Happy 9th Birthday, Tyler!

Yesterday was our youngest's 9th birthday.  I'm sure I say this with every child's birthday post, but it really doesn't seem possible.  The years really do fly by....even in our children's eyes.  That must mean it really is, because I don't remember thinking that when I was a child.  Do you?

Tyler wanted pancakes and bacon for breakfast.  He's daddy actually cooked breakfast yesterday.  (How nice!)  Tyler wasn't quite awake in this photo!
Tyler likes to talk like Mickey Mouse quite often.  He's his favorite Disney character.  When my daughter and I went to Disney World in early September, we bought him this Mickey hoodie.  I saved it for Tyler's birthday.  
He wasn't quite sure what kind of birthday theme he wanted, but Sunday night he finally decided on just a Christmas theme.  I was so excited!  He had a reindeer party at two or three, but I never pushed any other Christmas-type of party.  This was super-easy to put together quickly!  I knew I had some Christmas shaped cake pans stored in the garage, but was surprised to see this snowman shaped pan. It turned out great!  He was excited!

These three pumpkins were saved from the family pumpkin bash to be painted and made into a topiary-type of snowman.  I had them painted already, so decided to make three snowman heads for the table centerpiece at his party.  I may just keep them in three.
Blow out the candles!  My husband picked up these colored flame candles.  Kind of cool!

Tyler,

We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.  Sometimes you realize how that if certain circumstances hadn't not happened in our lives, you wouldn't be here. (Read here for the Caleb story.)  God wanted you in our family and we are so very grateful that He did.  

We look forward to watching you grow up physically, mentally, and spiritually during this next year and for the rest of your life.  Thank you for spirit and personality, that brightens up the lives of others.

We love you,
Mom & Dad
