Big Boy's Birthday

As is fairly traditional for Big Boy's birthdays, we send him on a hunt for presents with written clues set to poor prose. It may be a bit long and painful to watch if you aren't family and seriously interested in us. Mostly I posted these so my hubby could take a peek at our 15 year-old's birthday that he missed. It was mysterious and chaotic with episodes of crying and hiding under covers. Just what family life is all about, (at least ours). Happy Birthday to my 15 year old boy. I can't believe how fast it's gone by...

What a fun party. You are such a creative mom! I love the little hunt, your other kids seemed so excited about it too. Thanks for the videos, it was really neat to she your kids in action. It is kind of sad that I have not met them before, but blogs help make things seem a little bit closer at least. They sure are adorable children though.

Thanks Julie (and all y'all-Texas term). If you don't know Home Star Runner then the cake is totally wasted on you. You can tell my friends that have teens appreciate the cake. Go look him up online, he's something else!

Happy birthday, Big Boy! I can't believe our cute little boys from the apple orchard are turning FIFTEEN!

You've got such great kids--due in large part to great mothering I'm sure.
