Fluffy turns 7

P5170040 May 17th marked 7 years since we welcomed our second son into the family. He's called Fluffy because from the very beginning his light, soft hair liked to stand up in the back. If you see in pictures that it is not sticking up, that's because of some serious gel and hairspray. :)

 

I love Fluffy because. . . .

Happy Birthday!! If I would have known it was his birthday, I would have made a treat for your visit.
I enjoyed having your family over. It was so nice getting to know you better. Thank you for letting me in on your life a little bit. I am grateful for our example.

I love that Fluffy boy! He has a great name, doesn't he?
Thanks for putting a smile on my face that won't wear off forever.

Happy birthday! I forget that he and Dallin are both 7 and both LOVE Magic Tree House books. They are fun to read! You're welcome to come by and visit sometime. Are you coming to the reunion?
