It’s a bit late (today was a nonstop day), but I HAD to post an entry recognizing Braeden’s Birthday! It was a wonderful day and Braeden enjoyed himself so much. This year more than any other, Braeden has been so excited for his Birthday and it was so great to see him so happy. I brought cupcakes to his school, we sang Happy Birthday while he stood at the front of the class and I ate lunch with him in the cafeteria. I had to work for a few hours and after work Mike’s parents, Aunt, Harley, Mikey and I (Mike is out of town until about 11pm) took him to Olive Garden (his choice) for dinner and went back to Mike’s parents for a little Birthday celebration. We decided to fore-go a party this year since he wanted an Ipod and a few other little things (fortunately with two sets of parents, gifts like these are a little more doable). We told him if he wanted such an expensive gift then we would not be able to have a party too (we are trying hard to teach him the value of a dollar) and he made his choice. Suited me fine- as much fun as children’s Birthday parties are, they are also quite stressful. Anyway, enough of my blabbing, here are some great pictures. Let’s start with a few from the past 7 years-
And some from today- My BABY is 7!

Braeden chose a skateboard/Tony Hawk theme. Mikey LOVES the little skateboards….. AND Braeden’s balloons.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make Braeden’s day such a special one. We love you all.
