How Can My Baby Be 11? A Photojournal of Smiles Throughout His Birthdays

Hi friends and welcome!
Thanks for stopping in for my son's birthday post!
I wish you could all come over later for cake too!!
Eleven years ago today, my sweetheart was born...
well, not quite at this hour....
not til 10:20 PM.....!
For his birthday, I thought I'd share 
a photojournal of his 11  birthday shots
one descriptive word per year.~












Yup, that's his 11th birthday  Dalek cake!

We have some more celebrating to do tonight with our cutie,
but I wanted to come by and share these memories.
These photos (and other decorative items) adorn his birthday tree, too!
Shown here......~

If you missed his series on "Shaping Rocket Balloons,"
as a guest post-er here on my blog, 
which was tons of fun for him to do
'and actually, wildly popular here on the blog...
here is part one of his video how-to series:

  4. How adorable your son's birthday pics are! I think #8 is my favorite. When my daughter turned 18, I posted all 18 birthday pics on her facebook. Her friends got a kick out of it. Not too sure she did :)... I also wanted to let you know I bought a ring for my daughter a few days ago through your amazon link. Thanks so much for using mine! I will definitely be buying more in the future and will use your link again my friend!

      Thanks for hosting!

  6. Chris, I thought of you on the day you were celebrating your son's special day as we were celebrating ours over here. We had to put off part of his birthday celebration, which we are doing tonight. The partying never ends this time of year, it seems. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. It's all good though, right? Your son is adorable and seems like such a honey. Blessed you are! And he in turn to have such a wonderfully devoted mom!

    1. Aw, thanks Rox! Too bad there are just so many miles between us; we could bring the celebrations together! How great that would be.

      Happy bday again to your little guy and thanks friend, for stopping in!
