No More Single Digits!

Our baby turned 10 years old!! Poor matter how old he gets, I will always think of him as my baby. I try so hard not to treat him like he is younger than he is. I want him to have room to grow and mature, but it's hard to step back sometimes. It's not that I even want to have a baby I am trying to keep him a baby. It's just that no matter how old he gets, he is my youngest and will always be our baby.
Carter was excited to turn 10! We skipped school on his birthday and spent the day at home. We let Carter open one of his gifts in the morning before Jeff penguin DS game....and saved the other for later that night. Jeff's parents came over again, and we let Carter have a friend over for pizza and cake. We played Bingo with little prizes and let them sleep on the floor and watch a movie that night. I love giving each one of them their special day. They share so much, but this is one day that belongs only to them!

Happy birthday, Carter. We love you!!!

Looks like Carter had a great day! I saw him hugging the Martian Maker present. You will have to let me know how that is. My boys were wanting it!

What fun!

I had to laugh when I opened your blog. I changed my blog template this morning BEFORE I came here...and then clicked on your blog in my favorites and relized that I'd chosen the same template you have! (It's been awhile since I've been here!)
