Happy Birthday to my son! :D

Hi everyone and a happy Wednesday to you! :D
Here is a card I kept meaning to post, but what an appropriate time as yesterday was my oldest DS' bday!
First the card:
The image is by Whimsie Doodles and is so versatile! It's in the store right now, can't you think of a gazillion uses for it? Christmas? Girl bday? All embossed in white for a wedding card? :D
I just love that big bow, I don't think I'd ever open up the present if it was wrapped that pretty.
I used the current layout by Sweet Sunday Sketch as it is so adorable. I love that little added semi-circle element on the bottom!

And now here are a couple of favorite pics of my 14yo son:
I swear kids look so much older than what they are, don't they? Back in MY day, if you were 14, well, you looked it. haha! All the dweeby features possible - glasses, pimples, braces. Times are surely changing, you'll never see a pic of me at 14. :P
These two pics sum him up so well - he's always making time for his siblings (and 5 is not easy to divide your time with!). He keeps telling me how sad he is that Isiah will only be in Kindergarten when he has to go off to college. :(
Kalil is truly such a sweetheart, yesterday after football practice he hung out at the bowling alley with a bunch of his friends (guys and girls). I asked him if he got anything and he replied, "Yes, a really nice day." Awwww!
And then after his cake, he hinted to me that his wish was for his dad's happiness. (FYI - DH isn't unhappy at all, he just had a really tough week...) What a wonderful way to end the day!

Thank you all for your mid week visit, I truly appreciate it! Now you go and have a wonderful day. ;)
*Love and Aloha*

Happy Birthday Kalil - gorgeous card but sorry Joni the photos are even more gorgeous. Can't you just tell that those two love each other to bits?

Have a fabulous day with your family.
