A Teen No More!

Our first child, Maria, became a teenager in 1994. That was 19 years ago! I think we had a year when our kids were 12, 20 and 24 but I think we have parented a teenager for 18 of the last 19 years. Yikes! We should be getting some kind of award, don't you think?

Anyway, today is Sam's birthday! I can't believe it has been 20 years since we welcomed him into our family. He has actually been a very sweet and easy child to raise. His good nature is why I feel he will still love me even if I show you this photo...


Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
Oh wait, I shouldn't use that term here as it may embarrass you.
Happy Birthday Samuelton!
No?
Happy Birthday Sammer? 
Sammy Boy?
I suppose that is embarrassing as well.
OK, OK...

Happy Birthday Sam!
