Happy Birthday Aydon!!!

Today Aydon is 10! That is double digits. This is the first birthday that I can honestly say I have been on the verge of tears. Aydon can't be 10, I just had him yesterday. Atleast that is how I feel. I fought through and we had a great day.
Lindsey and I got up early to make Aydon his birthday breakast. We had poached eggs, smokies, grapes, chocolate and crumb doughnuts and OJ. I took Aydon shopping yesterday and that is what he picked out. We all woke up Aydon by singing Happy Birthday to him. During breakfast Danny and I told the kids all the memories we have of the day they were born. We laughed as we told all the funny stories of how I went to the hospital thinking my water had broke but Aydon had just kicked my bladder really hard and made me pee my pants! He thought that was hilarious! Then it was off to school. I brought Aydon lunch and Danny spent recess at school with him and had all the kids around him on the play ground sing Happy Birthday to him. Then my Mom and I brought cup cakes in the his class where we sang again. He is so sweet, even with all of his friends around, Aydon always gives me a kiss and hug goodbye and thanked me for bringing him lunch and cupcakes. Then I went to the store and picked up the gift he has been wanting for a long time. I got the last Wii that target had this week. Now we have been putting off buying this because for one I thought it was rediculously expensive and he already has a PS2. I don't think he needs more than one gaming system. So after alot of negotiating on Aydon's part, we agreed that if he could come up with half, we would match it. He also said he would sell his PS2 on craigslist, DEAL! We had the family over tonight for Pizza (of course) and cake. Aydon opened all his cards and was excited to get money to out towards the wii. After he was done we pretended that was all there was and he went to play with the kids. Danny called him into the kitchen and suprised him. It is so fun to see Aydon get so excited! Needless to say we have been playing wii sports all night. Very fun. Even my Grandma got in on the bowling.

Singing Happy Birthday, AGAIN. Aydon said "It is nice that everyone wants to sing to me Mom but everytime I answer the phone people are singing, everywhere I go people are singing, it has to stop." He is too funny!

Aydon excited when he saw the Wii.

FINALLY! !!! He can sleep well tonight! He gave me the money for the half of the Wii, which was honestly hard for me to do because alot of it was from his birthday but he is understanding concepts of money that is important.
Aydon is such a sweet boy. He is ALWAYS concerned about his siblings almost paranoid about them being safe. On Halloween he took Jake up to every door instead of running ahead with the older kids. He said he wanted to make sure Jake was ok and didn't get scared. The other kids decided to stay with Aydon and walk up with Jake and Lindsey too! Aydon teaches me something new everyday. I love watching him grow and become the wonderful boy that he is but at the same time it makes me sad to think about how quickly time is going by. However, Aydon did promise that he would never move away from home, I just need to get that in writing! We love you so much Aydon and there is no greater blessing in this world than being your Mom and Dad. Happy Birthday!

The Halloween with no Pictures!

I am so bummed I forgot my camera last night. I don't have any pictures of my kiddos lookin so cute. Aydon was GI Joe. He was in all camo and we pianted his face camo. Very cool. Lauren was a 50's girl in her cute poodle skirt all dolled up. Lindsey FINALLY picked her costume after going through 3 of them. She first was Barbie and the 3 musketeers, then she was a ballerina and then she decided to be a little bunny rabbit. She was so cute with her fluffy white tail and cute pink nose. Jakers was BATMAN he was adorable. We painted a bat around his eyes under his mask. We headed to my sisters as we do each year and it always is a blast. Really fun neighborhood. Warm and yummy soup and salad and lots of other goodies. Great food, great company. Wish I had my camera.
