Birthday Dreams Come True....

May 27, 2013


I cannot believe it...but our little Rooster is now 16!!!
How did that happen? He is growing alot right now, he is taller than his Mom...
and is hoping to grow more. He is perfectly darling in every way;)
He has the most perfect thick curly hair...he has a smile that melts a heart
and a twinkle in his eye that gets him out of most trouble that he finds himself in!;)
The Rooster is a great friend to all. I love it that when he has friends over,
he is quick to take them into the kitchen and make sure they have something to eat.
When he had his recent surgery...our home filled with his friends and school mates,
making sure that The Rooster was going to be ok! It was a sweet sight.


The Rooster's requests for his birthday gifts weren't too complicated.
He wanted a new XBox...his was having problems... a knife to add to his collection...
a new pair of shoes and some jerky...and last, but certainly not least...
he said he NEEDED a Duck Call from Duck Dynasty. Easy enough!!!
But The Farmer had something up his sleeve....


Several months ago, The Farmer and The Rooster decided to enter the draw for the
Fall Elk Hunt in New Mexico. The Farmer told The Rooster is was unlikely that they
would be some people enter every year and are never chosen.
He cautioned The Rooster not to get his hope up. Well...almost daily The Rooster
asked The Farmer if he had heard if they had been drawn...and again...
each day The Farmer would answer..."Don't get your hopes up My Rooster!"
A few weeks ago, while we were traveling The Farmer got the notice that they had
actually been drawn for the Elk Hunt, but quickly decided to save it as a birthday
surprise for the Young Rooster. The Farmer went to the local sportsman store and
purchased an Elk call and hid it away for the right birthday moment.


After The Rooster had opened his obvious gifts...the ones in the
center of the dining room table...
The Farmer presented him with one more...


He opened the the note...paused while the little cogs began to turn;)...
and then he realized what it all meant and let out a big 16 year old scream!!
It was priceless!!!


You don't get alot of moments like that one...when you have teenagers...
so it was extra fun!! Even though the hunt is months away...he is planning and plotting...
and preparing. The Rooster topped off is amazing day with having his friends
over to cook some steaks, drink some sodas...and play a little XBox...
what more could you ask for when you turn 16???
