This kid...

He is turning 22 today.

Not only has he made me a MOM,

he has given me 22 years of joy and laughter.

So Saturday we celebrated his special day early.

Kaylee came along 23 months later and they have been quite the duo.. LOL

Then our sweet Maddy joined along 10 years later.

I'm a blessed MOM!

How can he be 22?

I mean I'm still trying to get rid of that "baby weight"..LOL 

I pray they never tire of our kiddie traditions.

I'm finding they are enjoying them more now than ever!

  1. Good morning Susie, what a good looking young man! And I remember we first met when he and my daughter had MONO in high school! Remember? Wow that seems like ages ago...we just went to Tulsa and watched her play her last college soccer games...she is now a senior.
    On a happy note, your family is lovely and wonderful. Yay for you mom!
    Have a blessed week.

    1. Oh my gosh Debbie I so remember those days. Seems like just yesterday doesn't it? How your daughter doing? And I think your family is lovely too :)

  2. What a cute son! You are blessed!

    1. Aww thank you and yes I thank the LOrd everyday.

  3. What a wonderful birthday, pretty pictures...and I'm doing the happy dance because we can FINALLY wear sweaters and scarves in Louisiana!!!

    1. Yay sweater weather but the question is for how long? Seems like when we pull em out it warms up before we can enjoy them LOL

  4. How sweet. What a blessing your children are to you all.


  5. Good grief....seems like yesterday they were babies Bbopping around Autumnview. Where has the time gone? My baby will be 22 in Dec.....I don't know what I'll do when she leaves :0/ Miss those days my friend

    1. girlllll don't you know it! Seems like yesterday we were walking those streets with strollers haha. I miss those days and cherish our memories so much.

  6. Well, if you ask me,you are much too young looking to have a son that old!
    You have beautiful children! Happy Birthday Jesse! (That was my sweet Daddy's name)

    1. Thank you Mrs. Judy. You are too kind hehe.. I have always loved that name Jesse. Thanks for sharing that with me about your daddy. Hope your foot is feeling much better.

  7. Oh I laughed when I read "I mean I'm still trying to get rid of that "baby weight" Me too! I have 3 girls 27, 26, and 20 and now a 16 month old grandson. People say that I don't look like I could have children that old...I love hearing that, because one day people aren't going to be saying that lol Your children are so beautiful, and you have such a special bond with each and everyone of them, that is a huge accomplishment raising children, you should be proud.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
