It's Official.....
we're the parents of 3 teenage boys as of today!

HAPPY 13th Birthday to our youngest HOLLAND!

WOW! Where does the time go? Our baby is 13 years old today! Seems like yesterday he was born - a day earlier than expected - a result of me slipping on ice in Iceland and going into labor.

Holland is named after a some pretty famous McTier relatives and is such a HAPPY kid - oops! teenager.

He is our comic relief - every day! Makes us laugh with his quick wit and humor and we LOVE to hear him laugh ~ he's got a great and contagious laugh!!

My hubby had marinated steaks all day and planned to grill out but the birthday boy made mention several times how awesome it would be to go to Georgia Bob's - the best BBQ - pulled pork - restaurant around our area! After about the 3rd or 93rd mention my husband said he was convinced and it was Holland's b-day so he should get to decide! So off we went.

All my boys!! I'm such a lucky girl!

My boys have never been too fond of me taking pictures and especially in a restaurant!

Kendall - being cheeky as usual!

Doesn't that look yummy!!! Unless you are a vegetarian and if you are I'm sorry - it's still yummy!

Of course you'd think the boys would order some BBQ but NO! it's chicken finger basket for them all!!??!! They are fresh made though and not any kind of frozen yucky processed ones. Okay, I know the french fries are!
Then it was home for cake....thank goodness my boys are too fussy about what we make - NOT!
I had a vanilla and yellow cake mix and my son wanted CHOCOLATE with CHOCOLATE icing! Thank goodness they are satisfied with a bundt and don't have to have some special design ~ would have to order out ~ that's not my specialty

Our middle son doesn't like chocolate that much - he'll eat a chocolate bar, chocolate candy of any kind actually but doesn't really care of chocolate cake or icing?? Silly huh? So he said he was eating all of the ice cream instead of having cake. He ended up having a small piece and LOVED it! It was triple chocolate with chocolate chunk icing! I did splurge and had a couple of bites but after our big dinner was too full.
Hope you have a great week!
