Happy 7th Birthday Marcel!

 
Oh my goodness.  Where does the time go?  Today my sweet little baby turns seven!  We've been on the birthday countdown and he is so excited that today is his day.  He's requested dinner out a local restaurant where he can have fried pickles.  And for his cake request: a C, V, M (that is his code for candles, vanilla cake and M&Ms or as he pronounces M&Ms...mnnn&mnnnns).  He was also pretty specific that he wants five candles, not seven.  "One in each corner of the cake and one in the middle, five is better, because seven wouldn't be even."  He certainly makes us laugh.  People will say to me, "Wow...four boys?!"  But I'll tell you what, I couldn't imagine life without any of them and this little guy has provided us with so many smiles and so much love throughout the years.  From first finding out I was pregnant with him a couple weeks after my dad passed away and him having my dad's name (my dad was Paul Marcel), he like each of his brother's has his own special place in my heart.  Happy birthday Marcel!  I love you more than words can say!

And...here's a CAS birthday card just for him inspired by the current  Embellish challenge...the color palette is perfect for a boy!

I hope your little man had a fantastic birthday! What a perfectly CAS card for him, and I love that he had very specific ideas about what he wanted to make his day special. :)

Fried pickles and a CVM cake? That kid has fabulous taste! :-) I hope Marcel had a wonderful day and got everything he requested (including the correct formation of the candles on the cake LOL!)
Hugs!
