My husband turned 30 this past weekend. Wow, we’re really growing up! Now, he doesn’t like making big deals about his birthday, but 30 is a big one, so I wanted to do something special. I found this idea on the Lovely Green Lifestyle blog via Pinterest, and thought it would be perfect!
I got 30 helium balloons of all different colors (my son kept picking black ones and I told him Daddy’s not that old yet.) Then I attached a picture of him from each year of his life and numbered them. For Christmas last year, my mother-in-law gave my husband a case full of pictures, and had scanned each one so we could have a digital copy. I couldn’t have done this without her. It was so fun going through all of his old pictures. To see him go from this cute little boy…
Then I wrote notes on the back of each picture, saying something I love about him, or our children love about him. I even got his family members input and they had wonderful things to add. He spent a long time reading each one.
This would also be great to do for Father’s Day. As a side note, I matted each picture on card stock which made it too heavy to float. On the blog I was copying, the pictures hovered above the ground, so she must have used normal copy paper.
