Amarin has entered the world of teens! And we actually are happily excited about this!
Teens are fun!
Dad made Amarin's favorite breakfast...spicy sausage-gravy with biscuits.
Later, Amarin chose to eat at Culvers for dinner. A balloon lady just happened to be there, so all the kids got a balloon configuration...aliens, ninjas, and a monkey-in-a-tree.
We then noticed that Amarin's birthday buddy from church, Mr. King, was celebrating his birthday there, too! He had another balloon ninja for Amarin.
Home we went to open gifts. Jenna made him a card, telling him how cute and special he is.
Charlie bought him two HotWheels cars.
Jacob gave him a new Lego book. Apparently one can never have too many of them.
Mr. and Mrs. King stopped by and gave him a funny t-shirt.
We surprised him with a quadcopter...a helicopter-type-thing that takes photos from high in the air.
Laura...well, she just wasn't impressed with this part of the night at all. We were laughing at her because she kept holding her breath.
Cake time with his traditional icecream cake. He insisted on making it himself, and putting Christmas sprinkles on top.
Happy 13th birthday, Amarin! We love you!
