~Double Digits~

Today the Youngest turned ten.
My baby is double digits!

Last Friday we celebrated with a little party for him and some friends.
It may be noticed that we had a 'theme'.

The invitations . . .

The napkins and treat bags . . .

I could not have done it without the help of my wonderful Mom! 
She planned the games, made decorations and directed a good deal of the party.
(I also could not have done it without our wonderful basement to hold it in!)

The birthday boy plays the violin
and so, the chocolate shortbread variety was baked . . .

and tucked into cookie-dough ice cream with whipping cream on top!

He seemed to especially enjoy the part where it goes, "Happy Birthday to ME!"

All in all it was a good party with good kids and fun activities.

Then we did it all again with the extended family the following afternoon!
(can you say 'exhausted' ?)

Then this morning we started the day with birthday breakfast:
chocolate croissants, eggs and apple sausage.

Birthday boys get their juice in the 'fancy' glass.
(He likes to pretend he's having a cocktail . . . hmmm)

And then a little snuggle time . . . and birthday spanking time!

He was even allowed to use Mom's new chair TODAY ONLY!

-I just got it Saturday as a gift from my grandparents. They ordered it but found it uncomfortable so they brought it the three hour's drive down for me! I've never in my life had a recliner, and I'm so excited to have this one- it goes perfectly with my living room and is super comfy (to me!) . . . and to all the other family members; four-legged fur-balls included.

We had a big day doing a little birthday shopping, picture taking and lunch out . . .
He's so fun to hang out with.

I hope he'll look back fondly on turning ten.
I hope he knows how special he is . . . such a unique personality full of amazing talents.
So smart and quick witted; musically gifted, and tender hearted.

I love you Mr. Double-Digits.
And I'm so proud of you.
- Love, Mom
