Sixteen . . .


Happy Birthday Jordon
my youngest grandchild
daughter Suzie and son in law Mike's son
celebrates his sixteenth birthday today
I stopped up at their house yesterday
(about ten minutes away)
to drop off a birthday card for him
I was in luck, Jordon was home
beach and golf took the rest of the family away
I bothered him with some picture taking
and he tolerated it just fine 
one might say it was supposed to happen this way
the sun was bright, the day beautiful
we sat in the driveway
visited, talked, laughed
a special moment indeed
to spend some time together
he has inherited his brothers car for his birthday
I'd say . . . a pretty sweet ride for a sixteen year old
he is one
very nice young man
Happy Day Jordon
I love you over the moon and
back and around again and again
 Love, Granny

A very handsome boy! How lucky he is to have his great-grandmother so close. I suspects he knows it! Enjoy your day! B.

Sending Happy Birthday wishes to Jordan!! How fun to have a 'new' car!!

Our eldest son's birthday is also today {7-21} and he is turning 25!!
When he turned 16, he also got a car for his He got a classic, restored 1967 T-bird.
He showed it in a car show, that very day and took home some prizes and certificates.

Turning 16 is a big thing!!
Hope your Grand enjoys this day, and this time in his life.

I was sure I commented on your post about Jordan and his 16th birthday. Gosh, he looks so young! They are still babies at 16, I don't care what anyone says, Lynne. Driving! Wow! It sounds like you have a really wonderful relationshp with your grandson. They drift from here on so hang on to him, Grandma. :)

O, I'm totally in love with Jordon's sweet smile. Ah, such a magical and special age, 16.
We have 3 16 yr old grandgirls (one set of twins)....
The time, no matter how long or short, with a grand is such a blessing....but, know that already. :)
Love, bj
