Laredo Birthday Boy!

I mean MAN!!

My Sweet Step-son Michael, turned 20 years old on September 22, 2008

He is Autumn. All orange and cozy. I met Mike in 1991, he came to live with us in 1994, and truly blessed my life daily. I am amazed at what an incredible boy he was, and what a wonderful man he is. I love you Mikey!!! For all you are, and all you will be!
He said he wanted to eat at his favorite Mexican Food Restaurant.
(we were ALL up for that:) Smile, Mikey, this is going on the blog!

There were chips and salsa, and of course yummy cheese dip.

Then the Laredo we had come for! (makes me think of a John Wayne movie), looks good doesn't it? (The platter AND the man!)

Thank you, Mike for sharing your birthday, and your life with us! Dad, Grandma, Uncle Brent, and I so much enjoyed celebrating with you!
Thanks for being our goof ball,

for your kindness, always thinking of others first, for the fine example you are to me, for the handsome man you have become! I am blessed to know you! Thank you for being a part of my life!!! And the world is a better place with you in it! Stay strong, stay focused!


And for the Birthday Boy's Step-mom, and Step-Grandma, yummy pecan praline, mmmmmm!

It was a great evening. I managed to get two new mentors there and got them assigned to two girls and they hit it off. It was a Blessing to see it. Thanks for your prayers.
