For about a month now, Xander has been counting down until his birthday. He would look on the calender that his grandma and grandpa made and look for his name and then ask what day it was. A few days before his birthday he said, "Only a two more days till Scott's birthday." Then on Scott's birthday, he had to call him and wish him a happy birthday because that meant only 4 more days until his birthday.
The count down continued until the day of his birthday. He was so excited when it was "his" day. He got some really fun things for his birthday. His favorite has to be his Gameboy Advance.
We went to Chucky Cheese to celebrate! We've been telling him since last year, that we would take him to Chucky Cheese for his birthday. I think Chucky Cheese is a magical place. Everyone, including the grown ups had fun playing games and getting tickets.
Why must we try to get as many tickets as we can even if it means playing the same game over and over? And in the end, no matter how hard we tried to get as many tickets as possible, we can still only afford a laffy taffy.
Chucky Cheese is where a kid can be a kid and where and adult can act like a kid.
Xander requested a jelly bean cake for his birthday. I have no idea where that came from. But, when you are the birthday boy, you get what you want. In fact, Xander worked this all day. If he wanted something or wanted to go first he would add, "Because, I'm the birthday boy. . ."
I love this little man of mine and love that he gets to go to school like his big sisters this year!
