Sunday, the 14th, was Cameron's actual seventh birthday. After church, we came home and did a kid's favorite thing to do on their special day: open presents!
First up was one of those rectangular, flat pieces of paper. My kids have received enough of these to know that they usually contain some dollar bills inside! Cam had already opened up one that contained a check (THANK YOU GREAT GRAM!!) and now, it was time for a second one!
Cameron is such a special, unique child. A few months ago, I got new dishes--Fiestaware. I have been wanting them for a while, and took a lot of time picking out just the colors I liked. When I got the dishes, all three of the boys picked out "their" colors. Ethan picked the red, Colin picked--his favorite--turquoise, but Cameron was distressed. He wanted the color black, but I hadn't chosen to buy the black. (Mommy wanted COLOR!) So each night, he picks a color to eat on, while the other two boys eat on "theirs"--but it's just never "his color".
So thankful for my first October birthday boy and looking forward to celebrating the next one in just a few short days!!
