I can't believe my little guy is 7 years old.
His birthday was this past Saturday. We had family in town visiting, we went snow tubing with friends, and ate some yummy cupcakes (with quickly formed fondant snow tubes on them ~ my color gels were lacking and I only had black and girly colors on hand so we went with all black tubes). We went out for dinner at Applebee's (not his first choice, but on a Saturday night at 7pm without reservations, the choices are limited when you have 7 hungry people), and I am still kicking myself for not having my camera ready when the staff came out clapping and singing birthday wishes to him. Oh, the look of crazy embarrassment on his face was PRICELESS!
We had a blast, and to top it off, Sunday night the Steelers won ~ a perfect end to a perfect weekend!
However, like I said before, I am a little sentimental today.
Time goes way to fast. I need to remember to make sure I take the time to stop, enjoy and savor the big moments, but especially the little moments of life. It is so easy to get wrapped up and busy with everyday life that I don't let myself sit and savor the smiles and the giggles and the daily celebrations ~ you know, a good grade on a test or a basket during a basketball game. I rush too much when we make cookies together, or read a book ~ I want to get them done because I have this and this and this to do, or it's time for bed, we'll read more tomorrow. I need to stop rushing so much and start reveling in the beauty of the everyday.
Cheers to you Action!
My little man who:
has a contagious smile
is a little freaked out at the sight of blood
is nervous to lose his first tooth
adores his sisters (even if he does fight with them)
is becoming quite the little student at school
savors reading books with Dad and Mom before bed
is kind of addicted to his new DSi
and who always has a twinkle in his eye
I love you!
