Sweet 16 Photos

Evan invited a few friends over to hang out and play the Wii.Even though it's winter, we had a DQ ice cream cake. Yum!
Since he's 16 now, a new car is in the near future so Dad got him some car air freshners. I bet he thought there would be a car in the driveway, but there wasn't. I know, that's mean, right.
On to the presents. It's all about the money baby.
Posing with mom and dad. After all, it's our 16th anniversary of being parents!
Out to dinner. Evan loves to go to Texas Road House and get a big, juicy steak.

Isaiah, Carlos, Evan and Harley

Building Runs in the Family

My dad is a custom home builder, so I'm guessing that's where Isaiah gets his love of building and decorating Gingerbread Houses in December. It's hard not to eat the gingerbread houses as we unpack them from the box. It's fun to lick our fingers as we pipe frosting and nibble on red and green candies. I think they put more candy in the bag just for us nibblers. Anyway, here are the pictures of Isaiah creating his gingerbread masterpiece!
