Happy Sweet 16!
Today our middle son Kendall turns "16"! OMGoodness where has the time gone!
He came into this world at 9 lbs. 14oz. and now at 16 is 6' 4" which is really no surprise.
At a couple months old he jolted up from my lap, rolled down my leg, landed on his belly on the floor and looked up at me (my sister Linda & my brother in law David) and smiled.  I knew then that this kid was going to be fun (and probably a handfull at times) but mainly full of energy and fun!
We truly have been blessed with an amazingly talented & sweet child. We're so very proud of the young man you have become Kendall and we love you so very much!

These pictures pretty much sum up what occupy his free time now-a-days! He loves to play on his guitar (don't have a picture of him with his newest one - which he got for his birthday) Jam sessions with his brothers tops the list of things he loves to do at 16!


He's always been a bit fearless - which at times has scared the living daylights out of me! 

I used to think I was tall until Kendall shot up to 6' 4" this year!
I'm a little bit sad today that I don't get to spend today with the birthday boy! He's up in Atlanta with his older brother Austin having fun being counselors at Camp Invention. I don't think I've ever not been with my boys on their birthday so it's a bit strange. I know he is with family though and will enjoy the day at camp and then celebrate later with this brother, Aunt LouLou, and cousin Gabby!

I'm overjoyed too that my hubby's surgery went very well yesterday. They took out the lump in his throat about the size of a softball the doctor said. They did take the right side of this thyroid but the doctors said there was no cancer and the left side looked great so they were able to leave some of his thyroid there.  He spent the night last night and we get to go and pick him up today to come home.  Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!!
