Happy 9th Birthday, Drew!!

NINE years old?!  How did that happen?  It feels like just yesterday I was carrying him around on my hip.  I am so proud of Drew.  He always tries his best in school and whatever sport he is playing at the time.  He is the best big brother Kayley and Ryan could ask for - always looking out for them.  His teacher told us that he is always kind to everyone else in the class.  That is every bit as important to us as getting good grades so Andy and I were happy to hear that.  

My brother, Matt, drove over from Omaha to help Drew celebrate his birthday.  He arrived Friday afternoon.  Andy and I left work early so we could get Drew's cake and get home so he could start opening presents.  Drew was pretty excited with all of his presents.  Ryan had a little trouble being patient while waiting for cake.  Drew was looking through his stack of football cards and Ryan really wanted cake.  I caught him on the island with his fingers in the frosting.

Drew wanted to go Fun City instead of having a party so that is what we did.  We left on Sunday morning and drove over to Iowa.  Matt came with and spent a few hours playing with the kids before he drove the rest of the way back to Omaha.  We played lots of arcade games, movie theater thrill rides, laser tag, go karts, bowling, swimming, ballocity, etc.  It was a fun-filled 24 hours!

Sox spent Sunday night with my friend while we were at Fun City.  This friend lets Sox sleep on the bed and get on their couch whenever she wants.  Sox came home and decided she should get right up on our couch too.  :-)
