This boy had a birthday on Saturday - his 13th! I can scarcely believe he was born thirteen years ago. Britt didn't want a big party. He's a homebody, and lucky for him, his birthday fell over the weekend, so we were able to stay home. He was thrilled! He did have basketball in the afternoon, but the timing was perfect, the sun was out, and it was a great day from start to finish. Below, the traditional picture of the "present table."
I made my "famous" cookies for both kids. I made the shamrocks for Britt's team for after their games as a birthday treat. The hearts I made for Brailey's JV dance team as an impromtu early Valentine treat. The hearts didn't quite have enough time to dry, but the girls loved them anyway. Bray had dance practice on Saturday at the same time as Britt's games. We were thankful the timing worked out well so we could stay home all morning. I will admit I was a bit disappointed Britt's team didn't sing Happy Birthday to him before they grabbed a treat, but that's the way the cookie crumbles, as they say! (Don't you love all my puns?!)
Below is my buddy Jackson, one of Britt's good friends. This boy warms my heart! And the boy in the glasses below that picture is Tyler, another boy who warms my heart. His family moved here this fall from Utah, and he is super shy. A boy in glasses who is shy is a sure ticket to my heart.
The kids got me this blanket for Christmas. I absolutely LOVE it! And so does everyone else. I rarely get to use my own blanket! Britt is especially fond of it. We had root beer floats after his games on Sunday to wrap up his birthday celebration. He wanted to go to A&W for floats on his birthday, but we don't have one in our area. So we surprised him with homemade root beer floats after his shower. He was cold, so he wrapped up in my special blanket. I couldn't resist sharing this picture. It was a great birthday weekend, and we are already halfway through February. Time sure does fly when you're having fun!
