Best Birthday Ever

Happy New Year!  It seems like it's been forever since I've posted anything on my blog.  The Design Teams I belong to have both been on vacation and so have I.  I was in California for Christmas visiting my oldest daughter and her family.  It was great seeing the grand daughters which doesn't happen often.  The oldest is a Sophomore in college now and in two more years the youngest will be off to college also.  They grow up so fast.

I do have a card to share with you tonight for {Pin}spirational Challenge.  Here is the photo that we used for our inspiration this week.

Cute.  Reminds me of Happy Feet!  I loved that movie.  And here is my card.
He looks like he has happy feet too and is having a very Happy Birthday!

It is truly the best part of the holiday spending time with our loved ones.
