Birthday Boy









We celebrated Zachary's 8th birthday yesterday at Mimi's (my mom) house. It's funny, every year, I ask the boys what they would like to do to celebrate...and the answer is always the same. Pizza & ice cream cake at Mimi's! It's definately become a tradition in our family to celebrate every milestone and holiday at her house. I guess the kids all like the consistentcy. Aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins all came together once again to celebrate Zachary turning one year older. It's hard to believe my baby is no longer a baby. Makes me a little sad. Those infant and toddler years are a distant memory. Now I will have tween and teen years to contend with soon. I am thankful to have such well-behaved, sweet boys. My Zachary is definately the more ornary of my two. He has a smile as big as his heart and a laugh I could just hear over and over again. He is a snuggler and looks up to his big brother. He loves music and he loves to dance. Definately the entertainer in the family. His enormous big blue eyes will make you melt, and his head full of gorgeous curls are enough to make any girl jealous. His favorite color is green. He enjoys soccer and basketball...and cannot wait to start his second year at surf camp. He spends his days off from school riding his bike, fishing in our pond and pounding the neighbor kids with water balloons! He adores Jesse and constantly reminds him that he is his best friend. Happy birthday to one of the loves of my life...I am so lucky to have been chosen to be your Mommy!  XoXoXo!

Feeling a little better...but not great...and the Botox takes about a week to kick in. Although, since I haven't had it in over a year...it could take a few times to even be effective.

The birthday looks so happy! He's all smiles and sparkly eyes! A pirate theme is a great idea for a party. The banner is just awesome!
