In celebration of birthdays - I thought I would post about my son, Daniel. For the last two years he has been serving a mission for our church in Jacksonville, Florida! His two years was up last Tuesday, and I had the opportunity to fly over and spend the week with him, visiting some of the old areas he had served! My favorite part was meeting some awesome people that have fed him, driven him, helped him, and loved him while he was away from home. The following layouts are from his Mission Album, they aren't anything special as far as scrappin technique, but this layout was his 21st birthday. I remember being really sad the week of his birthday because he had just been transferred to a new area and I was worried nobody would know it was his birthday and he would have nothing special happen that day.
Come to find out the following Monday, on email day, he sent the awesome pictures I used in the layout of the awesome Lear Family! They were celebrating two birthdays in their family, and added Daniel to their family party! I seriously sat and cried as I looked throught the pictures, knowing he was well taken care of, and got to party it up to celebrate his 21st birthday!!
The first three pictures on page one, left side is the family all singing "Happy Birthday!"
The side side is the low country boil they had for dinner, a southern favorite!
On page two, he is showing all the birthday letters and cards he receiving in the mail, matching t-shirts he made for himself and his best friend Lacey, and a blanket my friend Terri made and sent him (it has gators all over it!)
My birthday is Sunday, the first time ever to be on Easter!! (that I can remember anyways!). It's going to be one special day as Daniel is speaking in church, our home will be filled with friends for the weekend, and we end on Sunday night with an open house for everyone to come see him for the first time in 2 years!!
