Happy Birthday, Dale!

My firstborn turned 8 today!!

He seemed more excited about this birthday than any previous ones.

And even with us keeping things pretty simple (hello, have you seen the baby countdown on the left??), he wasn't disappointed.

We started with our traditional candle in breakfast - pancakes - his choice.

We completed a limited school day and spent time getting ready for tonight's hamburger supper, again, his request.

That oldest boy of ours certainly is special.  I don't even have the words tonight to describe his uniqueness.  His depth of personality and character.  It seems so little to say, but I love him very much, and am thankful to be his mom.  

(And I can't believe I've been his mom for 8! 8!?! years!!)

Love you lots, Dale!!

Happy birthday, and many more!

(P.S. Thank you so much to everyone that called, texted, emailed, gave gifts, etc.. each little thing meant so much to Dale (and us) and really made his day special!)

It seems so little to say that you love him? That is the most precious thing you can ever say about anyone. Plus, the love of a mother is multiplied like a zillion times. Those cupcakes look yummy too!
