Guess Who's 10?
Josiah has gone from single digits to double digits! His birthday was Sunday, and we enjoyed celebrating it together as a family. As is our tradition, the birthday boy got to pick his meal. We had grilled cheeseburgers, chips, root beer, and a salad. For dessert he opted to have fudge brownies sundaes instead of the traditional birthday cakes. It was all very good! My chief griller did an excellent job with the burgers.
The kids had fun decorating. I didn't get any good shots of the streamers. They were EVERYWHERE! Every doorway, the ceiling fans, the walls, the chandelier over the table. I did get a nice shot of our Happy Birthday banner. We made it a couple years ago and use it for every birthday.
Another thing you can't really see very well is that the girls set the table "fancy" for the birthday meal.
Isaac enjoy all the food too! Here is an upside down shot of him from behind his high chair. What a little ham!
Josiah received a couple of Ecards in the mail and the kids watched those very short animations like it was a Disney movie.
We then set up in the living room for opening presents. Josiah was literally surrounded by them!
Our kids like to give what they have. I think this is very cute! It teaches generosity, and it saves us money. For example, I think this goofy glasses were actually Elizabeth's at one point.
Josiah opened this gift....
Guess what we are having for breakfast?
Did you say "oatmeal"????
Apparently we are having....
Dale and I got him a few more books to the "39 Clues" series the kids started reading recently.
And much against my better judgement, this light saber. Yes it has flashing lights. And yes it makes noise.
For Elizabeth's gift, she made up a little treasure hunt with clues. I never really saw what happened with that because it was getting VERY late in the afternoon and the littles needed, needed, needed to get naps before the evening service at church. Anyway, it was a nice birthday, filled with yummy food, family, fun and some silliness.
Have a blessed day everyone!
