Happy 14th Birthday, Zachary!

Time sure flies!  It seems like just yesterday I was excited to be having our second child.  It was a boy! And now, here he is.  Zachary is 14 years old.  (Note:  Here's my post about Zachary's birth, written on his 13th birthday.  It talks about him being diagnosed with Group B Strep after birth.)
Having no boys in our family (except my dad), it was a whole new experience for me....but an experience I had always prayed for. I was very thankful for our first child, our daughter, Lauren, but I'd dreamed of having lots of boys. I think I was on to something since 4 of our 5 children (1 stillborn) have been boys.
Zachary requested a gold-themed birthday party with Mexican food.  It's funny that Mexican food has been his favorite since he began eating table food.  It's just fine with be because Mexican food is also my favorite!  For Zachary's birthday party we had stacked enchiladas.  If you're interest, you can find that recipe here, on our family recipe blog.
Zachary wanted his party on the night before his birthday so that he could go golfing all day on his actual birthday.  My husband is taking all three boys and they are soooooo excited!  They're leaving bright and early. I think they're excited about being away from us "girls", too!  I can't blame them, and it is good for them.
Happy 14th Birthday, Zachary!  We love you and are thankful God blessed us with a son.  we looking forward to continue watching you grow as a young Christian teen.  Thank you for being you :).
Love, MOM
