A Milestone

In VC's baby book, I've keep track of all his milestones, you know: Baby's First Crawl, Baby's First Time Using Matches, Baby's First Hair Cut, Baby's First Curse Word, Baby's First Visit to the Dentist, Baby's First Nine Ball Flash....

Well, now we've got a new milestone to add:

Just look how happy he is :D

The Free Ride ends Here. MB and I realized that there are so many things a strapping 13 year old like VC should be doing! I know I was mowing the lawn by 13!

I want to thank several wonderful bloggers who have graciously bestowed upon me some recent awards:

From the ever charming Danielle:

as well as the Kreativ Blogger Award!

From the spirited and talented Kristen:

as well as the Friends Award!

From the fabulous fashionistas Kristin and Megan at Bon Bon Rose:

also the Lovely Blog award!

And, from the charismatic and ever resourceful Kathie:

and the Friends Award!

I hope that I have not left anyone out. But if I have (shame on me!) - all awards are always credited on my Awards page.


Last but not least, extra special thanks to Sara Bonds from Subjective Beauty for jazzin' up my blog layout!! I hope you like the new format :D

Send him over! he looks like he could use the practice and I could use the break!

What an awards cabinet! And you got The Boy to mow the lawn - Result!

Mine is already charging me a fortune and a half for the weeding it's taken me three years to persuade him to do! What a tall boy yours is getting - All the better for juggling impressively from on high! Love x

Amanda said...

Holy blog awards batman? DId you get all those yesterday! Wow. You are a busy lady!


13 and mowing the yard huh.

Is it weird that my 4 year old knows how to use the snowblower? I do live in MN.

I may be kidding.
