This boy turned 14 years old today! We can hardly believe it... let alone, stand it! The good news is that he is not in a full leg cast for this years birthday! We joked around that he was to stay put, at home, on his rear end, all day long on Jan. 2nd. I caved and he was off to the park with his buddies to play football. He came home in one piece.

His day started with donuts and presents. I am not sure where opening presents at the breakfast table became a tradition but the boys have insisted on it during the last few birthdays.

He received birthday cash, a new ipod docking station, a new church tie, PS3 Fifa 2013 game, a book, the new Giants World Series hat, Nike Elite Socks, Nike shorts, gift cards, a football, a 49er poster and lots of wonderful birthday wishes.

We had lunch at his new favorite burger joint...Smashburger.

He came home from lunch to find his bedroom door decorated. Another fun birthday tradition!

We sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed cake and ice cream. Tanner's birthday cake was inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest! It was a hit!

He ended his day with his birthday date with his Aunt Petra! She took him to dinner at Costa Vida, his all time favorite place to eat. He was then treated to some birthday shopping at a store of his picking. He picked Sports Authority and picked out a new football and 49'ers poster. All of our boys all look forward to that birthday date with Aunt Petra. What a fun tradition!

Happy 14th Birthday, Tanner. We hope all of your wishes come true!
