...just ask Noah!!! I can hardly believe that my firstborn is already 8 years old, but he was born on October 22, 2004, and then I blinked, and here we are 8 years later!!! He had quite the celebrations this year.....
Cupcakes at school
|These are his best friends here with him. It was also bandanna day for Red Ribbon Week, because our school is going to "band" against drugs!!!|
Then cupcakes with the team after practice
|Still in shock that the candle is an "8"|
|Happy Birthday to You!|
Then Saturday, we partied at the house!!! Unfortunately, I did not get lots of pictures from this party, simply because I was living in the moment, but here are a few high points.
|The birthday boy with dad and mom!|
|His Miami Heat Birthday Cake!|
Noah had lots of fun with lots of family and friends at his party. We are so thankful for the wonderful people who are all a part of our lives. He also got several nice gifts, including a Wii....which he has wanted for years now!!! While gifts aren't everything, it's pretty much the only thing we got pictures of!!!! A friend ran in and grabbed my camera, and here are a few we caught in snapshots...
|A football signed by Donte Hightower (he played for Bama last year) and the ball reads, "Happy 8th Birthday Noah!"|
|A Miami Heat Championship T-shirt......and yes, we let that kid in the orange and blue come.......after a slight hesitation!|
|His Julio Jones jersey.....you know we love our Foley boys!!! We watched him all throughout high school when my in-laws worked for the Alabama Sheriff's Boys Ranch, and had a child in their home who was the quarterback then. Also, the hubs used to work with Julio's dad, so we go way back......otherwise, it's Black and Gold all the way!!!|
|A couple of Wii games to accompany his new favorite past-time!|
And like so many good things, this day had to come to an end also......but, what a wonderful 8 years I have had as the mom of Noah, and cannot wait to see him grow up, and serve the Lord in his calling. Sweet Noah, Mama wishes you many, many more!!!!
