Happy Birthday Nolan!

Sunday was Nolan's 7th Birthday! My oh my how that child has grown! It's so hard for me to believe that he's in first grade and getting to be a "bigger boy".

Since he chose to do a weekend at Disney with a friend back in October, we just had a small family party Sunday evening at our house.

I did a few decorations (hardly any) and everything was super simple!

The weather was PERFECT for some grilled hot dogs and chili! In Florida, we can never predict the weather and it turned COLD the day of his party! I LOVE COLD WEATHER!

The kids played on the trampoline, with the biggest kid of all (Cecil's brother)!!

They had fun on the swingset too!

Nolan got so many nice things for his birthday!!

DS Games.....(& more DS games)

Gift card to Chuck E Cheese.....

A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle motorcycle.....
Gift card to Walgreens so he can go buy an Icee after school!
Foosball (is that how you say it?) He LOVES this game!
A new baseball bat!!
Money, which he is very excited about!
Clothes (poor thing needed winter clothes so my mother-in-law hooked him up in that department!!)

After presents, it was time for CAKE! Y'all know I love a good cake! I always make the boys' cakes and Nolan wanted a baseball cake this year.
Here's my big 7 year old blowing out the candles.
And just like that, another year has gone by.......Happy Birthday Nolan!
