My boy is 10.

I can't believe it.  Yesterday, Andy turned 10.  TEN.  I mean, just a few days ago, he was 9.  And a few days before that, he was this 8 year old little munchkin just joining our family.

But now he is 10.  He's growing up so fast.  And, as he says, he's "practically a teenager."  (gives me heart palpitations every time he says it.)

So, we spent the weekend celebrating!

Andy wanted an Angry Birds cake, so I did my best!  I keep waiting for the kids to request a plain chocolate cake with just candles.   Hasn't happened yet.   But he was really excited to see his cake, and it made the crazy late night worth it.

My parents came up for the day, and after some time spent on the basement, we went out for dinner, then came home for cake and ice cream.

The next day, the four of us went to the Faith and Family night that was hosted by our local Christian radio station to finish celebrating.  We watched the Iowa Energy basketball game, and stayed for the Jason Gray  concert afterwards.

After the concert, the boys stayed to get autographs, and Jason sang Happy Birthday to him.   I believe Andy is now the first person in our family to be sung to professionally for his birthday.

It was a fun way to usher in the double digit years!

    Oh my! When I scrolled down and saw the picture of you and Andy, I thought the picture could also go with the post above it. You are radiantly glowing :)
