Happy Birthday Caeden!

Today is my grandson Caeden's 8th birthday! This is he & his best friend, Aidan....Caeden is on the right. We had his party Saturday @ Brunswick Lanes (a local bowling alley) but he is spending today w/ me. He requested donuts for breakfast & he wanted a coke (which I never allow) also but birthday or no birthday, no wayyyy can he have a coke & donuts for breakfast! Nice try though Caeden! LOL He's chosen Joe's Crab Shack for lunch & then we'll go shopping to spend his birthday money. It's gonna be the best day of the month!

Have to share a funny story w/ you ...I didn't have any cash this morning & didn't want to use a credit card for just a couple of donuts so I borrowed a couple of dollars from Caeden. He willingly loaned it to me but drew up an IOU & made me sign it! I told him, I couldn't believe he didn't trust me & he looked me dead in the eye & said, very seriously, "I do trust you Honey but you forget things." *grins*

I will never forget this day, 8 years ago. Caeden was born w/ severe asthma & allergies, was whisked away immediately & spent several weeks in the NICU before he could come home. It was sooo scary! He had to have breathing treatments twice a day for the first few years but has gradually tapered off them & only requires them occasionally now. And his asthma doesn't interfere w/ football or baseball so that's a blessing to the little sports nut!

I love you so much Caeden....in fact, I love you to pieces!



Thanks for the giggle this fine Monday morning, Cami D. Caeden is precious! And love the 'Honey, you forget things'! BTW - Maureen is having classes and I agreed to present the Shabby Classy Necklace in August. Just FYI. Not sure if you are still interested and if this would be a good venue for y'all. Just thought I'd mention it. Hope your week is cute as Caeden! ~ Angela

How funny!! Does he call you Honey because you call him that? I hear Sugarwings copying my words when she talks to other people sometimes. I just love it that she does that, but wonder how it will fit in at school when she talks like a grandmother instead of a kid.
