It is hard to put into words what this kid means to me! He is wise beyond his years and has the BIGGEST heart!

I love him to the depths of my soul. Last Thursday was his 7th birthday. Since we no longer do family parties (a whole long boring story) I try to make their day special. Rhett woke up to “Elvis” holding a note for him.

It was the start of a birthday scavenger hunt. Each clue led to a present and another clue.

He loved it!

Later in the morning we went to see Arthur Christmas and then took him to Cheesecake Factory (his choice) for his birthday dinner.

I loved celebrating him. He is such an appreciative and fun kid.

I have been so excited for him this year too, because there has been a lot of this going on!

Last year he didn’t place in a single tournament. This year is becoming a whole different story. So far he has 3 first places and a 3rd place! Woo hoo! Talk about exciting!

Oh, what a handsome and adorable little man. My oldest is a wise one with a caring heart as well. It sounds like he enjoyed a wonderful day with the most important people in his life!

Where did you get that bag? My 11 year old LOVES the Cowboys!! I want to get him that for Christmas.

So…what’s the long boring story? Someone was bound to ask, so I let it be me.

Alice, I got the bag from Gordman’s. They have a ton of local team stuff. You should definitely check it out. =)

Maybe some time I will bore you with my family drama. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What fun! Looks like he had a great birthday! We used to do scavenger hunts leading to birthday gifts, too, when our boys were younger. You’re making great memories!

Enjoyed browsing through your blog – you have a lovely family!
