On the 25th of this month, my youngest, AJ turned 16
Sixteen is a big thing to me and I think for our generation and even more so the generation before but it doesn't appear to have the same impact for AJ's generation. Or maybe it is just my son's laid back attitude to life in general
He didn't want any fuss or big party, mind you neither did the other two kids
This is the card I made him
I concentrated on texture and a strong graphic element, nothing too girlie or themed
AJ opted for a quiet meal at home ( Chicken New Yorker, followed by Carrot cake) and then met his mates for a couple of hours afterwards
We had worries when we first moved here, that at the age of fifteen and at a critical point in his academic career, AJ might struggle. But he has settled well and has lots of new friends, he is happy and very chilled and loving the new surroundings.
Love and sweet sixteen kisses
