Happy Birthday, Music Man!

Mr. self-taught guitar player and football running back is fifteen today!  Hard to believe Andrew, my oldest grandson,  is a young man.  Just yesterday, we were jumping on my bed together and doing mid-air tricks.  Andrew can still do that but this old lady can barely get on the bed much less jump any more.

Before his birthday, Andrew fractured two fingers so I have heard no picking nor watched a ball game.  Here's wishing him a speedy recovery so he can do the things he loves and a very, very Happy Birthday. 

Tonight, his gift is dining in the place of his choice and a trip to the music store and Wal Mart.  My card will be smoking!!!

UPDATE:  The night was a success.  Andrew chose new guitar strings, some music, a video game, an Arkansas Razorback pillow, and we ate Chinese.

Thank you all for your kind wishes for a Happy Birthday and speedy healing.

Happy birthday to Andrew!

I love that you are taking him to dinner and then shopping for his birthday afterward. That was my mom's tradition with each of my kids. On their birthday, she would take them to their favorite place for dinner and then let them buy whatever they wanted (in her given price range) at Toys R Us afterward.

They loved it!
