George turns 9 whether or not I'm ready...

Truth:  I didn't forget George's birthday, I just got my days mixed up.  I swear.  When I looked at the calender, I thought the 21st was Monday.  Not Sunday. 

Evidence:  On Friday, when Mom and Dad stopped by with dinner from El Pollo Loco (my favorite...go try it) I said, "Hey Mom, I think we're going to have a family party this year for the boys.  So come to dinner on George's birthday on Monday."
This evidence proves that I didn't simply forget my oldest son's birthday. 

Verdict:  Either way, I suck because on the actual day of George's birthday I didn't have any of the following items:  Cake, Ice cream, gifts, candy, and any other type of party item you can imagine. 

So, to make sure George had a great day, we sent him down to Grandma and Grandpa's house for all-you-can-play Nintendo, while we (yes, Mark was as much a part of the forgetting/confusement as I was) totally went to the Walmart . . . on the Sabbath . . . which, I promise, is not something we typically do.  But, given the pathetic circumstances, we felt it a must. 
In the end, I think George had a great 'family' party with his grandparents from both sides and his siblings.  Here's my handsome guy.  I can hardly believe that I had him 9 years ago!  Time sure flies and my baby just gets cuter and cuter. 

Oh, and of course we used today as a family photo-op day. 

My Georgie.

My Three Sons.
My boys.
My baby girl.

ha ha ha, that is so funny! Poor George - he probably told all his Primary friends what a sad day he was having.

Maybe a visit from his favorite cousins ever this year will ensure year 9 is not a total waste. ;)

I'm glad it all seemed to turn out okay. :-) What a beautiful family you have. All your boys are so handsome, and you and Ruby are just gorgeous. I hope you have a great week!

What great pictures! You should be a photographer or something. :)

And I've done that with the day thing. I'm sure he will only be scarred for 10 years.
