So, today, Jared turns 17! Holy crap time sure does fly. This "circle of life" thing is amazing!
To speed things up and to keep from typing too much
Here's Jared at just over a year old....
Here in Wisconsin, we instill "Packer Pride" as early as possible! He wasn't really diggin' the cheesehead, but he's definitely a Packer fan through and through!
Here's Jared "sharing" the chair with his fat Mom! I totally remember this moment. I was actually playing a hand-held Yahtzee game! Jared was helping....poor kid, didn't have much room in that chair-he had to sit sideways on the arm!
Here's Jared and I up in the beautiful Door County, WI in 2009! Mom's looking hot in this one compared to the last photo! Can you just see the enthusiasm in Jared's face being with the parents!
Here's all 3 of us up in Door County....the same time, 2009. I'm so glad I learned from my Dad who was the best at embarrassing us (all in good fun!) so that I can pass this on to my son! Look how frickin' happy he is here! LOL
Here's Jared sound asleep in the back of the car during one of our many "family fun-filled" road trips!
Words can't even describe how proud I was to train Jared in the world of kettlebells.....he lost 40lbs doing nothing but swings. Now, just to get him back into doing it again!
Jared is soooo much like me that it's scary. Not only kettlebells, but he's definitely a kitty lover! Here he is with one of our cats Scotty! Look how happy that cat is...talked about spoiled!
Scotty just loves laying with or on Jared! Here's his other favorite spot to sleep...right in his lap!
Here's Jared with his "I finally passed my road test" cake and now he's a legal driver......I'll never sleep the same again!
This is Jared this morning.....on his 17th birthday! Still sporting the Packer pride! I made a bunch of different signs and hung them all around the house this morning! He's standing by one of them. He's now 6'4" and who knows how tall he'll be......from 9lbs. 21inches to this! Like I said.....BEST JOB EVER!
On a side note.............I've gone complete Rocky IV for the next few months. I have deactivated my Facebook account and I'm getting my head into full blown marathon training. I may be MIA for awhile, but it is what it is! Time to get ready..........time to go out and completely block all things "non" marathon. I will post on here from time to time, but the "brain sucking" from Facebook had to go......for now, I'll be back!
