Noah turned 8 today!
He was born on 8/8, and he's 8.
I'm thinking this will be a great year for him!
He woke up and I made him his favorite cinnamon rolls!
I did this thing for Ben and hid his presents, so Noah wanted that too.
So, while he was at school. I spent time writing little cards with clues on them.
The first clue requires he acts like a ninja to get in his room and find the next clue.
I wrote little rhyming cards.
He was super excited.
Then, he had to run all around and find his presents.
Luckily David got home a little early because Noah couldn't wait to open presents.
He got to his cards first. Thank you to everyone who sent him a card. He loved them!
He only asked for 2 things for his birthday. They were both video games.
I felt bad that he didn't have much to open, so I got him a box of his favorite candies too... candy corn, bubble gum, Andes mints, Hot Tamales, Milk Duds, Rolos. Lots of sugar!
Then, we went to the pool. Emily's friend Alissa has 2 little sisters. Noah is smack dab age wise in the middle of them. We joke all the time that he will marry one of them. We just don't know which one yet. We got to the pool and he thought they'd be there and they weren't. He was so sad.
Then, they showed up and he had the biggest smile on his face.
Here's David throwing Noah and he's squirting Clara with a water gun.
Here's him and Clara both flying in the air after the Dad's threw them.
And this little cutie is Savannah. How will he ever choose who to marry? HA!
We had a yummy steak dinner, his favorite. Noah is not a cake person, so he asked for pumpkin cookies. I made him those last night as they taste better the next day and I think he's ate at least a dozen today.
We usually do lovin' at night where we all pile in our bed and watch TV. But, we have a new thing where we put down a blanket and we all just watch the stars, looking for shooting stars and talk. So, Noah requested we do that for his birthday.
It was a perfect ending to the day.
He's so full of spunk and love. He tells me all the time how much he loves me.
He loves cats, ice cream sandwiches and magic.
We love him so much.
