A Week Full Of Birthdays

For the last two days, I've been working on birthday cards for three of my grandsons.  Their birthdays follow one right after the other.  A tradition I started a few years ago, was to take the birthday boy or girl out to dinner at a real, sit down restaurant of their choice.  Since I don't eat fast food, I don't allow that as an option.  :-)  After dinner, we go shopping.  I let them pick out their own gift.  That's right!  There is method to that madness.  By doing so, I know it is something that they want and will like.  For those grandchildren who live in other states, I just send them a check and they get to spend it on something they want.  So far, it has worked out well.

So, for today's post, I'm sharing Devin's card.  His birthday is today and he is now eleven.  If all goes well, he will spend Friday night with me and I'll take him out to dinner and a movie.  On Saturday, we'll go gift shopping before I take him home.  I'm really looking forward to it!

Devin is my on his way to computer guru and a game player.  Put him in front of a video game and he will play it for hours.  It will be interesting to see what he selects for his gift.

Until we meet again...
