My Oldest Son's Birthday

Wow, this month has flown by with all the activities going on. The first of importance, that I can remember, was Ryan's birthday. He turned 12 on December 16!! He is almost a teenager!! I can remember when he was born. We had waited for several years to have children, so he was our miracle child. Doctors had told us we possibly would not have any and look at us now with 4 beautiful, healthy children. The Christmas holidays have been a little busier since he was born. It is so hard to have a birthday party this time of year.

His day began with his favorite breakfast food, what we call Sausage Stuff. Following is this very simple recipe:

Sausage Stuff
2 cans of crescent rolls
1 lb sausage
1 8oz cream cheese

Fry sausage and drain. Mix with cream cheese. Place one can of crescent rolls in bottom of 9 x 13 dish and work together to make bottom crust. Spread sausage and cream cheese mixture on top of that. Then make top crust with remaining can of crescent rolls. Bake on 350 until crescent rolls are done.

Daddy was off for 11 days in a row and we were so glad to have him here for Ryan's birthday. He enjoyed opening his presents!! He recieved 2 Lego sets, a shirt, Waldo book, and money! He used some of his money to buy the Prince Caspian movie that he has been wanting. We all enjoyed watching that together this past weekend while in Kentucky.
Supper was probably his favorite part of the day. His choice of food was steak, baked potatoes, and salad. Daddy grilled up the best steaks and it was a great meal. I topped it off with a banana cake.

Ryan has been such a blessing to our family and I thank God for him.
But grow in grace and recognition and knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
II Peter 3:18a Amplified Version
