This post describes the "Lucky 13"  birthday party that we held last weekend.
And this post tells a bit about my honey.

Also, I'll be back soon with a post on how 
to make the birthday tree ( pictured in # 12).



I'm beyond awe struck that these 13 years have flown so.
It's scary, fun, exciting, unbelievable, thrilling.
And full of love.


I am grateful to link with the Wordless Wednesday
 hops  featured on my left sidebar.

 Until next time,

~Chris

  7. Chris, I wanted to return to this post because I have a Y2K baby too! She'll be 13 on the 26th. I'm with it. It's gone by amazingly fast. Just gives us reason to love every minute of it. Well, most minutes anyway. :) As I looked at your son's photos, I couldn't help but think how very blessed he is to have given life. What a nice-looking kid, and so full of life and love! :)

  8. Congratulations Chris! Your son is so handsome! Love the yearly pictures to chronicle his special days. I too, have a Y2K baby and didn't think to do the same thing. He turned 13 about 3 weeks ago. It is hard to imagine him turning into a teenager. May God bless our boys!
