We attended a birthday party today! One of my favorite nephews has a birthday tomorrow, and we celebrated it today! My sister and bro-in-law have just instructed him to go ahead and blow out the candles...
When he got to his presents...excitement and appreciation has never been witnessed such as this! He opened the first and cried THANK YOU! and he had no idea what it was! But he was excited. When he got to a gift he really liked, he simply took the tool box of wooden bolts and tools and went off to his room with not one word. We awaited his return...and waited...finally someone went to check...he was playing with the new toy...gotta love that kid! He came back and finished. When he got to our gift of HotWheels emergency vehicles, he cried FIRE ENS! And then finished with a WOO-OOO-OOO-OOOOOOO...pparently a very good rendition of a siren.
His siblings looked on in appreciation, and were cheeseballs for the camera, case in point:
The other one enjoyed the packaging...and he is also very photogenic!
We then went to the 3cities and did some Christmas shopping. At which time the promised Snow showed up...we came home and have had a relaxing evening watching Horton Hears a Who!
