Ahoy Me Mateys, Another Birthday Be A-Comin'...

Well, another birthday is almost here. My little Jordan is turning eight years old on Monday! We went on and had his birthday party today at the park and it was just beautiful. It was not really a "party" per se, just really a nice get-together with two of Jordan's friends and their siblings, and his cousin. His grandma came and she brought his cousin, which was really nice! He was so excited he could hardly sleep. I'm talking about in the wee hours of the morning when it is still dark outside he was tossing and turning and could not sleep. His stomach was turning flip-flops just in anticipation of everyone singing the birthday song to him! It was such a fun time and a really perfect day! Thank you Lord for the beautiful weather today!

As the kids are getting older we have decided to stop having the "parties". We have always had the whole family there and lots of friends, but we feel like they're getting big enough now just to do something fun with their close friends (instead of mom and dad's friends) and that be enough. This is the first year we have done our parties like this and it's gone really well. Having the big parties are also not very reasonable for us anymore because of the considerable cost of having them! Anyway, it was a fun time, and he still has his real birthday on Monday to look forward to, the day he turns EIGHT, the day he becomes... well, he just becomes a year older! LOL!

I love my son and I"m so thankful for him and that we have been blessed with him. Hope ya'll enjoy these pics!

Birthday Boy Jordan!
