It's a Birthday Day

Nolan turns 13 today! Wow....time is flying...first Jared turned 18 and now this. 2012 is shaping up to be a milestone year in our family.

Ice cream cake is in the freezer.....he's requested CHICKEN LEGS (I always buy the ONLY organic meat at the commissary - chicken breasts), garlic biscuits, corn and tortellini. He surprised me a bit as most often the boys request things like VIKINGS or Papa Geno's or Karinbas..... I'm looking forward to a leisurely day at home and in the kitchen. Good choice, Nolan.

13! Nolan is really a young man. We've watched the progression over the past year with awe. He's gentle and kind and strong and helpful. He's quick to offer me help at home and with the younger ones.  Five years left with this young man in our home - I plan to make them count.

Happy Birthday, Nolan.

(I'm sure photos will follow as the day progresses.)
