*Saying Goodbye* :):):):)

Hi all....

Adam wanted me to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes :):):):):):):):):):) He came home around 2pm yesterday from spending time with his Dad, and we went out to dinner and then opened presents and had cake :):):):):):):):):)  Brian's birthday is on Wednesday... so he got to open his presents too last night! :):):):):):) I will share photos at the end of this post... :):):):):):)

I wanted to share a lo I made for Crate Paper's recent sketch challenge ... :):):):):):):):)

Here is the sketch :)
And here is my take on it... I used the "Restoration" collection! Loveeeeeeeee this collection! :):):):):):):):):):)



My title is: "Saying Goodbye" and the journaling reads: "We knew it was near the end - We knew it took everything you had left it bring this event together one more time ... I took my chance - I knew that Sue would love to have a photo with you... I asked, you agreed... The smile on Sue's face says it all - I knew this would make her happy ... we miss you..."







And before I get to the birthday boys pictures... wanted to share my monthly photos with my kids in honor of Aleida :):):):):):):) This was in front of Cracker Barrel where we went for the birthday dinner! :):):):):):):):)
 


And now for the PRESENTS! :):):):):):):):):) Adam first! :)
A CD from Brookie :):):):):):):):)

Being a goofball! LOL! :)


Hmmmmmmm ... looks like Adam doesn't want that $20 .. I can take it! LOL :)



And now Daddy with his assistant Brookie :)
Loveeeeeeee this shirt my Brother got him... "Keepin' it Real since the '70's!" ... Brian MAY NOT get to keep this...as I have MY EYE on it! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):)


Looks like Daddy wants his $20! LOL! :)

And a precious photo I caught of Brookie, Daddy and Mr. Dandy! :)

And the CAKE! :)



Being the good big brother and letting Brookie blow out the candles too! :):):):):)

Thanks sooooooo much for stopping by... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):)

    Those pictures of you and your family are wonderful, so awesome that you document it and take tons of photos. I totally don't think I take enough.
