for Sean's birthday i asked "what would you like to do?"
he said "could we go to the old house and get our tramploine and bring it to the new house?"
i love his simple request.
he didn't ask for anything elaborate or expensive.
just the trampoline.
the neighbor's puppy LOVES the trampoline.
then we got out the sprinkler....so much better!
this picture IS annie in every way.
he wanted to light his own candles....but i only had 6!! (mom fail)
and he still wanted us to sing.
we got him a giant cookie (thanks grandma) and we had homemade ice cream (thanks dad) on top.
twelve year olds are very goofy.
he asked for Lynette's noodles and ham for dinner.
we talked about how we barely made it to the hospital for his birth and how Craig nearly passed out.
he always says "i chose to lay down on the floor in the delivery room...i did not fall down there"
everyone loves to hear their birth story in our family....but especially that one.
the next night Sean had his birthday party with a few friends.
they went to Ice Age 4, ate pizza, they goofed off all around the house and then our neighbors let us swim.
he had another friend come later but the camera was put away by then....sorry jonah.
you missed all the pictures!
they watched more movies and sprawled all over the living room staying up reeeeeally late.
it was a great party for sean.
he was happy.
this year has been SO good for him.
makes a mama's heart happy to see.
happy birthday big guy.
i can't believe you are TWELVE!!
