Colton turned 14 this past St. Patrick's Day! It fell on a Wednesday, which was perfect since Tony has Wednesday's off. Colton picked the places he wanted to eat during the day and all the boys had a great time together. The best part of turning 14 was that Colton was ordained a Teacher in our church. It was a beautiful Sunday and just look how handsome all my men are! Don't you LOVE their matching ties!!! (just visit Ties in Every Size - from newborn to adult!!!) This is their spring a couple of months I'll show you their summer look! Colton, we are so proud of you and the choices you make. You're a good example and we LOVE you!
Now on to other important things about turning 14.....THE PARTY! Colton rolled out of bed on Saturday, March 20th and typed a message to some friends about a party at 4:30. THAT'S IT! A party......4:30........NO DATE, NO STOP TIME, NO EXPLANATION. I asked if he could get some more information to everyone. He typed that the party was from 4:30 - 9:00. After he sent it off I mentioned that he might want to say that the party was for that day. He rolled his eyes and said "They know." Apparently they did! He had almost a dozen kids....excuse me, TEENAGERS at my home that afternoon. I ran to Costco and grabbed a cake and a veggie tray....Tony ordered pizzas and crazy bread and rented 2012....and VOILA - the party was ready! I teased Colton that they only had princess cakes left at Costco (since he gave us practically NO NOTICE). This was the most masculine cake they had left. For all intents and purposes, Colton thought this WAS a princess cake!

As I called all the kids....oops, TEENAGERS over to sing Happy Birthday to Colton I said "Come on, Schmoopie!" Everyone laughed and Mitch sang Happy Birthday to Schmoopie to him. Colton couldn't stop laughing to blow out his candles.
More laughing.
After this they all went to play 007. Even though it's his favorite game to play, his favorite part of the party was probably ALL THE GIRLS that attended. I'm so mad I didn't get any photographs of them.....grrrrrrr! I'm sure it will just give Colton another excuse to host another party soon.
