Birthday Rewind

In an effort to catch up a little on my blogging, I had to go back a few weeks to when we celebrated Allen's 15th birthday.

 Michael decided to dress up for the occasion as we feasted on some of Allen's favorites.  Allen is one of those kids who stopped ordering off the children's menu when he was 2!  He has a very sophisticated palate but it's fun cooking for him because he likes so many things.

Josi hams it up during present opening time.

Dad picked out a new  lake toy for Allen that I think he's secretly hoping to use as well. 

Oh how I love this boy!

 (No judging my cracked cheesecake or the fact that I had to use candles in the combination of 14 + 1 to celebrate 15! My Martha Stewart days are so a thing of the past. ha ha)

Then it was time for the teenage boy birthday party which mainly consists of the following:

1) Hanging out...in the kitchen of course!

2) Playing computer and video games simultaneously.

3) Watching some football and being silly.

4) And of course doing what teenage boys do best--EAT--and I mean EAT!!!

It's hard for me to fathom that the little boy who would cling to me in any social setting is now


tearing it up on the soccer field for his varsity school team,

 refereeing for the younger kids' soccer games,

and just turning out to be a young man that I really enjoy being around!

Oh yes, and I think he's pretty handsome too! :)

And in case you were wondering where little Missie Moo was hiding during all of the birthday photos...well, um, you see,uh... she was unavailable for photos because um...

She was on a field trip! Yeah! That's it!
More photos from that fun day in a future blog post!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday to Allen! I know he missed being serenaded by the Allen Family Singers this year. (We have had some murmurings and uprisings with some of the elder singers who no longer feel it is cool.) Anyway, I guess Mr. Allen and I could have still sung....
    Oh well, welcome to 15 and we hope it is a fantastic year!

  2. Your son sure is a handsome young man!! I can see his sweet spirit in his pictures. It's great to get the update from your family and I hope we get to spend some time together soon.

  3. Happy Birthday Allen! What a handsome young man you are!!! Guess you take after your dads side..huh.


    I had to log in under a different program to comment on here....AND it seems I can't even comment on my OWN blog anymore! I tried 3 times to comment on the last thing you said. POO.

    Hope all is well with the Ferguson's...And I hope you're enjoying the beautiful Fall weather :) :)

    I'm thinking of you all <3


  4. Happy belated birthday to Allen! What a handsome and talented young man--who comes from a precious, godly family. Hmmm. Have I mentioned that I have a 14 year old daughter? Just sayin'.

    I've missed you. It looks like your family is doing well.

    By the way, I love the cracked cheesecake and the 14 plus 1 candles. My Martha Stewart days are long gone too!

    Much Love,
