Happy Birthday Timmy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! y youngest turns 12 today - that blows my mind!  He is growing up and maturing so fast lately, I often wonder what happened to the little tiny bubby that arrived at our door all those years ago.
Twelve years ago tomorrow, in fact, I received a phone call early in the morning letting us know that a baby boy would arrive in our home before dinner time.  We were so excited!  Little did we know how he would nestle his way into our hearts, and fill a void we didn't even know existed. After a very long adoption journey, he completed our family and has made us proud every single day since then.

Today we are baking together, he likes a giant chocolate chip cookie in lieu of a cake.  I usually bake a whole batch of cookie dough onto one very large heart shaped pan for him.  So we will make that and Shamrock Floats (recipe here if you are interested) and dad's famous loaded nachos (Timmy's request) for dinner!

I made him this little card, using lots of green in honour of St. Patrick's Day.  He doesn't really play video games, but does play Minecraft on his computer so this super cute image is somewhat fitting.

The stamp is from Your Next Stamp, love boy stamps!

I am playing along with the following  challenges.
