Happy Birthday Jonathon {one day early}


Tomorrow we're celebrating Jonathon's 14th birthday.  He's growing up before my eyes and becoming more and more outgoing as each day passes.  Over the last year he has grown a ton....and is about a 1/2 inch shorter than Ryan.  Jonathon has my dad's build (tall and lanky) and will soon pass up his older brother.  I'm not sure if he'll break the six foot mark like my dad and brothers, but he'll certainly be a tall Mangan!  I love to watch him grown into a wonderful young man.  He's trying new activities (thinking about track for the spring too) and making lots of new friends. I'm proud of the young man he is becoming.  His smile and laugh are certainly contagious!  Happy birthday my beautiful brown eyed boy.



His card is inspired by the repeating images on the current The Cutting Edge challenge.  Instead of repeating hearts I used stars for the birthday boy.

  19. I can feel the love you have for this wonderful son of yours, Lynn. Love his smile and warm eyes :) My son has grown 6 inches this year! Passed me in March and is almost 5'11" at 14 and built very similar to Jonathon - tall and lanky. He wants to surpass my brother at 6'2" and if he keeps going at this rate he will do so in no time! A bottomless pit to fill up indeed LOL! Enjoy celebrating his wonderful day :)
