Today was Christian's 12th birthday.
We woke him up with breakfast in "bed", which was really breakfast on the couch.
Since he shares a room with 2 year old Carson, we usually let him sleep on the couch if he wants to so that he can read, etc., after Carson goes to bed.
Carson LOVED singing Happy Birthday to his big brother! He was all smiles!
After enjoying his birthday breakfast, Crib (his nick name) was off to school.
I can't believe how grown up he is getting! He looks like a big guy now!
Carson loved singing the birthday song so much that he wanted Caylie and me to sing it a few times in the car with him today even though Christian was out with Corey doing something that he loves...
Corey and Christian started this little hobby a few months ago, and really have fun doing it. It is a "treasure hunt" that uses the GPS system to go find little "caches". The caches are hidden all over the place. There are probably 20 within 10 miles of our house. Check it out here if you have some kiddos that might enjoy it!
This evening, Christian got to choose where he wanted to eat with the family. He chose Chili's, so we met Corey's parents, his brother in law, and my mom there. We had a great dinner, and then they brought out the Molten Lava Cake for Christian!
Christian got to open his family gifts while we were at dinner. He got some spending money from his grandparents...which he always enjoys, and Corey, Caylie, Carson, and I gave him an ipod nano. He has been wanting one for a long time, so he was very excited!
He is planning to use his money for some ipod accessories, and music, among other things.
Before heading out, we had to take a group picture to remember our guy's big night.
After we got home, Carson had to do one last performance of the birthday song for us...he truly couldn't get enough of it!
Christian will have his official birthday party, with some friends on Friday, and I will post about that later.
