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).
