Happy 10th Birthday!


Today, is my favorite guys golden or magical birthday. 10 on the 10th! Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday I was getting up for those midnight feedings and now he is double digits. 
My slugger loves baseball, so I made him a shaker card where I added a few die-cut baseballs to mix in with the sequins. I have to admit that I never can photograph shaker cards well. To me, they are always cuter in person then can be captured in a photograph.
Baseball is America's Pastime, and I can't help, but go Patriotic. I used the Take Me Out To the Ballgame ribbon on his card last year, and I will continue to do so till it's all gone...why...because he picked it out last year, and asked if I ever make him a card could I please use "this" ribbon.

I don't often post personal pictures, but I thought I would leave you with a few. This is my handsome guy (on the right) and his handsome friend. They are both turning 10, so they are showing how old they are going to be.

Where does the time go?
My heart is so full for this boy! Life is not always easy, but he has my heart! 

Little Man, in case you read this one day: I love you, My little fiery tempered, spirited spit fire of a boy. Your presence has always been one that makes a statement, #20.
