Today was a special day for my youngest son! He had his first ever birthday party and he turned 13 yesterday!  Having a birthday in the winter has its challenges.  This is the first year that he really asked to have friends over and so we did.

He also asked for a special cake – an iPad cake.   So I went to work this afternoon and created this;

Geoffrey's iPad Cake!

He and his friends had Nerf gun wars and played board games.  He had a fantastic time.

It is hard to believe that he is leaving his childhood behind and entering into young man hood.  The time has flown by.  What a blessing he has been over the past 13 years.  For those of you who don’t know, we had a bit of a rocky start with him.  For starters, we were told that he would be a girl, twice via ultra sound while I was pregnant.  He is very much all boy!  To top it off, during delivery, he got stuck and neither the doctor or my husband would believe me.  Needless to say, he eventually  made his way out and we have enjoyed him ever since!

He has developed an interest in programing computers and spends as much time as he can programming.  He has taught himself several programming languages and I rarely understand what he is talking about when it comes to computer stuff.  Home schooling him has been a challenge the past few years!

Happy Birthday my dear son – May the Lord continue to bless you as you grow into manhood.  May you always remember to keep Him first in your life and may you seek Him with your whole heart!

Geoffrey has always been happy!

He has a great imagination and has "conquered" the wilderness of our backyard!

Happy 13th Birthday my dear son!
