Happy 12th Birthday Rhett

My Rhett is twelve. My baby boy is twelve. And what a wonderful young man he is. I am blessed every single day to be his mother. Rhett, I love you and want you to remember what you are like at this fun age. Sooooo, Rhett...this is for you!

Rhett, at twelve years old you

love The Walking Dead.

really love The Walking Dead.

still love movies. A lot.

drink V-8 Splash. Berry Blend only.

still dislike milk. Unless it is in vanilla ice cream.

love the green blanket we have on the couch.

love to play on your iPad with your headphones on.

love working at the theatre. A lot.

make your sisters and I laugh every single day.

are very sensitive and concerned about others.

love to have sleep overs at Grandmas.

love Baja Blasts from Taco Bell.

still serve funeral masses and are very devout about it.

remind me of your grandfather. And I am thankful for that.

make your father and I proud every single day. : )

I remember this day...we were getting ready for Mass. : )

One of my very favorite pictures. Ever. Grandpa was so proud  and excited to take you to The Fishing Derby. You were four years old, and he talked about that day with such happiness. You made Grandpa very happy that day, my Rhett.

You are an awesome brother...

a fearless hunter...

and a great son. : )

Here are some pictures from your special day...

You chose a Spiderman theme...

but went with the most amazing Walking Dead cake ever.

We took some fun birthday pictures...

  3. Happy Birthday to Rhett. I loved reading that list about him. My favorite one was how he is very sensitive and concerned about others.
