  2. No teenagers...You mean you are surrounded by "Adult" men!! That is such a precious picture of the Mister and the boys. Where does the time go. I thought that last night as I was able to visit with the great grandboys and share some love time.

    2. No! Can you believe that? We went out to eat, so no dinner/party here at home. And the triplets don't eat cake! I decided not to make one....first time ever! But they got to eat their favorites while we were out, so they had fun...and we did sing happy birthday to them several times..and Spencer sings along! haha...so cute. :)
