Sweet Cheeseburger in Paradise, He's 20!


This song completely cracks me up.


The Boy and Me March 8, 1989


18 Months


Why Do They Look So Sweet Napping?


Jordan at 13




Check out this Sponge Bob cake. I used a real sponge, Floam for Patrick and squiggly candles.


Oh, the day of the driver's license.


College


At Cheeseburger in Paradise last night


Burger of the Day was his choice.


Custard cake from Ritter's: Reese Cup ...
That's My Boy!

Happy Birthday, Son
#20!

Awww Happy Birthday to your son.

Funny thing is - we were going to go to Cheeseburger in Paradise today but since it is right near a mall & thought it would be too busy for a Saturday. We wound up going for burgers at Fuddruckers instead.

"Why Do They Look So Sweet Napping?"

Because that is when they are QUIET! LOL

What a great way to grow. Good job , Mom. I love how the cake isn't enough so there is a huge bag of peanut m&ms in the waiting ;-)

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I know you are busy but have you received any of my emails? It may be a problem on my end.

Happy Birthday to your son! My son will be 20 in 3 weeks. Sigh. Where, indeed, have the years gone!

You know, this is kind of anti-climatic after celebrating Zoe's birthday. LOL!!!

Happy Birthday to your son - and March birthdays are THE BEST. (Mine is tomorrow).

What a cutie Patootie!

Chris said...

What a wonderful birthday post~~they grow up so fast, yet we don't age a bit---LOL!

You've done a great job raising a fine young man. Kudos!

Mocha with Linda said...

Never heard of Cheeseburger in Paradise. Of course, since Texas is heaven, that would be a little redundant. . . . :-)

Happy birthday to your boy. He looks like quite the man with the facial hair. I don't even want to think about my boy shaving.

Dena said...

aaawww Happy Birthday Jordan. My girls are right behind you. They will be 19 later this week.

So Jordan, do you have a girlfriend? I have one daughter we're trying to find a nice boy for. Ever thought of moving west a couple of states? Yea, ok, my poor daughter would strangle me if she knew I did this....but well, you know, just think about it. LOL

sara said...

Kim said...

What a sweet post! Happy birthday to your boy :-) That cake looks amazing, by the way. I'm a little fixated on desserts I can't eat these days. LOL

So I caught up on your posts for the week. Oh.My.Word. LOVED the 50s video!!! Y'all ROCKED. Don't think I'll be able to wipe the smile off my face today just thinking about it. Thanks for making my day!

Have you noticed, we never get tired of looking at the pictures of our kids ... our own, friends, family, whomever. There is something special about seeing a child become an adult. Thanks so much for sharing your son with us today.

My baby boy is now 31 .. where does the time go ...

Susanne said...

Two birthdays in one weekend! Partay!

Happy Birthday to your strapping son! Wow, they do grow fast!

Happy Birthday to Jordan!

I am not ready to leave the SpongeBob phase. Reminds me how times flies.

Susan said...

Isn't hard to believe??? I mean I look back and wonder where all that time went?? My DS 2 was born just a few short months after your boy. I hope he had a fabulous day. The pictures sure indicate he did.

Hugs,

Susan

Happy Birthday, Barnacle Boy!

My son will be 20 in April - we can't be old enough to have kids that old!

Heth said...

WOW what a transformation in a few photos, from baby to man. Happy birthday to your 20 year old.

Connie said...

We were pregnant together back when...my son will turn 20 on the 23rd of March. Yikes...how time flies. I have got to figure out how to use my new scanner/fax/copier so I can scan some old photos for all to see. Congrats and that cake looks yummy! Connie

sheila said...

Wow, that was cute! 20 years old. Time flies doesn't it? My oldest was born in 90...and I didn't realize til I read your post how close she actually is to 20. Gosh! Lovely looking family.

Smelling Coffee said...

Oh my goodness... how does the time pass so quickly? Happy Birthday to your dear "little" boy!

PJ said...

They do grow up so fast...where does the time go? Happy birthday, Jordan!! And ... does that cake look yummy. The kid has good taste!!

Jenny said...

What a fun Birthday. But now I am hungry for a cheeseburger and a piece of cake:}

momstheword said...

My oldest recently turned 20 and is in college also. I remember when he drove away with my heart the first day he got his license.

I can't get over how our dogs look alike. Although mine is a brindle poodle she is a bit scruffy looking so people think she's a yorkie.

Andrea said...

It'll make you cry just how fast the time goes!

Esthermay said...

My oldest just turned 24 - Time FLIES! Doesn't it?
Can't believe no one's said anything about your bangs in 1989. So I will.
"Nice. Very nice. I wore mine the exact same way. Nice. Very, very nice."
TOWER Cake: AWESOME!!!

Rach@In His Hands said...

Happy Birthday to your boy! What a handsome guy.

I've never been to Ritter's...back home in WI we have Kopp's Custard, which is so YUM.

Renna said...

What a great looking guy! He was born five years to the day after my daughter.
