one one

the littlest one and i have been busy baking and making. the boys had a half day today so we had to get things ready in the morning, hence why i didn't get this post up till now!
today is my oldest noisemaker's birthday. i can't believe i have an 11 year old. but i also can't believe that i have wrinkles and have had to pluck gray hair...but there you have it, all of the above are true.
so without further adieu here's a few things about you on your 11th birthday.
*you love to draw. you are pretty good at it too.
*you love love LOVE pizza.
*if you are in the room and in charge of the TV you can bet that Mythbusters, the history channel, or the military channel will be on.
*you want to try a lot of things.
*you really want to do what is right. (it's very admirable)
*you love to play with your brothers.
*you just passed the arrow of light in cub scouts and now you move on the boy scouts. and you love it.
*you still amaze me how awesome and gentle you are with little kids, and especially babies.
*your cat sleeps on your head at night.
*you have made leaps and bounds in the past 2 years. (what a journey!)
*you've made me cry tears of sadness, happiness, frustration, and joy.

kid, you are so loved. i know the things we go through in this life make us a better person in the next and i just want to let you know how amazing i think and know you are.
happy birthday.
hope you enjoy your pizza and cupcakes.

ps: i will close the giveaway tomorrow, and i will announce the winner on friday.
have a good couple of days!
pps: thanks for all the well wishes on my tv debut, and for all the suggestions. will be counting up to see which project won!

I'll tell you what, you make some good lookin' babies.
Enjoy 11. It is such a great time of life. You get glimpses of the people they will become, but they still want lots of hugs!
My "baby" just turned 17. Now how the heck did THAT happen???

V-
What a touching post, it made me teary. You have done such a wonderful job with your son, what an admirable young man he is, such a good and loving soul.

May his future continue to be filled with love, with light, the warmth of family, good friends and much, much happiness.

Here is a quote I read that made me think of you and your son.

Lucky parents who have fine children usually have lucky children who have fine parents.

Each time you write up something for your kids birthdays, I sit behind my laptop, willing myself not to cry, but I tear up anyway. Congratulations to your kids, with such a fabulous mom!

Definitely a GREAT kid! Tell him Happy B-day from me. Oh by the way... CONGRATS on the new found FAME! :0) I'm sure I can figure out a lesson plan that will include a little "Good Things Utah!" Can't wait to watch... Good Luck!
