Happy Birthday Dylan

Picture
I cannot believe that I have a 17 year old (as of Aug 28th).  How did that happen?  I mean, really?!  When did I become the mother to a 17 year old?  I still feel like I'm 20.  Well, maybe not that young.  But still...!
I'm not sure what you are thinking...but I'm thinking that this came WAY too fast for me.

Yet, at any rate...we celebrated Dylan's 17th Birthday this past week and he had such a fantastic time.
Picture
It began by him receiving a mountain bike in the mail. 
Well, not exactly the style he was hoping for....
{which is a "pink" BMX with white tires}. 
Picture
well, not exactly like this... although I think he would really like this one too!


So he awaits for his mom (that's me) to get it together and send the bike back so that his BMX can get ordered.  Sorry, not so certain it is going to be pink though.  We shall see.

In my defense...I'm not really Wonder Woman {which I totally have my husband convinced of... although I cannot fathom why}
 So...
 I will get it done amongst all the diaper changes & feedings of Dylan's infant brother, potty training of his little sister, homeschooling of his youngest 5 siblings, laundry, oh and decluttering, purging and cleaning of the house...oh, and did I mention dinner...something I know Dylan enjoys greatly....I will get to it then.  Right after I do all of that.

Reserved especially for his BMX that he so patiently awaits
Moving on...

Next came the most coveted item on his birthday wish list....
THE iPOD NANO!


Way to go, Dylan!

Now for some cool tunes to listen to.
How bout a bit of the BeeGee's?
stayin' alive, stayin' alive...
Picture
What?....No?...Are you sure?
Well then how about some GnR?
Picture
Ooooo ok, a bit more towards your taste...?
Picture
Ha ha...

Add a little bit of the Gospel (scripture set for Seminary) to that...
Picture

Add a cool new "Animal" hat
and you got One Cool Happy Birthday Boy...

alright, alright...
One Cool Happy Birthday Guy!

I know...it is totally creepy to realize our children are getting so old. I completely flipped out when Sam turned 18. Now she is at college! Where did the time go? All I can say is that it wasn't long enough for me.
