Happy 8th birthday Dear Deniska! I can't believe my little one is 8 years old today! How quickly time passes. I baked him a birthday cake today. He really enjoyed every bite of it as he ate!
This business of birthday celebrating is fairly new to me. I grew up in a family that did not make a big deal of birthdays. We were told Happy Birthday and that was about it. I don't remember ever getting a present on a regular basis. It just wasn't a big deal. My husband, however, comes from a family where birthdays are celebrated. It wasn't until after Deniska came along that we started celebrating birthdays. It's a big deal for our children.
Deniska and I were in Wal-Mart this morning at 7 AM for birthday shopping. This year, he requested to do his own birthday shopping. I thought that was a great idea. So we gave him 2 gift cards, and along with his birthday money from other folks, he had quiet a stash. He shopped very wisely and with his brother in mind. I am very proud of him.
We are going out to eat at Los Amigos tonight after church. It's his favorite restaurant. I know he wants the waiters to sing Happy Birthday to him. He is such a ham!!
