Happy 8th Birthday Grayson!!!!
Well, his birthday was actually this past Saturday, March 5th so this birthday wish is a little bit belated. But I don't think he'll mind! I just cannot believe that my youngest baby is 8 whopping years old already. And in just two short years he will be in the double digits!!
To top it off, every birthday he has is a friendly reminder that I too am getting older because, you see, we share a birthday. Grayson was my 30th birthday present. So if I ever get too old or senile to remember how old I am, which happens already unfortunately, I can just add 30 years to however old he is at the time. Very convenient!
We had a fun weekend together with the family celebrating our special day. I actually really love sharing a birthday with one of my babies. It makes it all the more fun and the celebrations get to go on for days! :) This year, he got to do whatever he wanted all day Friday, and I got to celebrate Saturday night. He chose a movie out-- we saw Rango-- and pizza at CiCi's, which is where the picture above was taken. Him in all his pizza glory. On Saturday morning when he woke up, he got to go on a treasure hunt complete with clues and hidden money. Fun!
Saturday I started my morning with a lovely cup of coffee and then drove to Zumba class-- so much fun!! But no, not too much rest for me that day. Went grocery shopping, which I actually like, and ran two boys to soccer practices in the rain. But later that evening Tim and I got to go out alone and share a lovely dinner together which was wonderful.
So this weekend was a fun time of celebration, thanking God for the life He has given me and the children He has entrusted to me. Happy Birthday G-Man!! We love you so very much and think you are one of the most special, fun and cutest people on this planet!!!!
