Tanner Weston, who weighed 7 pounds and 3 ounces when he was born, my middle son, has turned 16. My baby is in 10th grade, and enrolled in driver's education.  He's proved to be an outgoing, brave, sweet, intelligent young man, and I'm so proud of him. His Grandma and Grandpa got him a card (that looked like Mr. Bean, our cat, pictured above).

Tanner loves to draw, so he designed his own cake.

Some of his friends and cousins gathered together at our place and had an all nighter. Nick and Brock dressed up in costumes for Tanner's entertainment. (By the way, no one was able to catch that performance on film). (Below: Mason, Tanner, Brock, Ashton and Nick).

Grandma Lo posed with Tanner. Grandma Lo is pretty tall, but our growing teenager makes us all look short, including Grandma.

Happy Sweet 16 Tanner!
