Today our younger son turns 19. It is always fun to celebrate birthdays however this is the first birthday we will celebrate without the birthday boy being here.
We are fortunate that two of the four people in our family celebrate their birthday on holidays (Conor our oldest is on Christmas Eve and John my husband is on New Year's Day). So although Conor went off to school first we have never had to celebrate his birthday without him. A little tough on this mama bear.
I wanted to get the box off to Pierce and forgot to take photos of his cards. He took these photos and texted them to me. We opened presents together on Sunday via Facebook video chat which was better than simply hearing him open the presents!
The card above was created using the Balloon framelit in a variety of colors. This was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.
And this is the card I made for his brother to send him.
We could not be more proud of the young man he has become. Thanks for sharing this birthday with me.
