Brady's 9th Birthday

Sadly, Brady's birthday started with another day of no electricity (a consequence of Hurricane Harvey).  Thankfully, we have a gas stove so I could still make him a big birthday breakfast.  And we had all of his presents wrapped and sitting out, which made for an exciting start to the day.  He was so happy and positive and really enjoyed his birthday morning.  And around lunchtime he got an especially great birthday present - our power was restored!!  Brady's 9th birthday was memorable in many ways.  

Most of the big birthday breakfast Brady requested (just missing the biscuits that I couldn't bake without electricity).  And a candlelight breakfast is a fun way to start a birthday.

A very happy birthday boy!

Opening Dawson's present.

Such sweet brothers!  Dawson was excited and happy for Brady on his special day.

More presents.

His very own safe.  This is one of his favorite, most treasured gifts.

At the end of the day, when Brady thought he had received all of his presents, we had this one last surprise for him - a beginner guitar, which he desperately wanted.  Now for the guitar lessons.

He also requested pumpkin pie, instead of cake, for his birthday.

Lookin good with his new guitar!
