Happy Birthday Charlie!

Yesterday was Charlie's 8th birthday. He is growing up so fast! In our family 8 years old means he gets baptized and he get to join cub scouts. He was very excited to hit this landmark. We had a party for him at Papa's Pizza. Grandma and Grandpa Leon got him his scout uniform. He even asked them for it and went on Monday to pick it out with Grandma. She sewed all the patches on for him.
David and I got him the a game for his XBox that he'd been asking for. He's told us about this game every day for the last three months. David was messin' with him yesterday and told him that he hadn't had time to get his present yet, so would it be ok if we just waited until Monday to get it. Charlie even volunteered to bathe the girls so that Dad would have time to get him his present. We even had Charlie in tears at one point. So, he was VERY excited to show off his new game!

Aunt Emily got Charlie a radio controlled car. I guess Brett thought she may have spent too much money, notice the surpised look on his face.

All of Charlie's friends at the party. It's nice that Charlie has so many great friends!

Charlie trying to conceal a smile as he choses something to wish for!

And finally he blows out all the candles!
We love you Charlie and hope that you had a great birthday!
