Lucky Number Seven

Well we all woke up this morning fairly early. You see it was Blake's birthday. He is our early riser, he will wake up early in the morning ready to go. I have even gotten up for work at four in the morning just to find Blake watching tv or playing his video games. I eventually had to buy him an alarm clock, not to wake him up but to keep him in bed. I set his alarm for seven and he knows that he is not to leave his bed until then. Well since today is a special day I let him get up at Seven, ha you thought that I would cave but I didn't.
Kristen and I were ready this morning. At the stroke of seven we heard the pattering of feet as our two oldest came running to our room ready for the start of a party. We all went down stairs and into the family room. Blake's eyes scanned the room for his presents. He looked back at me in shock that there was not a present to be found. I quickly explained to him that presents stop at seven. A look of horror flashed across his face as he quickly looked to mom for aid. She quickly explained that there were still chores to be done even though it was his birthday. His room tidied and bed now made he came back down stairs to find his presents.

Seven wow he is getting old

Taylor can't believe that the presents are not for him

Focused on toys

Time to play (after school)

So Blake got to unwrap some presents and play for awhile before school. Then we sent him off with a backpack full of cookies to share with his class. We asked him what he wants for his B-day dinner, and he said Mac-n-cheese with hot dogs in it (yum).
