13 at 13!

Since Archer turned 13 a few weeks ago and I didn't do a birthday post I decided to write w/ his input 13 things about him at 13 years old.

1. Archer loves Starbucks. He even has his own cup. Grande Mocha Frappuccino with an extra pump of mocha and chocolate whipped cream. He also enjoys the breakfast sandwiches. And he has favorite baristas - Brett and Becca - he says "they are awesome!"

2. His favorite restaurants are Jakes Western Grill, Nuthouse, and the Royal Fork (thanks to Grandma Annette).

3. Favorite color: Red

4. Favorite food: Bacon - limp not crisp.

5. Favorite T.V. shows: Family Matters, Living with Ed, Big Bang Theory. He also enjoys George Lopez and the Fresh Prince. Funny, funny boy.

6. Hero: Albert Einstein "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

7. Favorite subject: Science

8. He says his favorite holiday is Christmas because he loves to have his family all around him.

9. He is the oldest of all his first cousins by 5 years. He has two cousins named Nicholas. He loves being the oldest. Loves that they look up to him and think he is so cool. :)

10. Archer adores his aunt DeAnne and Uncle Alex. He thinks of them more like a brother and sister. No matter how mean DeAnne is to him he will defend her to the end and Alex is the "coolest" and the best at frisbee golf "ever." I love that.

11. Favorite sports are tennis and tae kwon do.

12. Archer loves animals - his animals, animals in the zoo, your animals. I don't think he was come across one he doesn't like. He use to say he wanted to work in a zoo, but now he just says he wants to be a scientist. I don't know what exactly - but curing disease or something.

13. Archer loves to be comfortable. He has blankets - soft, fuzzy ones and fans - two in his room going at a time. He has his perfect air temperature, body temperature figured out. He loves his blankets so much during the summer he has to figure out ways to stay cool wrapped in the warmest blankets ever. It is a science!

There are many more interesting Archer facts that I could share, but this is all for now.

One last thing:
Favorite quote:
