Happy 16th Birthday Zachary!

Today is my son Zachary's 16th Birthday! I can tell that this is going to be an emotional day for me. This is a big birthday. He will be getting his driver's license and is buying a car from his father. I am so proud of him. He doesn't want a 'big deal'. So, I got him some chocolates from Mary Ann's which are his favorites. He has asked for money, so we are giving him money for his birthday. I have a cake to pick up at noon and friends and family will be sharing his special day with him.

Happy Birthday Zach. I love you more than I could ever put into words. You have carried my heart in the palm of your hand since the day you were born.

Happy Birthday Zach! He is such a handsome young man... Joey just turned 16 a couple of weeks ago and it is a real big milestone. To think that they will be off to college in 2 years is just a bit overwhelming for me.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy 16th Birthday Zach. I can remember Josh turning 16 last summer. It was so emotional for me. Letting them go in the car by themselves is sooooo hard. Part of you wants them to grow up, but then another part wants them to stay small.

LINDA said...

Happy birthday, Zach.
You have alot of wonderful things ahead of you!
Congratulations, Kim and Tim, on 17months LID. Awesome--you are still in my prayers and I see your word banner on my sidebar every time I log on.

Happy birthday, Zach!! My oldest son, Sawyer, just got his driver's license yesterday -- it was bittersweet for me. I'm going to love the help (he's asking non-stop if he can run errands for me), but I'm so not ready to let go.
