I have a confession- I did not send out Christmas cards this year. Yes, we took the family photo and I did get them mass produced. Then I placed them aside and had GREAT intentions to get them created and mailed. Well, it never happened. Life happens and with that I am forgiving myself. As each card came to our family- I kept thinking that I needed to get mine done. I then decided about a week before Christmas...that this YEAR- I was going to take a pass!
One thing that does not help is that we have Ty's birthday a week before Christmas! So TODAY... I want to share with you the photos from Ty's 12th Birthday. Better late than never- right?
You know I used my CELEBRATE line of papers to gift wrap his presents!!!! Then added the CELEBRATE ribbon to it. I know... I often wish that I could have my papers as gift wrap. Ha!
We always have birthday balloons and a banner out to celebrate!!!!
I often feel bad that his birthday is the hardest one for me (compared to my other kids!) since it's a week from Christmas. Anyway, I always want him to know that he is special and truly my GREATEST gift!!!! He is my little miracle. Yes, having suffered a stroke at 7 months pregnant with him-- ALWAYS reminds me to be grateful. Each year, I thankfully thank to God for him and for another year that I am HERE!!!!!
So busy with my kids being home. Lots of friends are always over here and it's just my favorite thing-
Also, the coolest gift IDEA ever was given to my girls from their AUNT CINDY (thank you soooo much Cindy!!!!)- she scanned over 17,000 photos of the family and girls and put all the photos on a zip drive for each of them. The perfect gift of MEMORIES...
look at one of the photos-
Taylor is 5 (Cinderella)- Tyler and Krista (cute cousins)... I am so thankful that Cindy did this!!!!
I know my girls spent hours going through all the photos-
Hope you have a WONDERFUL NEW YEARS EVE!!!!!
