Today our special little 8 year old turned 9! We didn't end up giving him the 8 year old card - hubby whipped up a pretty cool 9 year old one instead.
Our morning began with everyone gathering on our bed (including Boo), each taking turns to share something they love about the birthday boy - then we prayed for him and then the present opening time began! After school we ate goodies, including a simple but very cool Star Wars cake Syms and I whipped up together.
This little guy was born on Labour weekend, 9 years ago. We had planned our annual Labour weekend youth group camp knowing that he was due to be born well before the camp was on... but he was overdue, and then took another 3 days to come after I was induced! So in the end Symon missed the start of the camp and then took trips back and forth from the camp to visit us in hospital.
I love this guy - he's quirky, clever, a master at any type of video/computer game, funny, flexible and friendly. He's also nearly impossible to photograph (no thanks to his 'thumbs up' Dad)!
Happy Birthday to our special boy!!
