A few months ago, we celebrated Barrett's 9th birthday and I did something extra special for him and it only cost a few bucks! I went to our local Dollar Store and picked up nine star-shaped mylar balloons and then I took scrapbook paper and wrote nine things that we love about him on each one. I used a paper punch and then put the ribbon through the hole and tied it. I put them around his room and let him come home from school to this wonderful surprise.
Barrett loved all the things we love about him.
Gwen says she can't wait for her birthday for her "birthday balloon love notes".
For less than $10, this birthday surprise was Barrett's favorite part of his birthday. So sweet.
