's permit this week! He went from driving his little "cozy coupe" to driving his Dad's Accord in the blink of an eye. Happy Birthday B-Man!
One more change in our family that I'd like to share is with the family dog. Princess is her name. She's our sweet, cute, fluffy poodle. Pictured here:
Princess got herself into a little trouble this week. Her fur was matted and knotted. She looked like she had dreadlocks. I took her to the groomer so they could help her return to her stylish well groomed self. This is the result:
My poor sweet cute fluffy dog now looks like a stick! Her tail even has no fur! They had to totally shave her and cut all her hair off. That's how bad her hair was knotted.
Well, friends, I will be gone with no computer until Monday. I am going to the beach with some high school girlfriends Thurs-Sun and then on Sunday night Jeff, Blake and I are going to the American Idol Concert. I'll be back blogging again on Monday.
Have a great weekend everyone. Consider this my Fun Friday Post:)
