Happy 8th Birthday Son!

Really, I tried for a different picture. 
One with my child smiling and sane, 
but this picture seems to capture 
his goofy eight year old spirit!  

This morning Lil' Expert was up before 6:00 AM.  

"Mom is it official?  Am I officially eight years old?"

I rubbed my eyes and tried to focus.  "Yes, honey it's official."

Lil' Expert did an early morning birthday dance.

He informed me it was going to be one of the "best days ever!"

And so it will be.

Happy Birthday Willie!

Jake and Katie planned to call early but things degenerated rapidly into berserk. Lost homework, chasing the bus, and all the things that conspire to make Friday mornings bedlam.

Great shot! Those posed smiling pictures are never the ones I want to look at years later anyway.

Those personality pictures are so much more fun! I'll bet the next eight go even faster.

The problem is you can not keep them young. Soon there will be no more funny faces. I hope his last forever.
Have a smiley saturday.

I can't believe he is 8 years old already!!. Seems like yesterday when we were celebrating his birth. And we continue to do so with great joy and love.
