HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTIN!
My little Justin is 8 today. I can hardly believe it. It seems like just yesterday he was a sweet 2-year-old little baby boy. Justin has grown into a wonderful little boy. He is so sweet and loving. Justin loves to give hugs and still likes to cuddle with his mama. He is so smart and is so very funny. Justin is very strong willed and will not back down when he thinks he is right. We love Justin so much. The memories of Justin's first 6 years with us are priceless. I can not wait to see what the future holds for him. I know he will do something wonderful.
To celebrate Justin's special day we had a family dinner at home. He really wanted to go to BD's Mongolian BBQ, but we got ALOT of snow today and the roads were terrible. Justin settled for McDonald's, since it was a close second anyway! He also got to choose his cake, so we had a chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Yummy! He opened his gifts from us and he loved them all. Jus got a remote controlled skunk, a new scooter and helmet, a metal detector and a small steel safe with an alarm (to keep his siblings out). All of his gifts were a huge hit, but he really loved the metal detector. He can not wait for a nice day so he can go out with his pal Seth and look for treasure.
We always end up celebrating the kids birthdays for several days. We celebrate once with family and once with friends. Justin's "fake birthday" (that is what he calls it) will be held on February 7th at the World of Bounce. He will be having a joint party with Katie that day. We will have the place to ourselves for about 3 hours, so each of the kids can invite 12 friends. They are both really looking forward to their party.
I will end with a cute story:
When Chad woke Justin up today he told him Happy Birthday. They then had the following conversation:
Chad: "Well Buddy, now that you are 8, it is time to get a job!"
Justin: "What do you mean?"
Chad: "You know work. You have to get a REAL job."
Justin: "Ohhh! Like at BURGER KING?"
He is so crazy.
