Happy Birthday Vince!!!

Pin It Now!

Happy 22nd Birthday to my son Vince! I couldn't be any prouder of my handsome and SUPER smart son! He just finished up his last college finals and will graduate later this year with a double major in Political Science and Economics and a minor in Statistics. I really would love to brag about all the honors he's graduating with but he gets really embarrassed when I brag about him so trust me when I say he's made me a very proud mom! He's taking a short break and then on to Graduate School to get a Ph.D. and plans to be a College Professor!


I can't believe he's 22, where has the time gone?

Your children are both beautiful young adults. It's wonderful having your children in your life. Congratulations and happy birthday to Vince.

As Usual, Cindy, everything you create is beautiful..that carries over to children, as well. I agree with the lady earlier, he is a HUNK!! With brains,to boot! Some day some lucky girl will be blessed to be his wife! My daughter's birthday was in December, too. Lauren is a darling, beautiful girl , also. Have a good weekend!

I have a son named Vince also, so I had to come by and say Happy Birthday and Congratulations to your Vince!

My son just became a father a week ago! He is also a very smart (has his Masters and is planning on getting his PhD in Education Policy and Research) and he's also a handsome guy -- it must be the name Vincent brings all good things :-)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
