Happy Birthday, Xavier!!

WARNING: This post has NOTHING to do with crafting and is going to be picture heavy.

Today, the love of my life, turned 8! He has been SO excited and I'm so happy that he's been having a great day. The celebration actually started on Saturday as we tend to celebrate my mom's birthday (which is on the 24th) and Xavier's birthday together. So my mother and father came up to spend the day with us on Sunday. Mom received presents from us (an outfit, new digi camera-because her's is horrible, and a charm filled necklace). She loved it all. She also got an awesome lemon curd filled cake.
Xavier also received two video games for his DS. The icing on the cake, is we then all went to a place called "Craig's Cruisers" for lunch and activities. For those of you that are wondering...Craig's Cruisers is like Chuck E Cheese ampted up but not quite as nice, at least food wise, as Dave and Busters. Nonetheless, we had a great time playing games and spending time together.

On Monday, my little guy woke me up just to remind me to tell him, "Happy Day Before His Birthday." Cute, right???

Today, he woke me up for his happy birthday hug.  He was wondering where his presents were, but I had to tease him for a bit. I think he's been looking for them...hahaha. (Note to self: Next year, I'm going to do a scavenger hunt for him to find his presents.  I think he'll like that!) I knew the whole time that they were in a huge pile on the living room floor but I didn't tell him....he had to wait for us to get up and come down with him to watch him open them.  He decided that breakfast could wait (homemade waffles and bacon are his favorite!) and we opened presents.  Check out his haul:

After presents, we all got dressed into our real clothes and headed to Fire Mountain and then to Chuck E. Cheese to play some games.  We all had a great time. Then we had to go and pick up Xavier's cake. 
 He had no clue what it would have on it so he was pretty suprised to see one of his favorite toys.  He would have rather had a Beyblade on it....but he said this was okay too :P.  Gotta love that kid!  Then we were on our way home to play some of his new games and rest. I am so glad he had such a great day....he deserves because he's a great kid.  I was definitely lucky to get him.....and he's so excited about being 8!  Can't wait to see what this year brings.  Thanks to all of you that got all the way to the end of the post! We hope the remained of your week is amazing and blessed. 

 Ciao, Ciao!!

Nicole: I am so glad I just found your blog today. I love the birthday cake for Xavier, and your style of card-making is so pure. It inspires me. I joined your blog today. I would so honored if you would also visit and "follow" my little blog. It would mean so much to me, and I hope you like my work as much as I am enjoying yours.
Blessings to you and your family,

Very cute post! I enjoyed every line and every picture of this post. It was really touching. We don’t know when our kids grow up. My little kid will also turn 10 this month and I am planning a surprise party for him in some event space NYC nearby.
