Julien - being who he is - didn't want a fuss made over his birthday.
He didn't want to go out and do anything, so we just had family over to celebrate.
I ordered him a cookie dough cake - and forgot the candles -
and he was happy.
Simple enough although I begged him to do something "more".
I felt like he deserved it.
He still adores the camera.
My pitiful candle display was embarrassing, but that's all I could find in the cabinet.
I hope all his wishes come true!
Since Julien technically already had his 16th birthday present, I bought him another one to match.
He adores them both!
I have all these sentimental thoughts running through my mind, but he would be less than thrilled with me if I wrote them.
Every once in a while, I do what's right.
As I always tell him, he's "my favorite oldest child"
and I love him beyond measure!
Happy 16th Birthday to my precious Baby Boy!
