Damn, I remember that apple camp photo... he's gotten so old!
yeah in the last year he has really developed into a person instead of a kid too. it's p funny
thanks you! my fav part about evan is that he is always smiling. half of these he didn't even know i was taking a shot!
Just did the same for mine last week at 15. This growing up stuff is amazing, but not easy!
man i know. im gonna have to do zane's 12th in a couple days. im gonna cry cuz she is my baby :((((
awwww happy birthday evan! and happy 16 years of motherhood to you hep!!

i admit, i teared up looking at those pictures progressing through the years and sniffling at the thought of my little guys turning 16.
they are all minecrafters. you can't see the cake because it's a bad angle, but it's also a giant creeper, and the sheet it's on is made up to look like minecraft stone texture

You don't even kick your exes out of the house. Why would you kick your kids out? ; )
i was gonna say something like "i am sure he will live in my basement forever", but considering all his school top choices are local up thru phd i think that is probably true hehe
Oh wow, 16 years old. You've just about made an entire adult now, ready to go out into the world. I know this is what we aim for when we have kids but it's so weird to actually get there. Sob.
