I guess I'd better start by wishing my baby a happy 21st! That's right, my 'little' Steven is 21 today :-D I cannot believe how fast those years have flown by. I was feeling a bit sad though because he's been in Milan since January 6th and isn't coming home until March so would be spending his birthday with strangers :-(
I had a bit of a nightmare yesterday...when I was cleaning the downstairs bathroom I broke the mirror into a gazillion pieces! OMG...I really didn't want 7 more years of bad luck!!! I had to think real fast so to counteract the bad luck...and don't ask me why I thought this would do it...I bought a lottery ticket lol.
We'd not long finished dinner when the doorbell went...it was Steven's girlfriend Vanessa who had been over for dinner on Thursday. I opened the door and the next thing Steven jumps out and shouts surprise!!!! OMG...I was stunned and then I started to all teary and he came in and gave me the biggest hug ever. It's so good to have him home although only for 2 weeks...and he brought me a present....5 weeks of washing lol. Apart from his socks and pants he hadn't washed any of his clothes pewwwwww! Apparently everyone knew he was coming home except Vanessa and I. So now I'm thinking breaking the mirror wasn't bad luck and must remember to check my lottery tickets!!!
Steven James born at 5:15pm on February 11, 1991 weighing 7lbs 5 ounces. This is him at 3 months with just a few chins lol
This his Steven last year...all 6' 6 1/2" of him ...he's changed a bit don't you think lol
This is Steven and Vanessa just before he left for Milan
Of course I made him a card which I mailed on Monday but he hadn't received before he left. At least I can show him the pictures. This is what I did...
My friend Elaine helped out with the numbers...she cut them out on her Cricut...I think it was the Mickey Mouse cartridge. I stamped, coloured and cut out Add On Magnum and the cake that comes with it then from the Add On set I stamped the balloon 3 times and Lily. The idea was for Lily to be floating away with the balloons :-D
I hope his card will be at the agency when he goes back
Of course I wasn't expecting him home so I've no fancy cake or ballooons which I would normally do for such a special birthday. I'll be running around today trying to get something sorted. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to show you tomorrow :-D
Right...I'd better get my skates on. I hope you have a great weekend...I know I will now my baby's home :-D
Catch ya later x
