As I am getting ready for the holidays and decorating and planning, it occurred to me that my youngest son is turning 18 next month and my oldest is turning 22 in a couple of months. I started to think back to when they were just hip huggers or shoulder squatters and now they tower over me in height.
I found a photo of the three of us in the snow in Julian California in 1999 and the photo of the three of us last Christmas in 2013. What amazing boys they have always been and what amazing men they are becoming!
I absolutely love the wonderful, crazy, unique adventures we have had together over the years! I am grateful and extremely fond of every single moment.
Here are the photos from December 1999 and December 2013:
