So our youngest turned 13 yesterday!!! I can't believe it... I think I feel another hair turning gray, hahaha...
Anyway, we had a wonderful day... We went out to eat and had given Garret an I-Pod touch for his present (We still haven't figured out how to get the music downloaded yet, but Dan is working on it).
Today Kerri made him a special dessert and everyone loves her cooking so he had extra :)
We had went to my mom's a week ago and had a big family birthday party while we were there so now I think we will just have a few guys over to have a WII tournament in a couple of weeks when things slow down...
I can't believe I have all teenagers now... I am grateful that Garret is a wonderful and thoughtful teenager :)
Happy Birthday Buddy!!! We love you!

Our Kerri turned 16 today!!! What an exciting day this was....
Kerri asked for an old fashion bicycle for her birthday. One of her teachers thought this was absolutely toooo funny since she was turning 16 and most kids her age would want a car, or at least a different one than they have. (she has the bug for now)
Kerri wanted a purple bike, but we looked high and low and found this pink bike. She fell in love with it and so we brought home "Lady Katherine". She is so excited!
Our tradition is to go out to eat wherever the birthday person wants to eat, but since it was Sunday, we did not do that today. Kerri's favorite meal is Steak , so we bought all the fixings and made her the best birthday dinner ever!!! Steak, baked potato, salad...etc...
And on top of everything, we got to stay in our jammies all day and watch conference.
It has been a great birthday. She celebrated all weekend long. Kerri was "kidnapped" by her friends yesterday morning at 6:30 am and taken to breakfast then we took her to her grandmothers in Tulsa for the day where we had a birthday party with lots of family.
I can't believe she is 16!!! She gets her license on Tuesday. She can't wait!!! Excitement is in the air ;)
Happy Birthday Kerri... We love you MORE :)
