Today we enter the realm of parenting a teenager.
The cake has the logo of AJ's favorite professional soccer team - Chelsea F.C.
Cool Kentucky gear from Aunt Buffy
AJ's favorite player - Didier Drogba
AJ's headphones broke last week, so the girls picked out these for his birthday gift from them.
AJ has been wanting a speaker for his iPod so he can jam his tunes in his room. His favorite lately is Johnny Cash. Hilarious to hear him singing, "And the tears that I cried for that woman/Are gonna flood you, Big River..."
Chelsea t-shirt with matching shorts and soccer socks from Mom and Dad
Essie loves the blue cake.
And the requisite "awwwww" picture from AJ's first ever birthday party, four years ago. (Chloe couldn't resist "helping" show how it's done.)
