We had two milestone birthdays this year. Noah turned 16 on September 21st and Caleb turned 18 on October 30th.
We had just returned from England one day before Noah's party, so I'm glad he did most of the planning himself. He had a party with four close friends who also have birthdays in September. There were lots of goofing off along with balloons, a pinata, and a cookie cake. It was also "Pirate Day," so the entire party made a trip to Krispy Kreme, where you got a donut for talking like a pirate and a dozen donuts for dressing up as a pirate.
Caleb's party photos are going to seem lame in comparison (he was tired of photos because he had just been out for a senior photo shoot - a convenient excuse to get him out of the house), but he did have a fun party. It was actually a surprise party and about 10-12 kids from church came here for chili and hanging out. For his cake, we did a disc golf theme:
Lastly, Terry and I celebrated birthday this fall, but they weren't exactly milestones. This was just ordinary getting older. But Rebecca got me a very special gift! She self-published a Passover Haggadah for us. She knew this was something I had always wanted. I can't wait to use it next time we celebrate Passover.
