Happy Birthday in Heaven

It's hard to imagine my little guy would've been 17 today.  ...Harder still knowing he's not here to celebrate the special day with us.

Seems like only yesterday we were bringing that tiny bundle of joy home for the first time.  He was wrapped in a yellow afghan (even in July) because his Mamaw June had made it for him.  In the blink of an eye, we were celebrating his 1st birthday.  Austin continued to fill our life with happiness and love...all the way through to his last birthday with us, #14
(You can read about each birthday at his blog from any of these links)

Today, he would be a nearly grown young man.  Looking down on us, because he's surely be over 6 ft by now, I can imagine how handsome he would be.  Today would be filled with his favorites, as we'd celebrate a simple night together, just the four of us.  I'd make his favorite meal, which would include grilling kabobs and hot potato salad, complete with strawberry cheesecake Blizzard cake from DQ.  Tomorrow would be a large gathering with family and friends in our backyard, where Austin chose to have so many of his birthday parties.  ....if only.

This link will take you to a Birthday Slideshow through the years with our special boy.

Happy 17th Birthday in Heaven, Austin. We love and miss you...
