Happy Birthday "Big" Baby Boy!

This is a typical "Adam" moment with his little sister, Amanda.


Today my sweet boy, Adam, turned 24 years old. It's hard to believe that the little guy who was a totally and complete Mama's boy hiding behind me when people approached is 24. Where has time gone?

Adam,

I am so very proud of the young man that you've become. You are such a hard worker, a man who loves his family, God and his siblings. You make me laugh often with your silly sense of humor, but what I love most about you is your heart.

I thank God everyday for allowing me the honor to raise you and I thank you for being such an amazing son. Happy Birthday, sweetheart!

With all my love (as much as the whole wide world and back again!)....

Mom


I'll post pictures of tonight's dinner on Sunday since we are leaving for the weekend to have our early Christmas get together with my Dad and family in Miami. I can't wait!

Everyone have a great weekend!

What a great picture! I hope your son had a great birthday! (and you too! I personally think that the Moms should be the one that get presents on birthdays! They are the one that did all the work! ;D)

Love the inflatable nativity! We have a lighted one that no longer gets put out. The baby was stolen TWICE and now every year more of it will disappear. Not sure if that is a national thing or not but tons of baby Jesus's get stolen every year around here. I started wrapping a brick in a blanket and using that but now we no longer put one out. Seems like now the nativity is gone they have stopped stealing all the other stuff too. Course if money were no object I would buy a new one EVERY year.

Oh, he looks like a fun big brother to have. Maybe a noogie here or there, too, though. lol

I hope you have a safe trip and a wonderful Christmas with your family, Ohilda!!

Love,
