Last of the "Teens"

Caitlin turned 19 ... her last year to be a teenager.
She and I went out to dinner on her actual birthday during the week.

Yesterday her dad and brother, and grandparents came over for cake and ice cream to celebrate with her.

I can't believe how fast the time goes. Everyone warns you of that when you are wiping snot, kissing boo-boo's and marking off the days until they are independent. I am proud of both my kids and enjoy seeing them finding their way into the world.

If I could though, I would wish to spend 48 hours with them at 5 and 8 years old ... just to see them as little kids again.

Bryan is doing better, Wednesday we will find out if he needs surgery or not.

Thanks Beth =)

SHHHHHH! Don't remind me that they grow up. I'm trying to remain in denial about it. And am hoping that when reality hits me this August when my baby goes to K-3, that she uses a velvet glove and not a cast iron skillet.

You have given birth to some beauties!

You're not old enough to have a daughter so old...are you? You must have been ten when she was born...

Great lookin' kids, huh?!?

It's always amazing when they grow up and turn into really awesome people!

Take care of Bryan!

Dixie: Yep, once they start school ... you see them less and time go so fast. Take lots of pics on that first day of school.

Tracey : Uh, yea, you are right ... I was 10 !

Patience: Thanks, and yes, I think they are pretty awesome =)
