Happy 8th Birthday Little Man!

Well, I do not know where the time has gone, but our Little Man turned 8 today.  In light of the events in Connecticut last weekend, it was such a joy for me to be able to hold my boy and celebrate another birthday with him.  I was filled with unspeakable gratitude all throughout the day as I watched him play and build.

We went to a lego exhibit, where there was a large area filled with tubs of legos for children to build city structures.  The boys happily built for about 2 hours (and the 15 year old daughter even built something too!).  :-)

Putting the tippy top spire on....

 Ta-da!  The tallest skyscraper there!

On this outing we celebrated the milestone of turning 8 by having Little Man sit in the regular seat of the car instead of in his booster.  WOW.

Back home, it was Little Man's choice for dinner, and he chose waffles.  After that he opened his gifts..... he had been desperately wanting a remote control helicopter, and was so happy when he got it!

Oh joy!

Some hex bugs from his sister, a Jenga game from his WA grandparents, and some cash from his other grandparents.... made for one happy boy.

A lego brick for a cake.

Happy Birthday sweet Little Man!  How we thank God for you!
