my baby boy's birthday hip hop!


wut up, hip hoppers?!  it's a happy birthday to my middle child and only son, RYAN ERICKSON!!  he is turning 14 today!!!  I am freaking out a bit.  it does not seem possible that he is now 14.  as a tribute to my guy, I am sharing all sorts of old ryan Erickson layouts.  see here:























ryan always cracked us up when he was little with the things he said.  i feel very fortunate and thankful that I recorded a ton of it through scrapbooking.  we sat around the table last night reading the journaling from old layouts.  good stuff.


you know who else has a birthday today?!  unity...
