This boy of mine……how is it that the Lord sees fit to give the best gifts when you didn’t even ask for them?
Jordan was my surprise baby, and I will never receive a better one than this one right here.
Jordan, he has such strong insight beyond his years that SURPRISES me all of the time.
Jordan is my grateful kid, he very rarely asks for anything and it makes me want to give him everything.
His eleventh birthday was fun. We invited all his best buds to eat Jordan’s pick of the meal that included sloppy Joe’s with mac and cheese with pop. Yum-O (ew!)
Then what do 11 year olds do for their birthday? We go to SKATELAND!!!!! Does that bring back ‘ole memories from the pass all of you who are (cough) skaters from your years pass? It was a scream, they were troopers, maybe a few bruised behinds but they got the hang of it being the athletes that they are and were racing around the track.
The pictures are blurry because I couldn’t stop laughing!!! A little shaky hand going on there.
Next morning a little biscuits and gravy.
Then…..his real birthday! All my boys and I sat down for all of Jor’s favorite things. Homemade meat balls, mashed potatoes and gravy, shrimp, asparagus, and pop. This was monumental we rarely get to sit down for a meal all together anymore. This made my heart happy.
And four layer tort…….with a ‘Happy birthday’ song to go with it.
How I love this boy, thank you Jesus for this SURPRISE!!!!!
