Eamon turned 8 yesterday!
When asked if he felt older, he replied "Yeah, a little bit".
His birthday dinner was the Pizza Hut Dinner Box:
He was dying to open a present and couldn't wait until after the cake, and because he is SUCH a good boy who is often forgotten about (middle child problems) we let him open his best present in between dinner and dessert:
I'm always focused on taking photos of the birthday boy, and then upon review love seeing how all the siblings are delighting in his gifts with him:
|He got the remote controlled truck he wanted!|
Love these faces...Xander is like "Thank you for my present", Andrew is hysterical, John-Paul is jealous, Eamon is thrilled, Maggie is shocked and Declan is like "WHAT IS HAPPENING?":
They all ran outside to try it out, and Xander put on Maggie's sneakers in his rush out the door:
|Eamon played with it first, then let each of the kids have a minute and a half turn. So generous ;)|
|"Drive through my legs!"|
Gammy and Grandpa gave $8 and a miraculous medal, which Eamon had asked for. He then had it blessed by Monsignor after Mass today, which happened to be Monsignor's 50th birthday.
|Love Maggie here.|
|Xander denying Grandpa a kiss as soon as he laid eyes on the cake.|
His birthday cake request was "a chocolate cake with coffee frosting and chocolate chips, but not too sweet or Andrew might get a bellyache."
Eamon is obsessed with Pokemon cards. The boys all love them even though I don't get it at all. He also got a new soccer ball, a Beyblade, a juggling set from Nana and Gramps, and a future sleepover at his godparent's house. He said his 8th birthday was great! Just like him :) We love you Eamon, with all your quirky ways and sweet as pie personality.
