Making Birthday Gifts Fun

Making Birthday Gifts Fun

It was recently Lee’s 16th birthday and we are whisking him off to Barcelona for a tour of the stadium in a way to give him a 16th birthday to remember, not only that but to also share in his interests too which is football. Seeing as we are not booked to fly out just yet as we are still awaiting on passports to be returned back to us as they expired we thought about making birthday gifts fun this year to help make the birthday excitement last a little longer for him.

This year Lee had to earn his birthday gift, not in a horrible way, but in a fun way, doing what Lee does best, he had to play football.

We have a game which is like chess and football in one ( review to follow ) and Lee has to score a goal to then move onto claim a prize.

The prize then being a letter, once all letters have been collected it will then spell out where we are going – Barcelona!

Once Lee had all the letters he then had to spell out what it is meant to say.

This game mixed with our way of giving Lee his birthday gift was a way of making birthday gifts fun. It was also great family fun along with lots of laughter. We all took turns playing Lee at this football game, Lee thought this was great football fun.

Once Lee had eventually had all the cards and letters needed it took him a while to put them all in the correct order. It was a great thinking game for him too, but a much better way to un-wrap a birthday gift.

This was a fantastic way of making birthday gifts fun, Lee now 16 thought it was a great way to receive his main birthday gift. He really enjoyed playing a football game for prizes and he won the match 12-3 so he was over the moon and it was a great birthday all round for him.

Sweet 16 Today

Lee, our darling beautiful son, you have reached another milestone, you have turned sweet 16 today.

In our eyes you will always be our beautiful baby that we will want to wrap up in bubble wrap and keep safe forever, but yes you are now sweet 16 and however much we are in denial you are needing us less each day.

You are sweet 16 now and we are finding it so hard to believe, it only feels like yesterday that you were running around getting up to all sorts of toddler mischief and believe us there was plenty of that. Yes sadly we blinked and you are now stood before us a very handsome, smart, caring sweet 16-year-old who we love ever so much.

When you was a baby in arms everyone said you will grow so fast and we was to cherish every moment, we never thought for a second it would be quite so quickly.

16 years ago today they placed you in our arms, our hearts skipped a beat where we instantly fell in love with you. Each day you have brought us more and more cheer and happiness. Your smile just melted our hearts and still does today.

Not every day has been easy, we have argued, had disagreements and some days you have driven us crazy but we have always worked things out.

Just remember our darling son that we are always here by your side, you are our pride, our Joy, our everything.  We love you always.
