Dear Oliver Christian,
You are twelve today.  Sometimes when I think about you I spontaneously cry. 
 You do that to me.  I cry because you are so special.  
You are bright, and kind, and good.
I am proud to be your mother.
I know you have a bright future ahead of you and I can't wait to watch you get there.
Today we are going to have a fun day celebrating by going to a movie (Star Wars),
 and eating at your favorite restaurant (Pei Wei).  
And I know, I know you don't want cake!  How about ice cream?
What about donuts?  I bet you'd be happy if I stuck a candle on
on a gummy worm.  You love gummy stuff (just like your cousin Maloy).  
Can't wait for you to be in Mutual with your sisters and I!
(I can't believe you are getting so big!!!!).

I love you son.  I love you SO much!
