Happy Labor Day

This really isn't a post about Labor Day.

Today is Gabriel's birthday and it just happens to fall on Labor Day this year. Which is doubly good because he doesn't have school. So this year his b-day is a national holiday! lol

He is now in "double digits," 10. He is so excited. It's just the 3 of us today, everyone else is out of town. So we will celebrate with them next weekend.

I made almost all of the packaging that his gifts are wrapped in. This one we gave him yesterday, he loves early presents. Anyway out of all the things I have made, this is his favorite.

His words, "I'm going to keep this one." High praise coming from him. haha

Take a look:

                                                                Happy Birthday, Gabe!

Have a great day!
Hugs and God bless.
