This layout is all about our second son’s 5th birthday, which just happens to be on St. Patrick’s Day! It is for Connie’s Spot Color Challenge this week. When I was looking for his birthday photographs, I found that I only had six photos of this birthday. I took 150 photos for our granddaughter’s last birthday!! Times have changed, haven’t they?


Journaling: This photograph was made on your 5th birthday . . . on St. Patrick’s Day in 1975. We were living in New Jersey when your daddy was stationed at Fort Monmouth. For your party, I made you a leprechaun hat with five candles. and ice cream which I made to look like leprechauns wearing hats with a green hatband. We had green and yellow balloons which you and Michael helped your daddy blow up. Phillip, Jeffery and two of your little kindergarten friends came over to the house too that day. I think that your favorite gift was a box of jigsaw puzzles and a Curious George book.
