Nine year old boy

Here is little chick #2 nine years ago. He had his 9th birthday on Monday, it does not seem like it was that many years ago when he was little. Now I could hardly pick him up he has grown so much.
He was surprised by a new bmx bike on his birthday. He really had no idea that he was going to be getting a bike. Last summer he was really hard on his bike and popped a few tires because it is just so cool to skid when you are a boy. Well we said we would only fix the tire so many times. He then started riding the Roosters 26" bike so it was really time he had one to fit himself.
It was such a nice day that he had to try it out. Of course he now want to raise up the seat and try to learn a few tricks. I am sure that my heart will stop when I see him practicing his new stunts. Hopefully we will not have any broken bones.
Look at all of the candles on that cake. He blew them all out in one great big breath. The cake was left over from a fundraiser that I had worked at the night before and worked well for our small celebration. On Saturday, he will be having a party with a few friends and I will be decorating a cake for that. He wants me to make a camouflaged cake. I will keep you posted on how that turns out.

Happy Birthday! I thought of you so much on Monday! You look so grown up on your new bike. All you are missing is a helmet! I can't wait to see pics of your camo birthday- Jim would think that was very cool. Love you!

Papa and I were both very happy, and surprised to get letters from all the chicks today! ! ! I hope you received the gift from us. Sorry it got there late.
