Someone had a birthday...

 Ian turned 9 on Friday. Oh my, you would have thought it was Christmas. He was up about every 45 minutes the morning of the big day to see if it was time to get up yet. Finally I said to him,"Don't ask me again until it is 6:00!"  Birthday presents you know.

He got a welding helmet from one set of grandparents and he wore it during his friend party to protect himself from evil forces. From the other set of grandparents he got a wallet with some money. Saturday morning by 9:15 the money was spent on an action figure.

The friend party was a SUCCESS! We had an old school party - you may remember the kind... Ian got to invite a few friends over (5) for pizza and movies in the rec room. They ate pizza, then went outside with the assorted nerf arsenal and had a grand time. They came in way after dark and "watched" a movie. Two friends were able to spend the night, so there were giggles until around 11:15.  Way past my bedtime.

Isn't this the cutest darn thing? I love it - makes me almost want another baby to put it on. Then again I can donate it and someone else can put it on their baby. Seriously it is precious cute - Kal even said so and knitting does not jazz him one bit!

Glad he had a happy b-day, also glad that it only happens once a year so that you can get some sleep the other 363 days a year (took Christmas out also:).

Love the hat! super cute! Almost makes me wish I had a baby............. HAHAHAHAH just kidding, but it is cute.
