A messy thank you!

You guys are awesome!

I received so many wonderful wishes for our little boy, on his birthday. It reminds me how much it means to people, when you know you are thought of. My inbox was inundated with sweet messages from people I know, and only know through the readers of the blog, or Facebook friends on our pages for Gavin. Regardless, they were EACH read to him. I did it in spurts, but he felt the love - and kept singing "Happy Birthday" every time I read it. You all put a smile on his face, as well as mine. :)

We did a low key immediate family dinner. We opted to not do a big party, like we do each year for both the kids. Honestly, Gavin wouldn't have fun. Too many people, too much noise, and he gets antsy, and is not comfortable. I figured I would make his favorite, homemade spaghetti dinner.

Homemade Monkey cards are also the best.

He didn’t care for the balloons, so they stayed away.

But the ice cream cake, that’s a different story.

He also loves hanging out at night listening to music with dad.

I would love to be in more pictures with my boys, but this is as good as it’s going to get after a long day, especially when you’re the photographer.

I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday for my big boy!


  1. Oh it looks like it was so much fun!!!! We love spaghetti dinners at home too! He is such a handsome guy! We are getting closer to having our son placed in our home and the adoption process closing in. Pray for us as we also pray for your family! I shared Gavins Foundation FB Page with lots of my FB friends!!! - Kelli :))

  2. Hello excellent blog! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount work?
    I have very little knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyways, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners
    please share. I know this is off topic but I simply had to
    ask. Thanks a lot!
