You chose Us -- aka today is Brian's Birthday!

Hi everyone -

Yep! Today is Brian's birthday!!!! And just like for Adam, I made a layout of him to celebrate his day!




I made this using the NEW Nikki Sivils "Messages" line!! Love love love this line!

For my journaling, I talked about how wonderful Brian was when we first started dating, I was a single Mom, and it's not always easy for men to come into a ready-made family.... so I have the most respect for him for "choosing us" -- (If you want to read the journaling - just click on the photo to make it bigger)



So Happy Birthday to my mostest wonderfulest Hubby Brian! I love you!

And before I head out, I wanted to share some photos from Adam's birthday celebration the other day!

We took Adam out to dinner at one of our fave Mexican restaurants! Before dinner I got a photo of Adam and Brookie!

Adam with his birthday dinner!

Adam took this photo of me and Brian! 

After dinner, we went across the street to McDonald's for some ice cream!

And Brookie played in the play land for awhile!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

    I love the family pics--I wish I had a "play land" when I was growing up--the first time I went into one (or a ball pit) was when I was 15! We didn't get a McDonalds in our town until we were almost a senior in high school! LOL!
