Well its a big shout out to all my friends who are Sagittarians and have celebrated their birthdays over the past few days.... I hope your days have been filled with the greatest of joys and full of love.
Today is old matey's birthday and he is one of the coolest & newest 8 year olds i know - and a funny little bugger at that . Today he turned a big 8 and i pulled out some of his baby photos to scrap for him today - which brought tears to my eyes - time flies so fast and we are all so blessed to have each and every moment with each other.....although they are sitting on the desk and not scrapped they will be and they will be awesome ...fingers crossed.
My beautiful son said when he climbed into bed with us this morn .."can i have my presents now if you got me any" - and he said this in a voice that was as if he was not expecting them but thought he best get it over with ...too beautiful... now two of his gifts needed batteries and guess what i did not have the right size and the other gift needed to be charged - and i forgot to charge it - whoops -- but he was cool ...thank goodness for lego is all i can say.
When asked what type of cake he wanted he said " that yummy cheesecake you make mum .. but i want a gymnast on the top"---- WHAT THE!!!!-- a gymnast, i'm good but how the heck was i going to pull that off ....you would never guess ....i did... and he thought it was perfect...mum always comes through - i tell ya i am the best....lol... i made it out of chocolate and it is a gymnast on the rings -- his favourite apparatus apparently - oh and he has had an awesome day to boot, and for all the troubles and fun of the day i got a big mushy kiss - just like your one year old would give ya - except my funny little fellow is now 8...

Now the photos i have picked out to scrap of my beautiful son are sitting on my desk waiting for me to find a bit of time to scrap them - but until i get them done i will leave you with a layout i did of my DD's first christmas the other night.
keep safe and smile
