Happy Birthday Archer!

Today Archer is 12! I can't believe it. The time goes so fast - sometimes I just want to slow it down or rewind a bit. I am just so blessed to have such a wonderful son. He is funny, kind, considerate, loving, compassionate, thoughtful, and more...all the qualities one could hope for in a child. I would like to take credit for all his positives, however he is his own person - with just a bit of guidance and love he has turned into a fine young man.

I collected an assortment of pictures from the past 12 years...trying to find some that haven't been previously published! :)

Today we are having a family day. Dinner out - Archer's choice, so probably Red Robin. Tomorrow is a family BBQ with Grandma & Grandpa S., Uncle Alex, Aunt Berta, Aunt Paula, Auntie Lorinda, Uncle Chip, cousins Caleb and Dawson. We will miss DeAnne who is in Germany, however he received birthday greetings from her this morning! On Sunday Grandma Lee & Papa George will be coming up for lunch! Next week we will be having a big airsoft party for some kids and another (non-gun related) get-together for a couple other friends. Lots of festivities to be had!

About a month old in the life-saving bouncy seat!

Look at that face! Darling!

First birthday in the shed @ Grandma & Grandpa's

I don't think this even needs an explanation...Too cute. (this is by far one of my favorite pictures)

7th birthday party. (pic by Grandma Lee...look at the cool smoke effect!)

Another pic from Grandma Lee. I think this must be at the zoo.

This is from last summer. He has grown so much in even this short of a time.

Happy Birthday My Sweet Boy!
