December is almost over and that only means one thing at our house. Jacob has turned sixteen and can now legally drive on his own.

This month has been hectic, as usual. I shopped. I wrote cards. I wrapped. Jim and Adam came to town. We were invited to parties - a birthday bash, several holiday get-togethers, and even a graduation celebration thrown in for good measure. We attended the Jersey Boys play at the Fisher Theater. (Loved it!) The world didn't end. Christmas came and went. It snowed - yay!

Then the 27th arrived. We woke up bright and early on the big day in order to get to the Michigan Secretary of State office as soon as it opened. After filling out and signing what seemed like an overabundance of forms, we were on our way back home with our brand-new, legally-licensed driver in tow. Jake has only driven a few times on his own so far, but I suspect he will be doing a lot more of it, and I feel perfectly comfortable when he goes off by himself. By the way, we also enjoyed what has become somewhat of a tradition - open bowling on Jacob's birthday. This year ten bowlers and four spectators showed up for the festivities at Oak Lanes.

Tonight we will gather at Wayne and Carol's house for their annual New Year's Eve party. Happy 2013 to all!

Sixteen candles.
We made an early morning trip to the Secretary of State office to pick up Jake's long-anticipated and coveted license.

A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
