Dominic Turns Another Day Older

Dominic's birthday is a big deal. After all, it's the day he was born on. It's the day when we all celebrate Dominic.  Yesterday was his eighth birthday.

He started the day by determining he should stay in his pajamas all day. He woke me up with the following words of wisdom, "Wish me a happy birthday!"

Then, I made him some white chocolate strawberries.  And, let him eat all of them!

We decorated the dining room for celebrating.

Dominic requested an apple pie for his birthday 'cake.'

Dominic received a new Nerf gun, a bedside table, a new pair of mama-knit socks, several books, and Milk Duds. (This goes along with our "something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read, and just for fun, something to eat" rhyme.)

And, from his brothers, he received a new Wii game. I like the fact that they choose to buy Wii games instead of gameboy games. It means they get to spend more time together, through their gifts.

He even got a hug from the anti-hugger.

This morning, he told me that yesterday was his best birthday ever, and one of the best days of his life. I'm so glad we got that boy in our family. The day he was born was one of the luckiest days of all of our lives.
