Birthday Fun!

My little guy turned 7 yesterday!  Can you believe it?  Of course you can.  You’re not in denial like me.  :) 

He had his best friend from school over for the afternoon. 

Both boys are shy.  However, I think my guy takes the prize!  For the first hour, trying to get him to show his friend around and play with things together was like trying to stuff a cat in a pet carrier.  His mom and I were cracking up.  We KNOW they were inseparable at school last year.  And they ask to get together ALL the time! 

Too funny!

They were really only just starting to talk and play together three hours later when it was time for him to go!  And, of course, then they begged for more time! 

Later, we had the family birthday party where he got to open his presents.  This poster was a big hit.

And so was a LEGO Star Wars ship which his big brother had preassembled for him.  He was absolutely THRILLED!

For three years, I’ve been referring to him as my “little guy” here in blog land.  But he’s growing so quickly, I may have to come up with a new name! 

Until then, I’ll just have to find ways of making the “little” part work.  :)

Like, posing him strategically.

sunflowers I think even I would look “little” next to these sunflowers!!

Oh kids are so funny aren't they? I think I was a little like that when I was young but now time is precious so I need to get right down to the having fun part. Ha! Ha!
YUMMY CAKE!
And even I would look small next to those sunflowers. WOW!
Have a great day my friend.
