Happy 13th Birthday Rhett

Yep. My boy turned thirteen. What?!?!?! He had a wonderful day as documented in these fun photos below. Rhett is a wonderful young man...a very sensitive soul who makes me laugh at least fifty times a day. I kid you not. He loves movies and working at the theatre. He loves hunting and gaming...and tacos. He hates milk and tomatoes. He is a kind young man if I do say so myself. I am super proud of the young man my baby boy has become, and can't wait to see the amazing man he was born to be. : )

I make him his favorite fudge. Every.Single.Year.

There were pictures first...

(He is officially taller than I am! )

and then presents...

(Super surprised!)


(...and oh so very thankful!)

and then there was cake!
He chose his very fave televisions shows...The Flash and Arrow.
And it was chocolate with peanut butter icing!

(He said he had nothing to wish for! I'm sure he thought of something. : ) )

Happy Birthday, my one and only son!


  1. Looks like Rhett had a very happy birthday. Love the cake, and the pictures of his special day. Thanks for sharing. I have an only boy too, (2 sisters) and he is my baby at 41.

  2. I love that he had nothing to wish for. He is one special young man that is for sure. So glad he had a terrific birthday!!

  5. OH great photos Billie Jo! And happy bday to that wonderful young man!
    I worked at the movie theaters through high school and almost all of college. I just loved it too!! And it was a nice bonus to get into movies for free when I was a poor college student.

    Glad he had such a nice day. I sure like his taste in treats too! ;) xo
