He's the only one that truly appreciates a "hot now" Krispy Kreme doughnut. Mmm. Mouth watering just thinking about it.
We had saved a few of his presents so that he had something to open.
My sweet friend Beth sent the boys matching bathrobes for their birthdays. We've never had robes - any of us. But they were BEYOND excited! They were excited to have an option other than "get dressed" and I was happy they wouldn't come downstairs in their underwear anymore!! (and since i'm posting this after the fact, I can testify that they wear these ALL the time!!)
Happy Birthday Josiah! I can't believe that you are 8 years old already. You have grown so much this year - not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually. I have been so proud to watch you grow and blossom this year. You have grown so much more confident and self-assured this year, and I am SO thankful for that. For a long time you were so shy and reserved, but this year you have really been more sure of yourself and have reached out and made some wonderful friends. You are alot like me - more naturally cautious, black and white, and a rule-follower. Those traits will serve you well, but don't ever let them keep you in a box either. Don't be so set in keeping the rules that you lose sight of loving people. God has big plans for you Josiah. Always follow Him first, and He will guide your paths and make them straight. I love you, my sweet Josiah David!
