Birthday Blessings!!

As Nevin maps out all the upcoming movies and their release dates on his calendar, he is starting to take more notice of other important dates....... like birthdays. It has been fun, because it means you get to have happy birthday sung to you many times before the actual day! And gives him lots of time to plan. Nevin planned a date to celebrate my birthday last week.

He took me to see KungFu Panda 2.

Then he took me to Chuck E. Cheese's.

And he ordered me his favorite sausage pizza.

And he bought me some tokens and helped me use them.

We had a great time!! I felt very special.

Since Nevin monopolized my time........ my other lovies had a hard time finding me. Hannah left me some beautiful flowers and Nolan had to come for a late night birthday hug and a wonderful candle.

Birthday gifts!! each one of them...... each child gifted to me by God...... each one fitting perfectly into their place in my life. Hannah bringing beauty and compassion that only a daughter can, Nolan bringing a calm strength that needs no words and Nevin bringing love beyond measure. I am truly blessed!

How thoughtful of Nevin! You are very blessed, Laurie!

I love the photo of the three "kids". The mischievous grin, Nevin flanked in love, the big smile...some things never change! :D Love it!

We need to get back to Mr. B's photoblog and visit Nevin's, also.

This is my first time on your blog. I've come over from Garden of Eagan. I have been looking for other blogs from parents of adult children with Down Syndrome; but... how do I follow you??

I've love to come back and read more about your handsome guy!
