Our boy turned SEVEN years old on Christmas day. I'm not sure I will ever get used to the fact his birthday is Christmas day.
He had cupcakes at my parents house.
Barrett, I know I say this every year but this really has been my favorite age. This year you played AllStars baseball, flag football, and basketball for the first time. We have loved watching you learn new skills and work really hard to improve them. You started PSR at church this fall and you really enjoy going. It is my prayer that you always enjoy going to church and learning about our faith. You are so kind and you seem to really enjoy school. I love watching you learn! You are the best big brother to AveryAnn, I love seeing your relationship grow. I hope you are always her protector and cheerleader. We are looking forward to another year with you and seeing you grow and bloom. I'm so thankful you are ours.
Then we went to the Horton's for dinner and Christmas and we had cake there too.
She is a mess.
I'm so thankful that everyone celebrates our boy on his birthday even amid the chaos. Bless his heart though, he told me he wanted to have a party for his half birthday this year. I think it's just too much with the excitement of Christmas and his birthday all in the same day. Plus he doesn't have anything to look forward to for the rest of the year. We always do something for his half birthday but this year we may try to do a party and then just a little something on Christmas day. It's just so hard to navigate.
