Happy Birthday, Michael

Today is my grandson Michael's 12th birthday. It's hard to believe that the shy little boy who moved in with us almost six years ago has turned into a strong and handsome "almost" teenager.

I'm sure our daughter Julie and son-in-law Mike would be proud of the young man their little boy has become.

This summer Walt bought Michael a four-wheeler as an early birthday present because Michael has gotten so tall he has outgrown his little toy one. Michael loves going out to the "farm" with Walt. Michael also loves cutting grass, hunting, and fishing.

Yesterday he got an early birthday present when he found out he made the honor roll in his sixth grade class at All Saints. Way to go!

This morning while eating some of his birthday cookie, he told us he can't wait until next year when he is 13 so he can get a cell phone. Yikes!

Here's an acrostic poem in honor of Michael's birthday.

My grandson Michael

I nspiring
C hicken is what he loves to eat
H eart is what he has a lot of
A wesome
E nergy--he has tons of it
L oving and lovable

Happy birthday, Michael. I hope your day is special--just like you!


  1. Happy Birthday to Michael! I know he must be a wonderful guy to have you as his "mom"! Today is also my son Mark's birthday! Just a few years older than Michael, though! :)

  2. Happy birthday, Michael! Hope you had an extra-special fun day!


  3. Must be a writer thing...this is my daughter's birthday, too. Happy birthday to Michael!! What a handsome boy. I bet Julie and Mike would be proud of all of you.

  4. I'm late in wishing Michael a happy birthday, so I'll say that I hope he celebrated in style. He looks like a cutie-pie!

  5. Happy Birthday to your grandson.

  6. Happy belated birthday to your handsome grandson. Your acrostic poem is a great idea for a special person's birthday!
