Birthday Card

We celebrated my nephew's first birthday over the weekend. Mother Nature cooperated and we had a great time at his party on the lake. Here is the quick card I put together for him: The front is cut about an inch short to reveal the patterned paper and buttons underneath. I dug out some birthday rub-ons that I had and added sentiments to the front and inside.

When my Godson Holden was baptised, I stumbled around trying to think of what to give him as a gift. Max had the wonderful idea of giving him a tree...so he could watch it grow just as we would watch him grow. Hauling a seven or eight foot tulip tree out the back of a Jeep for 30 minutes was no easy feat, but we made it there...tree in tact. So we felt that it was only appropriate to give his brother Wade a tree too, for his first birthday. A "Wealthy Apple" tree!Check out the size of those apples already!
Hopefully the trees AND boys will grow to be big and strong!
Happy Birthday Wade!
