He's Going to be TEN

We can't believe Tate is going to be "10" this month.  Wow!  Time flies, when you are raising kids.  Usually we just invite Grandmas and Grandpas to have cake with us for the boys' birthday, but since Tate is going into double digits I told him he could invite a couple of friends over to play and have pizza and cupcakes.  Yummy!  More cake for me...hee hee!  I love cake!

Since I never make birthday party invitations, I am taking this opportunity to make one for him.  I love how easy it was to change the birthday invite template from My Digital Studio.  This invite had an owl on the front and a tree on the inside page.  I was able to play with it and make it perfect for Tate's invite.  He loves to skateboard and he has been snowboarding this year.  It turned out perfect!  He might only be giving out a couple, but his mom got to play with her toys anyway.


I deleted the address and phone number for security reasons.

My sister sent me these phrases.  
It is nice to know how many times I am quoting the bible.  
I need to go back to my bible study next school year.

Wonderful invitation, Kim. It reflects the personality of Tate and I'm so glad that Mom had the opportunity to play. *Ü* If Tate is turning 10, that must mean Amy will be too, in a few short months. Yikes! lol

Thanks for sharing the Bible verses. I didn't realize how many expressions we say come directly from the Bible. That list is enlightening.

Have a great day. Hope you stay warm (and you get the warm up in your neck of the woods that we are expecting after today).

A fantastic invitation Kim. You're a saint...4 hours with several 10 year old boys? OY!

Kim! I love the invites! That Digital Studio is sounding better and better to me. I am sure Tate is going to have a wonderful birthday.

The Bible verses you shared are awesome. I'm going to copy them and share them.
