David is only a hop, skip and a jump away from his return!!!

December 28th, 2013

Shelley has created this group birthday card to

send to David for his 23rd birthday!

2013 davids group bday

Last year she also created one that had over 1000 signatures.

She thought David would like it and did he!

Elder Archuleta sent us this!

Shelley has been busy working on the details of

the card to be printed into a birthday book.

The great staff at Staples remembered last years birthday project and let her know they’re ready to help! 

Great customer service :)

So please, if you haven’t already signed the card click HERE to go, no RUN runto sign David’s 23rd birthday card.  There are about 600 birthday wishes as of now and we need at least 600 more to get it above last years count.  It would be awesome to receive a picture of his joy upon receiving it.  The deadline to sign is October 4th.  This will give enough time to get it printed and bound into a beautiful card from all of his fans.

And we might just get another picture showing us that great smile.  :)

no matter how far album pic

And a huge shout out to Shelley and her labor of love! ♥

  5. Dayzee said

    Angelica, wishing you the best birthday possible. Thank heavens the birthday song singing has been taken care of by others, so I don’t feel the need to sing. And it appears the cat has taken care of the cake. So I will just say, “Have a great day!”

    Adding my name for a huge shout out to Shelley and her labor of love. She is one of the best David fans ever! Talks the talk and walks the walk. Thank you Shelley

    Signed David’s card a while ago — hope the total well-wishers climbs above last year’s!
    Angelica — Happy, happy Birthday to you! Wishing you tons of fun today and always!

  10. jans11 said

    Angelica, adding my birthday wishes to you, hoping you have a wonderful day! :) There sure are a lot of great people born in September, aren’t there??? :) hehe A piece of that chocolate cake would taste good right about now! :) :) And those cats sure are the cutest!

    Kudos for Staples offering their help again! My grandson has worked there for about 4 yrs now.

    Just about through reading the book, Proof of Heaven by Dr Eben Alexander. Very intriguing. I love to read or hear of people’s experiences with the unknown. Only people that has made that journey knows about the “unknown”.

  12. My computer decided to let me in ,been trying all afternoon :( ,and yay :))

    ♥♥♥HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGELICA!!♥♥♥ Hope your day was as wonderful as you, sweet lady!

    I could listen to David sing that particular version of Happy Birthday till the cows come home! Just too fabulous for words,gah!
    I signed the card, that was such a nice letter from Staples, thanks for sharing that Dja and love the post, so nice♥.,

    Shelley, thanks for ALL you do for David, and us.

  13. Angelica said

    Thank you all for the happy birthday wishes! I had a very happy one, went to lunch with my husband, then shopping, then to a dinner at church for just the women. Watched the General Relief Society Meeting broadcast world-wide afterwards and heard some great talks. Feeling blessed and thankful for life and all of you.

    Abrra, those are the lamest videos I’ve ever seen. THANKS! lol!

    Hope you don’t take offense but Bebe’s guy in #8 has them all beat. Boy can sang!

    Speaking of him beating out the competition, how bout that trending party last night! That was a blast and MT, him trending in Baton Rouge, (my home town) flat blew me away!!! Who knew he had so many fans there and in New Orleans. We may just get our concert close by yet! Oh yeah. Already there. I declare he is gaining more fans while away than he did while here. Well I guess you don’t appreciate what you have till it’s gone.

  14. bluesky4home said

    13 Angelica!!!! That is WHY I am so very glad that this spot is still here. No… we might now be as ….. (fill in the blank)….. as some sites are. But this site is perfect (and perfectly imperfect as well, ha, ha!) for me. And it would not be here without so much love and devotion from so many.

    That is all.

    “That was a blast and MT, him trending in Baton Rouge, (my home town) flat blew me away!!! Who knew he had so many fans there and in New Orleans. We may just get our concert close by yet! Oh yeah. Already there.”

    I know!! I couldn’t believe it!!

    I love seeing people in our neck of the woods giving him all that love. ♥ I was afraid maybe you, me and Biz might be all the fans he had around here. Nice to know lots of people down south have good taste! :) :) :)

    Wouldn’t you just love to see …..

    DAVID ARCHULETA ~ LIVE IN CONCERT
    NEW ORLEANS ARENA
    ??-??-2014 (any date will do :))

    Woohooooo … David! Don’t forget, the Deep South loves you, too. ♥

  16. betsy said

    I missed your birthday Angelica, but Happy Belated. Glad you enjoyed your day.

    Is it just me or what? I feel like the older I get, I realize just how young David is.
    I am not really aging gracefully lol, I’ll be glad when this year is over. IT’S BEEN A HOT ONE. :)

    I’m up in the north country visiting my daughter and Adam. (others too, but those two are the most important) :)
    We went to an orchard/pumpkin patch/hayride thing. Ate donuts, cider, apples. :) The weather was beautiful.

    Enjoying these fall days and I hope everyone else is too!

  17. Angelica said

    MT, it’s a date. Personally, I’m hoping for Baton Rouge or Biloxi. :)

    Bluesky, you are a big part of what makes this site so purrfect. Imperfect in our purrfection. haah!

    Betsy, sounds like a great memory was downloaded to your databank. Fall is my favorite season. My sister-in-law just came down from Michigan and brought me a big box of Macintosh apples. Gonna bake lots of pies. :)

    OK, whoever has still not signed David’s card, (you know who you are) pleasepleaseplease do it now or by the 4th of October which is this Friday. I know all those people who trended him have not all signed it. If you have more than one email account, please sign using any and all accounts, as many times as possible. I really want the number to top last year. There isn’t much we can do to support or engage at this time but what we can do, we should. And we can do this, I know it. 1200 signatures or bust! Go-getters can vote, can trend like none others and we can certainly achieve this. So shake a leg and get signing!!!

     photo Funny-Cat-Gifs-05.gif

    After all, how many times has he signed for us?

    Late to the party!!!

    Angelica, hope you had an wonderful birthday!!!! Glad the Anahiem birthday video was posted because it isn’t a proper birthday without David singing to you!

    Thank you all you have signed the card!!! I’m with Angelica, please use all your emails to get those birthday wishes in. I know I didn’t have enough space to say all I wanted to say lol

    The trending party was a huge success. Over two hours worldwide and #1 in the US of A!!!!! I loved that it also trended in Chile! Soon David Soon made the top 20 trending topics!!!

    Happy belated Birthday Angelica! You share your special day with my third born! She turned 25 yesterday! She is a very special young lady who works hard and is very giving. Just like you! I wish you a spectacular year filled with loads of love, joy, fun, and laughter! (Oh, can’t forget good food and David concerts aplenty too!)

    Angelica, I love that your friend delivered some good ole Michigan Macintosh apples! My daughter and I made a pie from those very apples just yesterday. OMG SO GOOD.

    We drove home today and the colors are starting. Just a gorgeous cool crisp day for a drive.

    Bluesky, Thank you! David Archuleta is the perfect ambassador for the Utah Jazz, perfect :)

    Betsy, that is beautiful, It would make a beautiful postcard for David.

    Kari is sending out a package to Elder Archuleta in a couple of weeks, get your mailings out!

  26. MT said

    Angelica,
    LOLOL That cat!! And yep, Baton Rouge, or Biloxi, works for me! I’ll bet Sky could do Baton Rouge, too. :)

    Betsy,
    Thanks for sharing that picture. Wow, the colors are beautiful!! Who knows, if David’s first concert is up north in the fall, maybe I’ll get to see it in person. :)

  27. Angelica said

    Heaven to Betsy! Wish we had those color changes down here.

    Just signed the card 4 more times. At first I put in a different email but then I just posted with a different name, pic, font, color and message. Try it. It’s fun changing it up and being ninja for the biggest ninja of them all. ;) Count is up to 762 now!

    My friend Biz just sent me this with the text, “remind you of anyone?” Whoever could she mean?

    I wasn’t sure if I had read it here or if you told me on the phone during one of our top secret admin meetings where we plot all kinds of shenanigans.

    I am still content with my level 7 . I sometimes attempt to get past level 53, but it’s not as fun.

    Abrra :roll:

  31. djafan said

    Off topic…wanted to share this video. The rappers are my pastors at church and the other two are singers in the praise and worship group.

    And this was uploaded on youtube recently from the Westbury MKOCT. Far away but the audio is awesome.

    Angelica, that picture is perfect hahaha.

    I’ve also signed the card a few times :) Will be mass tweeting and facebooking the link to the card.

  32. djafan said

    I hope it’s true!

    “Be on the lookout for a video of Elder Archuleta and maybe some other missionaries in my mission between conference sessions in another weekend. We aren’t sure, but we are guessing that the featured video will be a short segment, maybe 5 minutes or so, included as part of the Church World Report, which will be shown on KSL TV on Saturday immediately following the morning session of conference.”

    Another page off the calendar. Month ends have been sweet since David went to Chile.

    “Be on the lookout for a video of Elder Archuleta” Whoa! That is what I do best. Know what I will be doing this Saturday.

    My son moves from Craig Hospital in Denver to Quality Living Inc. in Omaha today. Anyone familiar with that place?

  35. MT said

    Dja,
    Thanks for posting those videos in #31. I really like the video with the pastors rapping. What an awesome way to reach out to todays youth! And they sing really well. I liked it. :)

    #32. Hope we get to see some of the video and I hope David is interviewed on it! I want to hear his speaking voice with that Spanish accent. ;) I wonder if his voice has gotten any deeper?

  36. MT said

    Dayzee,
    You and your son have been in my thoughts. ♥ Praying for the best, for him and you and your family.

  37. Abrra said

    Dayzee

    Have faith in where Craig is sending your son for his continuing rehab. Consider the fact that they want the best chance for him to progress in his recovery. He is blessed to have spent time in Craig. I see it as such a positive that he is being sent to a place that they consider qualified to help him on his journey.

    Abrra

  38. djafan said

    Hello!

    MT, The pastors are both in there 30′s so this was a huge surprise to us. We’re asking for more because they’re pretty good lol.

    Dayzee, Praying for you (hugs)

    Idolgames! Go and retweet! This directly affects David’s twitter mentions in the social media.

  39. djafan said

    Betsy, I loooooooove your just because ♥

    Love this tweet lol

    So, David Archuleta is on a Mormon mission and is still trending on Twitter. This never happened to me on my mission. #almostfamousnotreally

  40. bebereader said

    400 new Twitter followers and he’s not even here! WTG!

    #32 dja A five-minute video is fine. We’ll take anything at this point….I feel so fan-starved at the moment.

    #35 MT I’m with you. Can’t wait to hear that speaking voice.. Spanish accent.

    #34 dayzee Best wishes to your son when he moves to the new facility! Prayers and {{{hugs}}}.

    One more thing, I saw Michael Buble in concert last Saturday night for my husband’s birthday. The show was good but you don’t get the euphoric feeling you get after one of @davidarchie’s concerts. I enjoyed hearing Buble sing the songs I knew but the ones I didn’t know bored me. Unlike David, who makes you fall in love with every song with his amazing voice and interpretation. Euphoria or not, The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ (where I also saw David on the Demi tour) was packed to the gills and the matinee seats we had were not cheap. I would love to see David headlining a show at the 20,000-seat Prudential Center one day, if that is what he wants.

    So here is a little story. I really like Cesar Milan, and follow him on Twitter AND Instagram. He is MUCHO prolific on both, Instagram the most.
    Last week he was in Mexico, cleaning up after the hurricane and feeding the dogs who were lost.
    This week guess where he is?
    Santiago, Chile.
    Here he is in Santiago in a pet cemetery, praying. I love him for this alone. Seriously, this picture is beautiful. ♥

    So much fun in NA chat last night! We may have watched the show 100+ times but we always find something that we didn’t notice before.Thank you to all who participated! We’ll be taking a week off before starting up again.

    Betsy,
    I had to Google Cesar Milian. Didn’t know he is an animal trainer and that he’s on a TV show called “The Dog Whisperer”. He must be a good guy if he loves animals. Santiago, Chile, huh? I know another Spanish-speaking animal-lover who is in Chile right now, too. *wink*

    I’m not going to let another day go by without commenting on that “hot mess” hair at #28. Just can’t think of any comments that would be appropriate for a lady of my upbringing and age. So I will just give my thanks to Abrra.

  48. MT said

    LOL Dayzee … Love the Hot Mess hair in #28 … and the Eyes in #46. :)

  49. jans11 said

    Having some computer issues so haven’t been on here as much a I want.

    Dayzee, I’ve been thinking of you and your son a lot too and was glad to see that he is still recovering. All my prayers and good wishes go out to you and him for continuing progress. ♥ Even tho I only live about 200 miles from Omaha, and have friends there, I’m not familiar with Quality Living. Sounds promising tho.

    Ditto on #28! :)

    The pastors rapping video is really cute. That is the only kind I like, a lot of the stuff out there is downright vulgar! :(

    All my kids and grandkids have signed David’s card, so I hope that ends up with at least the same as last year and maybe even more.

    I sent a postcard to David from Florida when I was down there. Actually, I wasn’t too far from Apopka where we send our cards to. Will send his holiday cards next month.

    Hoping there might be a smidgeon of David on the Conference break this weekend! :)

    Tomorrow is the last day to sign David’s card before Shelley brings it to Staples. I just sent the link to three of my fan friends who don’t go online much but I thought might want to sign David’s card. I heard back from two of them who were so appreciative because they had no idea there was a card to sign. So that’s two more signatures! If you have any friends who are fans who don’t know about the card and may want to sign, you might want to email the link to them as well.

    Dayzee, I think of your family often and hope you are all in a “good place.”

    Betsy, I loooove Cesar! Have watched him for years, I have videos of the Dog Whisperer and some of his books. He is so respectful toward animals and people. There are alot of things about him that remind me of David. I hope there is some kind of craaazy karma going on and the two shall meet in Santiago! I think they would like each other. :)

    Dayzee, Keeping you and your son in my prayers. I googled the place and found only 5 star reviews.

    I love the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Milan! Years ago I used to watch his show religiously and I didn’t even have a dog. lol. I later adopted a dog from the humane society and used some of the tips I remembered from him. One thing I did that I believe has been so effective is to simply tell my dog to sit and wait a few minutes after I put her food down before I give her the signal to eat. He said just those few minutes of discipline every day alone would establish you as the pack leader. With dogs, SOMEBODY has to be the pack leader and if it isn’t you, THEY will assume the role. Anyway, I showed my Kali that 2 or 3 times and never had to tell her again. She still will not touch her dish unless I or my husband give her the signal. She never does anything wrong, not even kidding, won’t dig in trash or chew or touch anything that doesn’t belong to her. Oh, except that when we first got her when she was a puppy, if we left her alone, she would take mine or my husbands socks to the living room and neatly fold them. haha.

    Emme and Angelica, glad to see the Cesar love! I used to watch his show religiously as well. For years. It was amazing to me that he could turn around a dog
    so quickly. Mainly by just being a calm, strong presence. They need that pack leader mentality, it’s what they thrive on.
    Confession: I’ve always had a crush on him and when he followed me on Twitter (a long time ago) I was in heaven. :) I think he was new to it and followed
    everyone in the beginning.
    You guys should follow him on Instagram. He takes many pictures, daily. :) He has a new Pomeranian puppy and is it’s adorable.
    I so wish he and David could meet and chat a bit. In Spanish, of course. :)
    p.s. Kali is so cute.

    Does anyone know how the B-D wishes turned out? Did she get enough?

    Bluesky, today is the last day to sign the card. I watched the count approach 900 and the last few days has been 150-250. Maybe it rolls over after a certain point. Hopefully, we will get an official count from Shelley soon. :)

    Wishing you the Happiest of Birthdays, Gladys: ¡¡¡Feliz Cumpleaños!!!

    And Abrra…. Hummm. Those cupcakes. On close inspection I might just believe I see little travel bags and party shoes on top of the frosting. I am sure that is just my over imaginative brain… But I can wish for her, no?
