My "baby" turned 12!!!



I can't believe how fast they grow up. My son Gabriel is 12 years old as of January 23rd. He is my first child. I think he had a really good birthday. His dad surprised him with an electric guitar! He was so excited. I will post some pictures soon. Tomorrow we are taking Gabe to Dave and Busters to celebrate. I will take some pictures there too. Gabe got about $100 from family and also got some neat gifts. he got some more Tech Decks, a ramp for the Tech Decks, some portable speakers for his i pod, a new jacket, a book light, and the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I guess that is a really funny book. So far he loves it. I think I should read it when he is finished. Gabe is saving up all of his cash in the bank so he can buy a car. He is off to a really good start. He has already been saving his money for a few years. We opened all the kids their very own savings accounts for Christmas a few years ago. I will post those pictures soon!!
