Happy Halloween and a birthday


I know you have seen it before but this is my favorite Halloween decoration ever.  We have lots planned for today.  Little Buddy has a parade and activities at school.  He has physical therapy and then after a much deserved nap he will trick or treat at the houses right next to us.  I bet he will have fun running around with his walker outside with the big kids visiting.  What is he going to be?  Well you will just have to wait and see.

Also a very Happy Birthday to my oldest son who for the next year will be known as Mr.21!  A big day to celebrate his birth and of course him reaching a legal drinking age.  Hopefully he won't get to carried away with all the festivities.  He has made me so proud.  He works hard to swim at a high college level.  He is maturing and adores his littlest brother.  There is something to say about a young man who welcomes a special needs child into the family with such an open heart.  Yes he still needs to cook a bit before we can let him out into the wild world, but he is on his way to becoming a very good man.  Isn't that what you want for your son, for him to grow up to become a respectful, hard working, trustworthy, good man?

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday to Mr. 21! I'm sure that he is what he is largely as a result of his parents' example. :-)

I can't WAIT to see Little Buddy's costume!

Am I allowed to have a little pout because I have to wait to see pictures of Little Buddy?
Happiest of birthdays to Mr.21!
And many yeses for wanting our sons to grow up to be hard working, loving and caring men. I can tell you that my two, who are well-cooked and grown, are the biggest joys in my life. How they love to tease their mother..it's hilariously funny to be around them.
Happy Haunting, with affection, E.

Happy birthday to Mr 21. I love that your legal drinking age is 21 in the US. Here it's 16 out, and 6 at home! Utterly ridiculous, hardly surprising the country has a huge alcohol problem. Your eldest sounds like an amazing young man, I've seen before how he loves his littlest brother. I hope he has a lovely day, and that your little man does too, no doubt will love all of the Hallowe'en fun. CJ xx

Booo! I love your Halloween décoration! So Funny!

Happy, Happy Birthday to Mr. 21.

Our eldest, who is ten years older than your eldest, said to me recently about his father that the most important thing he had learned from him was how to be a good man. I will admit that I welled up, bless his heart.

Jennifer said...
