12 years old already!!!!

My dear, are my baby that made me a Mommy.  That was truly one of the greatest moments of my life....hearing Daddy whisper to me "it's a boy!".....the best birthday present I could have ever received.  And now you're 12 years old!  It's so hard to believe since I'm only 29!  (hahaha)  Today we celebrated you -- the amazingly tender heart you have, the ways you make us laugh, the smiles you bring to our faces, the joy that can be seen in your eyes, and the way you love Jesus.  I pray this next year is one of the best ever.  I love you sooooooo much!

The birthday decorations -- there are 12 balloons!

The birthday boy chose his favorite supper -- taco bake!  I'll share the recipe another time.  It's very easy and  oh so good!

We had to start eating before Daddy got home from work.  He made it just a couple minutes after I took this picture. 

The goofy cake!  Noah loved it -- looked just like a grill with hamburgers and hot dogs!


Pop Rocks and bubble gum from Eli and Joey.

Crunch bar from Abby (favorite candy bar!)

The movie "Short Circuit" -- one of his favorites.  (Super good deal because I found it for $5 at Wal-Mart!  Woo hoo!)

A Wind Flyer -- obviously VERY excited about it.  

A batting helmet for baseball

Awww.....such sweet moments.  It was a fantastic day all around.  WE LOVE YOU, NOAH!!!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
