Better Late Than Never!

Here are all of the fun details from Hunter's 10th Birthday...about 12 days late.

We started out the (early) morning with presents from us...complete with new basketball shorts and a very special quarter, wrapped in a piece of black construction paper and a lot of tape.  (Bet you can't guess who that was from...LOL!)


 Then Hunter had a double-header in Benton City...he lost both games but did a darn good job!


Picked up the cake, hurried home and cleaned house, then friends came over for pizza, cake and ice cream!  Oh, and a Nerf gun war...
Went to the hockey game!  The boys all had a blast...so did the adults!  The Americans won, Hunter got his name and birthday put on the scoreboard and there was a huge brawl at the end, which is always good!  Ha!

The next day was Superbowl Sunday, so we of course had to take a cake to Grandma's to celebrate AGAIN! 

All-in-all, it turned out to be the best 10th birthday we could have given our awesome boy.  :)  He told us more than once that it was "The best birthday ever"...and that is exactly what we were aiming for.


My Son is Turning 10?!

Some of you don't remember or didn't know my Hunter when he was this little...but for those of you who do remember him...aren't you glad I put these pictures on here?!  Looking through the scrapbook, Dave & I always shake our heads and ask each other how on earth we allowed our baby to go places with that head of hair.  Haha! 

Tomorrow, February 4th, our Hunter Reece will turn 10 years old.  I just put him to bed and told him it was his last night as a 9 year old.  He grinned ear to ear and said, "I'll be a decade!"  I can't even put into words how special Hunter is to us.  From the time he was born, he has brought complete joy to us each and every day.  He is funny (he must get that from me-haha), smart, good at sports, an awesome big brother and just an all-around wonderful human being.  He is probably one of my best friends, to be honest.  He and I spend a lot of time talking about things, and his maturity always surprises me.  He can beat most of our family at Jeopardy, and if the child grows up and ever happens to make it onto the show "Cash Cab", he will most definitely win a ton of money.  LOL! 

He loves his family, is a loyal friend, always tries to do the right thing, and is (most of the time) a pleasure to be around.  There is no doubt in my mind that he will grow up to do great things, and I am so excited to see what God has planned for his life.  I am so thankful to the Lord for giving us this boy, and we are honored and proud to be his parents.
