Sixteen!

It seems to have happened overnight.
While I was looking the other way....


...Fraser went from a three-foot-nothing cutie pie....


...to a six-foot-one-inch young man!!


How quickly the time flies by!
(Don't we all say the same thing when it comes to our children?)


We are so very thankful for the years the Lord has graciously given us
with our third son.  We feel incredibly blessed!!


Fraser's all set for another camping excursion.
He looks happy about it, doesn't he?
Don't even ask what my thoughts are about it all.
However, I am not planning to run away like I did last time.  :)


Fraser, we are so thankful that the Lord gave us YOU!!
What a precious addition to our family you were and are.
It would just not be the same without you.

Our prayer is that you will always follow the Lord 
with all of your heart for all your days.

He alone is worthy of all your praise and dedication.
He is faithful and will never leave nor forsake you. 
Our greatest desire is that He will be the One you live for.  Always.

All our love to you, precious son.
Your Dad and Mum XOXO

Happy 16th birthday to Fraser! It's fun to watch our children grow up. Hard to believe how fast they grow and then they leave home....and get married.....go to college.....Our son married with children...and watching him in Toastmasters yesterday...my how time flies when we are having fun. Thankful for our children that God blessed us with as well. May God continue to bless Fraser and his family. Hugs to all of you!

Happy 16th Birthday to Fraser. He was such a cute little boy, and now a handsome young man. He looks very much like you Camille. I love the picture of the trio (third picture from the bottom), it is so good of the three of them, and also of the three of you , second to last picture. I am sure that camping trip is a highlight of the summer for him. I remember last year when they went, and when you went to California. Its hard to believe a year has already gone by since then. Prayers, hugs and blessings to you all.
