Eighteen...

I'm not sure how it happened but my sweet Alex turned 18 last week...
(Those cupcakes were so yummy. From THIS local bakery. YUM.)



It is really difficult to put into words how I feel about Alex. Anytime I question anything in my life, I think of Alex. He is proof that God knows what He is doing and I need to trust the path He has for me. I've known Alex since he was ten and he is one of my greatest joys. He is proof that teenagers can be mature, sweet, and big hearted. He amazes me every single day and I know that he was put on this earth for great things. I'm one lucky girl to just be part of his life. Happy Birthday Alex. I love you more than you'll ever know. :)



So, for his birthday, Ted and I decided to surprise him with a t.v. for his room and let him play hooky from school (ssshhh..don't tell LOL) ....





Needless to say, he loves it...

We also celebrated with a birthday dinner with the family. To thank everyone for the gifts they brought, I whipped up these Thank You cards. Loving the new Jolee's embellishments! The guitars seemed cool enough for a teen...

A closer look...


I also finished off the inside with a "You Rock" sentiment and had Alex write the thank yous...

Okay. Must go pack up to get ready for a scrapbook day with Jennie tomorrow. More soon...

Happy Birthday to Alex! I'll bet he is enjoying that TV in his room (my son has been begging for one but I keep resisting...of course, he is only 12). Anyway, your thank you notes are perfect, and I DO love those guitars! Great set...thanks for sharing!
