Sneak Peek and a HUGE milestone for ME!

Ok girls... This first sneak peek is in honor of Carol... She was hoping for this kind of non-descript picture so here you go girl :) Love ya Carol.

What is the Mile stone you say?

MY OLDEST CHILD IS "16" today! Were did the time so go? I was just 16 myself.. We are spending the day with him.. Going to lunch and dinner and just having a little one-on-one... Luck boy. 

This boy is so OBSESSED with FORD TRUCKS! One day he will have a giant red Ford truck and it will be plastered with "University of Utah" all over it. We don't even own a truck just a mini van and Honda.. So this idea is all about a teenage boy. Not that we don't love trucks.. We just commute and they are not great on gas and carpool for DH and I both. I have always loved trucks. My dad still has and always has had trucks.. In fact Andrew covets his Giant diesel 4 door RED FORD TRUCK. He has been trying to inherit it for years...  Andrews other obsession in life is the "University of Utah" The boys in the family all have season ticket to all the football games.. His room is a Shrine to the "U" he proudly flies his "Utah" flag in a "BYU" obsessed community! Way to stand up strong for what is good and true..(he,he) Andrew want to attend the "U" when he is older..(older that is like 2 years away...oh my.) My husband and I meet and both  attended the "University of Utah" . So we love our "UTES" as well..

So this card is just all about Andrew! We love ya bud..

Awesome job on the license plate card, Brooke! I'll think I'll be in shock when my little one turns 16. When he was 4, he was already asking about learning to drive. Time passes too quickly. Enjoy the day with your son.

YOU have a 16 year old?? No way! Awesome card, though! Older boys are the hardest to make cards for, but you made it look SO easy!
