20....




My baby, my firstborn, our only son...he turned 20 on Monday. 20!!!! Oh my goodness where did the time go??

And yes that is a phone attached to his ear. His Grandmother called at the exact time I put the cake in front of him and as these were trick candles she got to join in while we sang happy birthday to him. :)









Le' sigh....look how cute mah babee is! This is probably going to be the last birthday we spend together for awhile as he is talking to a recruiter next week and joining the Air Force. Oh boy, on that day there will not be enough tissues in the whole entire US of A.














I got this shot right before the smoke detector went off and my dog lost it. Good times people!! Good times!!

Happy birthday Anthonie!!!!

Poor Abbie. She's a sensitive little dog, huh? And happy Birthday to the oldest. That is ALOT of candles!!

He looks so old, yet so young when you mention joining the Air Force. He is a good kid. If you need moral support on the day he departs, you know where to reach me!

My baby 22yo daughter has been in Iraq for a month. It takes your breath away, and you get used to it. Facebook & Skype and her blog get me thru. Please read her blog, you'll see, he'll be fine..really fine. www.400daysinIraq.wordpress.com

Wasn't he just like 17?
