The family enjoying an evening at our house followed by a meal out which was lovely to celebrate the occasion of our son's 16th birthday.
hurrah! MONEY! always a safe but popular option (and that was just us as his parents!!) our son opening cards and gifts on his birthday. A very generous cash gift from no.1.brother, Martin, went down very well apparently - although I missed this and according to the family the cash is well hidden (from me!) which is probably wise!
Our no.2.son baked a cider cake which was yummy! and yes we still do the happy birthday/blowing candles although on this occasion I ran out of candles and we settled for 6 instead!
A very popular and exciting present came from my no.2.brother, David, who purchased a half hour flying lesson gift and this was very well received by our son who is thrilled.
Me, wishing our lovely son who IS no.1. as well as being no.1.son a very happy 16th birthday, I couldn't ask for a nicer son who just delights us and long may THIS continue!!
