Hudson had been counting down to his birthday, first by weeks, then by days, finally down to hours. One night last week he was again calculating the hours until his big day. After he figured it all out, he said to me, "Mom only __ more hours until I'm TEN, and only __ more hours until you're 29!" Hudson, you really always were my favorite.

So yes, we were in birthday mode this weekend. Friday I was served breakfast in bed by Cooper and we all stayed there for a while watching TV together.

Nana took me out for lunch while Cooper babysat and then I took the kids to the park for a while in the afternoon.

Tony got home about 4:30, and after opening my presents (Lululemon pants and hoody, and Purdy's) we headed to Milestone's for dinner. Opa and Nana joined us and then we headed back home to play a game. Then later Tony and I watched "The Hurt Locker".

The day went by too quickly, as birthdays often do, but we managed to squeeze in lots of hugs. Tag gave me 40 cents from his piggy bank

Hudson's birthday was finally here and he really enjoyed the whole day. After he opened his presents, him and Tony and Nana went out for breakfast. Then he wanted to go down to Bellis Fair to spend his birthday money. So we all drove down and after carefully checking all the toy aisles of Target and Walmart he found nothing he wanted to spend his money on. He discovered that spending your own money is a lot harder than spending your parents.

We headed home, stopping at our favorite park in Lyndon to play for a while.

A quick few games of Rock Band while I cooked his birthday waffles.(Tag is our official dancer)

Happy Birthday Hudson! Welcome to double digits!
