Edward Williams Carter


today i had lunch with two of my favorite guys
Eddie and Sweetie

12 years old!


on the way to lunch he recited the preamble
and spoke of his love for airplanes


we ate here
he ordered over the phone
and knew exacting what he wanted


he can hardly tolerate this dude...Justin Bieber
but, has found that Taylor Swift is growing on him

he asked about where he got his tendency to tease...
we traced it back to great-Grandpa Gerald...

and he told tales of pestering Ozma (a classmate)...
boy oh boy can he get her going

he spoke of a time that his dad had worried him...
his dad said,
"a tornado came and pitched the Gold's house
all the way to Florida"
we had a good laugh about this little joke


his all time favorite song
by Ozzy Osbourne
for now

how after a rocky night's sleep
due to birthday excitement
his new alarm clock
woke him up to the Beatle's singing
IT'S BEEN A HARD DAY'S NIGHT
then he chuckled


he got some "Jabo" marbles
he is a collector


and he got this cool little car
he is considering collecting these as well

12 years old!

i want to be happy about his growing up before my very eyes
truth be told
i'm a little sad
and a lot blessed

he is
wonderful
fun
all amazing
boy

Happy Birthday dear Edward
Happy Birthday to YOU!

So sweet. You are a wonderful grammy!

I laughed when I read about Justin Beiber. Isaac also takes pleasure in intensely disliking him.
