The Birthday Boy



We had Cade's birthday party at Laser Tag. It was easy enough. All you do is just show up. When Bryce and Braden were little, I used to do the elaborate themed parties with these huge, expensive cakes. They were adorable, but I'm so over that! These days, I'm going for the easy out. Have the party and go home.

Cade was so excited about his birthday. The whole day he kept saying, "This is the best day! I am officially 8!" I don't know if he was un-officially 8 at some point, but now its official. It may have to do with the fact that he is so big. Everyone always thinks he's much older than he really is.

Are you wondering what in the world I'm doing posting at this early hour? I guess I just wanted to torture myself today, so I woke up at 5:05 and thought it was 6:05 and started my day! I didn't realize it until I had already washed my hair. I knew if I got back in bed, that would be the end of me, so here I am.

Enjoy your day...the weekend is almost here!

Happy Birthday Cade! I didn't realize that Broughton & him are the same age! He is bigger (taller) which makes him look older. :)
