Our Golden Boy

Happy Birthday Kraig! 17 on the 17th...his "golden birthday."
I swear that he was just born yesterday, and then I blinked and he's become this amazing young man. Quiet and bright, but funny...quoting the best movie line at just the right moment. Honoring his Aaronic Priesthood in every way. So kind to the youngest brother...he will be a great dad some day.

It's hard to believe that it was really 17 years ago that he was born. Kraig was a breech baby born by c-section and had a perfect round head with a fluff of red hair on top. I thought I'd given birth to a leprechaun...which was pretty fitting, considering that it was St. Patrick's Day.

Kraig has chosen a birthday menu that is going to make all of us have a belly ache:
Waffles with Strawberries, REAL maple syrup, and Ice Cream

little smokies wrapped in bacon
and THE cake (dark chocolate, triple layer, ganache filled, caramel frosting, with a layer of ganache over that)

I'm just hoping no one throws up tonight ;)

Happy Birthday Kraig! So when did his hair start to curl? He looks so different with straight hair. Caleb said that he looks like Ben.

I think he looks like Ben too...his hair started getting curly during puberty. That's when his dad's hair went curly too. Ben has the same texture of hair that Kraig did...I suspect he will be curly too.

Wow....Happy Birthday Kraig!!! I remember coming to your little house (off Kooteni??) right after he was born just like it was yesterday. Crazy how life goes by so quickly. Kris you don't look a day older though...I promise:)

The fact that he's turned out so well is a tribute to the two of you as parents.

That cake! It really looks like springtime, like it just sprouted shamrocks.
