Happy Birthday Banner – use photographs from birth until the present to create the most special and unique birthday banner.
Birthdays at our house is a party that lasts at least a week long. That’s how it was when I was growing up so I do the same for my family. Every year I make a Happy Birthday banner to spotlight the birthday child. I hang it on my hutch that is just off the kitchen since that is where we spend most of the time. I love when I catch one of them just starring at the photos saying “I remember when that happened.” or ” remember when I liked such and such.” They get a kick when they realize how much they have changed physically.
The picking process is really easy because of my Project Life Albums. Since all my pictures are in one place I can easily flip through the pages and find the pictures that are meaningful to the birthday child.
Place them in chronological order from birth until the current age.
I have to admit that the tears were flowing when I made this particular banner. Who am I kidding, I cry every time I make one for my kids. But this one really did me in. My baby boy is growing up so fast and I want time to stand still. Or at least slow down just a little bit. Yesterday morning when I went in his quiet room to wake him up for school I crawled into his bed and just watched him sleep. Pretty soon his chubby little fingers are going to be gone. The days that I can give him a piggy back ride are dwindling down because he is a solid little boy. Soon he won’t need my help for the simplest of things. I’m happy that he is growing into such a great kid but I do miss my baby boy.
Seriously could he be any more handsome?
I know I’m old because I am constantly saying how fast this phase of parenthood is flying by!
This was the banner from when my daughter was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
