HE'S IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS!

Today is my son, Eli's, 10th birthday!!!

We have a fun morning planned with my mom, and in the evening, my sister in-law wants to take him to dinner. He has LITERALLY been counting down the days to his birthday, and instead of a traditional birthday cake, he wants me to make two sheets of brownies with mint chocolate chip ice cream in the middle. We'll see how that goes!

So, since he is turning 10 today, I will list ten things that I love about him (in no specific order).
  1. He's caring
  2. He's creative
  3. He's polite
  4. He's smart
  5. He's funny
  6. He's compassionate
  7. He's charming
  8. He's sensitive
  9. He's a leader
  10. He loves Jesus
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELI!!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

And I finally convinced him to combine his birthday party with my youngest son (who's birthday is in July)!

Happy birthday, Eli! Welcome to an age with double digits! Congrats to your parents, too! At my baby shower for my eldest I refused to have cake. I wanted brownie sundaes! Ice cream and chocolate, nothing better!
