Mr 7's Birthday! (Or hello Mr 8!)

This week saw Mr 7 become Mr 8. Crazy, huh? Time flies! Hard to believe that my baby is 8 years old now. His greatest wish for his birthday was to spend it with some homeschooling friends at their house. A big ask I thought, but this homeschooling Mum made it a beautiful day for my Mr 8 and he had a wonderful time. The Jedi costume was a present and they made the most of it by being Jedi Warriors most of the day. (As you do)

Even when they played "pin the moustache on Darth Vadar" (a game invented by Miss 11). It was a glorious day and Mr 8 had a wonderful time. (Check out the vintage tablecloth we used as a blindfold!)

So now he's even older.

Oooo, happy birthday to Mr 8! Yikes. Having my own baby just turn 8 in September, I feel your pain girlfriend! :O) We CAN NOT be getting that old that our baby is 8! Am I right?! :O) Maybe I should have another one...aaaah, scratch that -- I'll take old. :O) It looks like he had the best day! What fun.

Happy birthday Mr 8!! My "baby" will be 24 in a couple of weeks!! Now that is some serious time that has flown by! He is resigned to the fact that I will always refer to him as my "baby"...because he is the youngest and he will always be the youngest.......!
