A Very Special Day

Today is a very special day in our home, so I thought I'd share a few pictures.

Happy 17th Birthday

(and boy do I feel old)

This is my favorite picture. 
He'd fallen into the toy box, but instead of me helping him out, I ran for the camera. He was NOT happy with me. Although he does have a cute smirk on his face because I was laughing so hard.

Growing up so fast.

Making chocolate chip cookies.
His favorite.

Just like his dad, he loves his motor cycles.

Golf anyone?

He loves to play outside.

Like father, like son.

Last photo taken with his big brother, Steven, before he passed away in 2003.
He misses him terribly.

Typical Teen.

Growing into a young man . . .
WAY too fast.

My little boy MAN.

Happy Birthday, Peanut.
Love, Mom


  1. Happy Birthday Josh! Great pictures and nice tribute!

  2. Wow, Christine! What a special day. Happy birthday, Josh!

  3. Happy birthday, Josh! How fun to see all these great pictures.

  4. Thanks everyone. He doesn't know I put this up yet and will probably be embarrassed, but I don't care. I'm a proud mamma. I'll let him read all your great comments when he gets home from school.


  5. Happy birthday, Josh! (He and I have the same nickname. I'm starting to think 'peanut' is very common.)

  6. Happy b'day Josh! I am sorry to hear about his brother :(

  7. How sweet! Happy Birthday, Josh! (I call my boy Peanut, too!) *Hugs*

  8. Happy Birthday, Josh! Wow, I can't imagine. I just stopped by to check on a fellow crusade group bud. Have a great weekend. :)

  9. Wow! I remember when you put up that teen picture. He sure has grown fast since that post!!! He's a hunk! Happy Birthday, 17! (I enjoyed seeing pics of his bro and your hub, too. xo)

  10. What a sweet tribute. He's such a cute kid. He must have a fantastic Mom. Congratulations to all of you.
