Happy Birthday to My 10 Year-old

September 11, 2012 seemed like forever away on September 11, 2002 at 4:17 p.m. when I held Lyndon for the 1st time.  He seemed so big then at 9 lbs. 3 oz & 21 3/4"; however, now it seems like yesterday and he was so tiny....

God has blessed our lives with Lyndon and we cherish the privilege to be his parents. It makes me feel guilty to yearn for another blessing from God, when he has blessed us with a 'perfect' son.
To celebrate Lyndon's 10th birthday we went to WF after school.  Lyndon had decided to save his money for an iPad this summer, so he did chores at home, The Tractor Shop, and Memere's.  His birthday money finally gave him enough that he was able to make his purchase.  After searching online he ultimately decided on an iPad from Best Buy.  He had several questions for the sale associate before selecting his purchase.  He handed over his hard earned money in bills and coins-which he said kind of made him sick to his stomach!   He couldn't be happier with his purchase and found a case at Target.

Lyndon chose Texas Roadhouse for dinner, BUT pleaded to us to PLEASE not let them know that it is his birthday, we agreed.
The next day Lyndon and Layni played with their iPads getting everything just SO.

Happy birthday to the most wonderful boy in the world!  You are such a blessing to us and we are blessed to have you as our son!

Lyndon's 1st Day of 4th Grade

Opening his 1st Day of School surprises.

Lyndon's homeroom teacher (who he adores)...he rotates equally between 3 teachers and LOVES them all!  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a picture of the other two.

Lyndon had a wonderful day and comes home daily bragging on his 4th grade experiences!
