Caleb's 8th Birthday

While Sharla and Justin were here Caleb had his 8th birthday. It is hard to believe that he has been part of our family for that long! He is such a happy kid! He is incredibly smart, stubborn, happy, and good at everything he puts his mind too!

Grandma and Grandpa Coon sent him a BB Gun for his 8th birthday.
He was ecstatic, to say the very least.
(sorry...don't mind the poor quality. I took these with my dinky camera )
He was so grateful for their thoughtfulness.
They always remember his birthday (and all the kids) and it means so much to us!

We got him a DS and some games and he LOVED it.

I am one of those mothers who hate seeing my kids get older. I want to cuddle them forever and never let them grow up. And because of this, we decided that instead of traditional "birthday spankin's" that we grew up with, we are going to wrap our kids up  in a blanket and make them let us hold them like a baby for one minute per age.
Needless to say, Beau and I enjoyed every minute.
I think the kids are gonna hate this idea...but "to bad so sad"! Mom's rule trumps all!

Happy Birthday Caleb! We love you so much!
