And of course, yesterday was our Joe's birthday - last year in single digits! I know parents always say this, but it really is hard to believe he's 9 years old!
My parents sent Joe's gift to our house so he could open it on his actual birthday ...
|His very own "Going to Grandma's" piece of luggage! He loves all the pockets.|
And speaking of pockets, I hid the presents from us inside the bag.
A "vintage" (ha-ha) 1995 Star Trek: The Next Generation playset! It's a model of the Enterprise, complete with Data, Riker (with beard) and Picard action figures.
Searching for the next present ...
|Lego: Lord of the Rings Wii game!|
Joe's birthday dinner was chili dogs, with apple cobbler for dessert.
Tonight we're continuing the birthday tradition of our friend Eli coming over for dinner, because his birthday is two days after Jeff's. I'm frying chicken, and we'll have red velvet cake for dessert.
