nine

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Another day that was all about a number. 
Andrew turned nine today.  And my list was full.  Because I waited until today to do everything for this boys big day.  I try not to procrastinate,  but with three in a row, I sort of loose my steam.
There were nine balloons.  The cookies were baked and dropped off at school.  The gifts were purchased and wrapped.
The cake was made.  The handburgers were grilled.  And we were reminded of how fast they grow, but how young nine still is.  (He still calls them handburgers.)  

As Andrew says, eight is great, but nine is fine.
I believe it is honey, I believe it is.

  21. Nine is fine--that's so cute! My sons' birthdays are two days apart. It's a lot, but we get it all over with at once. Three spread out within 6 weeks would be tough!

  22. Welcome to the nine year old club Andrew! I'm sure you and Ryan would have a FINE time together. I caught Ryan playing with his trucks this AM before school. Somedays they seem so old and then other days they remind you of how young they really are. Happy day to you too Leslie!

  37. Happy Birthday! Ah, yes, 9. My Ben is 9 and it is very true - this age seems so much older but in so many ways, they are still so young. Funny about the handburgers - Ben calls lots of things weird and actually until he hears the right way of the word, goes with his own. The other day he told me I was a cheapsteak. Kids are great. Enjoy!

  38. What always is a turning point for me is when their cute proununciations move way to the real proununciations.
    So my husband & I are the ones - in order to hang onto the time in life - to ask for the madagazine to read about the amables as we cross the goldengrate bridge...this weekend in honor of Andrew I will have to grill turkey handburgers! ;)

  55. Another Happy Birthday to Andrew! But what I'd really like to know is how you get your computer screen to look like that - To Do List, Weather and Calendar popping up?! Does it do that every day? I love that and am not very good at finding stuff like that... any tips?
