Happy 9th Birthday Kyle!

     Today is Kyle's 9th birthday! I can't believe he is already nine years old. He was 5 and a half when we first met the boys. He was such a little boy then and he has now become such a neat little person! Birthdays are a big deal in our family. I put some decorations on Kyle's door and in the kids' bathroom. There is a Happy Birthday sign hanging in the dining room as well. We have all our family come over to celebrate with us.
     Each birthday the kids get to decide what type of cake they want and how they want it decorated. This year, Kyle is REALLY into Cars and Cars 2 so he picked a Cars cake. Billy and I always enjoy decorating the cake in our our Dennis Family Cake Boss tradition!
The last three days have been unseasonably warm (50's) and the kids have been able to play outside. Kyle's cousins were here for his party and the kids had a great time playing outside. The day ended with Kyle opening his presents. The downside of his birthday being in the first few days of January is that Christmas was 14 days ago. Santa brought everything that was Kyle's wish list so he got a few small things and some money to save until he has something else that he is wishing for!
