He's no longer a teenager!

Daniel's 20th birthday was yesterday, January 3rd! I can hardly believe he is twenty years old! How the years have flown by, especially the years between sixteen and now! It
was like once he got his license and that measure of independence the years took off like a flash! We treated Daniel and Erin to lunch on Saturday at our annual New Year's lunch. Yesterday, because of his and Erin's busy schedule, she got him an ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery and I fixed him Dutch Potatoes and Baked Chicken which Ed dropped off to them on his way to Athens yesterday afternoon. They both looooove Dutch Potatoes. I'll have to post the recipe here soon for those of you who would like to try them. We also got him a beautiful card and put a "little something" in it for him. *smile* He called us and thanked us for everything. The Lord has truly blessed us with a good son and daughter.
Daniel and Erin are having a little contest. *grin* Mid-Winter Youth Retreat is the last weekend of this month, so Daniel and Erin are endeavoring to lose a little weight before then. So, the one who loses this contest, only gets to take THREE pairs of shoes to MW. And this is a big deal, because last year, Daniel took EIGHT pairs of shoes to MW. (I told you he is high-maintenace!) I'll let you know who wins!

Eight pairs of shoes! Tell him I'm going to have to rough him up a little bit, girley man.d

LOL I know, I know. I don't know where he gets this obssession with clothes and shoes from. It certainly isn't from me or his dad! I just keep telling myself that it could be worse: He could have some other terrible, disgusting habit, so, in light of that, the clothes thing isn't so bad, hm? *grin* Oh, but you do have my permission to hassle him about it! LOL
