Tim and I woke up with this big 9 year old in our bed. Neither one of us even knew when he got in the bed. I guess 9 year old boys can be sneaky like that. Especially when it is your birthday. And guess what.... I didn't mind it at all. Pretty soon it will be so uncool to crawl in bed with your parents. It has been a really long time since he has done this. Actually it has probably been since he figured out how to work the TV and Video games by himself. Really who wants to get in bed with your parents in the morning when you can play video games or watch TV instead.
He got to open one present that morning and the rest he opened right before we went out to his birthday dinner.
We have started a tradition that when it is your birthday you get to choose where we go out to eat. You get to choose anywhere you want to go and you get to order anything you want. Noah chose Market Place this year ( I might have made just a little suggestion and mentioned their chocolate mess dessert). Dad and I lucked out because kids eat free there this month on Monday thru thursday nights. WOOHOO
He wanted to have the flaming cheese dip for the appetizer.
The chocolate Mess. YUM.YUM
We had a great time celebrating Noah's Birthday. I will do another post for the party.
