Happy 11th Birthday Rhett

Today my son turns 11 years old. Wow. He is a wonderful young man and I am thoroughly enjoying the privilege of being his mother. I can remember every detail of the moment he was born. ( Never mind I can't remember what I ate for breakfast today.) I remember practically falling off the table...C-section number 3 folks ...when I heard he was a boy. He was a joy from that moment on...for real. And so Rhett, my son, this is for you...

Rhett, at eleven years old you

love movies. All kinds of movies.

love spending time with Dad at work.

love V-8 Splash Juice...Berry Blend.

dislike milk. Very much.

serve every Funeral Mass. And are very devout about it.

eat a Cookies and Cream Poptart almost every morning.

carry your iPod everywhere you go.

are very respectful and friendly to everyone.

love soccer and have scored two goals already this season.

are very good with your Flynn and play hide and seek way too much.

make the best popcorn for us at night.

make my heart happy every moment of the day.

Here are some pictures of you, my little Rhett...

Always happy!
You were so proud of your little Flynn!
You and Grandma on your 6th birthday...

We celebrated you today with family and friends and hamburgers and hot dogs...your choice. We had a chocolate cake with yummy peanut butter icing and lots of presents too. I hope you had a great day, my Rhett. I love you!
