my baby boy is 16!

How did that happen?

Today was Joseph's birthday. He is actually old enough to get a driver's license! He isn't getting one yet, but he's old enough. *sigh*

He went over to his buddy's house for band practice this afternoon, then we went out for pizza (His favorite meal). John, Kathy and Derek met us there. It was a nice evening. Pizza and beer for the adults, and soda for the boys. I brought his cake to the pizza place & we sang (very loudly.....embarrassing him is part of the celebration)

He opened his gifts when we got home. We bought him a tweed 3/4 length coat. It fits his 'look.'
We also got him an ukelele. A real one. It sure sounds different than the toy one he has now. when we get to Pismo Beach tomorrow, I'll go to the music store where Chris got the uke and get a music book for it.

We're leaving tomorrow for Pismo Beach until next Tuesday. I will be making New Year's dinner there this year.

It was so nice having Chris home for Christmas. It felt so relaxing. Now, it's back to the travel grind. We have been having some really windy weather the past few days. I wonder if the surf will be high down there? I'll take he camera in case it is.

Yes, pictures of the surf would be great!

Happy Bday little, I mean big man!

The twins aren't driving at 16 either.

Pley said...

Happy Birthday, Joseph! I can't believe he's driving age either, mom. These kids are growing up MUCH too quickly.

Beth said...

Happy Birthday Joseph!

Robin said...

When did these kids get so grown up! Beth has a bigun, and MY bigun will be 18 also in a couple of months and she finished high school early.

Am I really that old?

Pez said...

Pley said...

When trying to collect assets it is usually a wise scheme to start a savings or investing course of action as early in life as achievable. But don't despair if you have not thought of saving your capital until later on in life. With hard work, that is experimenting the best investment vehicles for your assets you can slowly but surely increase your finances so that it adds up to a big sum by the time you wish to retire. Observe all of the applicable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A researched and diversified portfolio of investments in different asset classes will make your money advance throughout the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
