The morning started off with Luke coming out of his room while I was making pancakes. He ever so sweetly said, "Hey Mom, I got out of my bed quietly and didn't even wake up Noah." That brief moment where he didn't remember it was his birthday, but was so proud of himself for doing the right thing reminded me that he really is growing up.
Not long after that breakfast began. We sang, we ate and we opened presents. Luke was all smiles. Birthday pancakes with whipped cream and sprinkles sure made this boy feel special.
Noah chose a great gift for Luke. City Legos were a big hit, and the biggest brother in the family did a great job keeping it a surprise.
Not long after dinner all of the family showed up to help us continue the celebration.
And, of course, we had to keep with tradition and get this guy with our birthday kiss sandwich.
He didn't mind.
Star Wars and Ninja Turtles have now invaded our home almost entirely.
The birthday boy had requested 'sprinkle' cake with chocolate frosting, that's what the birthday boy and all of us got. I LOVED hearing him sing the birthday song to himself right along with the rest of us.
