Today is our “baby’s ” 22nd birthday! Hard to believe that that cute little baby who decided to pop into the world 6 weeks (at a whopping 5 pounds 10 ounces) early is now 22, a college grad and a fabulous young man! We are blessed. Of course a mama gets a little nostalgic around birthdays and remembers all the cool parties along the way. Doubt that Aaron would want that McDonald’s party anymore! I always tried to make birthdays extra special because that was one thing I remember about my childhood. My mom (and dad I am sure but it was more my mom’s doing!) held great birthday parties for us. We were able to have a “big” party every other year where our whole class was invited. Birthday cakes were theme cakes and the parties were great events with lots of games and fun activities. I think that was the one thing that I wanted to do for my boys over the years and hopefully they have some good memories of parties and cakes and fun times.
So please indulge me today if I get a little misty eyed thinking about him. The pictures are more for me than anyone else but hope some of you can remember our Aaron over the years!
