Fourteen Years

My son, Gabe, is fourteen years old today.
FOURTEEN YEARS. Where has the time gone???
I can't seem to get the pictures to go in the order I want -- I keep erasing them. We're getting ready to take Gabe out to dinner so I've got to hurry... Here's 15 pictures, one for each year and one to grow on!

February 24, 2012: Gabe and his friends being crazy

He wants a new hoodie, a 12 pack of mountain dew, and a donut tower (instead of a cake). 
He is definitely a teenager.


  1. Happy Birthday Gabe! Those pics are so fun! Have fun celebrating!
    Mmmm. donuts.

  2. 24 packs of Mt. Dew are on sale through today at Smithfield Implement for $4.97ish. We totally stocked up...

    Happy Birthday Gabe!

  3. A Donut tower! Brilliant...that's what I want for my birthday! Do you just stack them or is there a secret? :) I can't believe how grown up he looks in that last photo.

  4. Happy Birthday to Gabe! I was thinking, phewsh...I have a while to go before I have a 14 year old. And then I looked at the dates. And I have two years.


    Gabe looks like an amazing teenager, and you are an amazing mom.

  5. Can't believe you've been a mom this long? You must be an expert!

  6. Happy Birthday, Gabe! I love looking at these photos! they remind me a little bit of my eldest and how she became a big sibling. so sweet. and love that he wants the donut tower. that's funny.

  7. Happy B-day Gabe! Time flies...Don't blink you will miss it. :)
