Happy 15th Birthday Favorite Son

The joy of having only one son is that he quickly becomes your favorite son.  No jealousy involved.  I've said it before, but it bears repeating; "Mr C was such an easy baby and toddler and he made my entrance into motherhood such an joy!"

Mr C has brought us great blessings and we are so thankful that God saw fit to put him in our family!  It does not seem possible that we only have a few short years left when he'll be living in our home full time.  I'm not even going to think about that yet!!

Since C's birthday and my husbands fall within days of each other, we got to celebrate double over the weekend.  P's birthday is actually St Patrick's day and we enjoyed a fun day outside in the sunshine and then a nice dinner out.  I'd love to show you the pictures, but my "brand new camera" broke that morning and photos were dead to me the rest of the day! I was heartbroken. Even so it was a fun birthday and we had a chance to spoil our favorite father and husband. 
Mr C's love language is trying out new restaurants.  No kidding.  He would love to take a road trip to visit the Diners, Drive In, and Dives' in the Midwest. C really wanted us to take a road trip to Chicago for Taco Fresco, but we are not that nice. We finally decided to try Sunday Brunch at a hip cool Fresh Mexican Cantina and ate outside on the patio!  He was smiling the whole time.  Great salsa, queso and the Brisket Tacos that were worth every bite. 

We called this birthday his "Golfing Birthday" as he got a new driver, a wind jacket for the course, and some new golf polos.  Nothing like a theme to keep a boy happy.  On his actual birthday, March 20th, the first day of spring, I surprised him by bringing 75 fresh hot chocolate chip cookies to school for him to share with the entire freshman class.

One of his friends said he should hide them from the guys, but being the kind hearted boy that he is, he shared the entire box!  Happy Happy 15th Mr C.  I promise we might let you get your learners' permit this summer.

 We are still trying to come to grips with the fact that you are no longer a five year old little boy playing with Rescue Heroes and Thomas the Tank Engine Trains.
