Ethen's 10th Birthday!

Today marks a major milestone. Ethen has hit the double digits and is now officially 10! I can hardly belive it. He wanted Olive Garden for dinner so that he could indulge in his favorite meal of cheese ravioli and we topped it off with homemade cream puffs for dessert. He will have a real cake when he has his party this weekend. Ethen is growing into an amazing young man and we are so very proud of him. He is doing awesome in school and is so smart and responsible. He is a wonderful help with the younger kids and brings us such joy.



He was totally surprised to get this leopard gecko, yet to be named. We all think it is really cute.

He has grown up so much. I thought that when I watched him wake board this summer. Wow, double digits. I am still trying to comprehend Ali getting baptized this year. time flies! We need to just hang out and let our kids play one day and eat lunch or something.

Ethen, How I've loved watching you grow. What a blessing you are to my life, and everyone else who loves you,too! I remember your first cry when you were just born and how it dug a spot deep in my heart!
That is one cool gecko! You've lived a whole decade, Ethen! So now you are in your second decade. I am in my 5th. When it's said like that, it doesn't seem like we are so far apart! Love, Nana
