Happy Birthday!! STS#11 and STB with Numbers

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!!
I have a special card for a special guy in our family.  Today is our son Sean's birthday! In the birth order he is stuck between two sisters!  I'm not sure who benefited more Sean or the girls, I'm just thrilled that they all get along beautifully and we all live pretty close to one another.  I'm truly blessed!   Now that he is married, he and his wife have two beautiful daughters which I'm sure if you visit here often you've seen them, Riley (age 6) and Tucker (age 3).  Anyway, we are blessed to have a very loving son, who is a terrific husband (so says his wife) and a wonderful daddy!  It seems like yesterday he was playing wiffle ball in the backyard with his buddies!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
