8 is GREAT!!!

Dallin had a birthday yesterday and he turned 8!
We celebrated by going skiing as a family and then to Red Robins for supper. Dallin got some fun presents which he kept thanking me for and saying " Mom, this has been the best day of my life"!! What more could a mom want to hear on her childs birthday.
I had fun looking back for a picture on each of his birthdays and here they are... all 9 of them (including the day he was born)

January 9th 2002 Dallin enters the world!
It was a fast delivery and I was so excited and couldn't stop saying "I'm done... I'll never have to do this again"!! Well, we all know how that turned and aren't we glad it did!
January 9th 2003 Dallin's first birthday. All the older kids remember this cake as a favorite.
January 9th 2004 Dallin turns two. Not sure about the "special effects"?
He's pretty cute though!
January 9th 2005 Birthday #3
January 9th 2006 Dallins 4th birthday
January 9th 2007 Happy 5th birthday!
January 9th 2008 Dallin turns 6 and has a Pirate party with friends
January 9th 2009 7 years old.
January 9th 2010!! 8 is GREAT!!!

Turning eight is a pretty big deal and I am so excited for Dallin as he has chosen to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a few short weeks. In true boy form he is even more excited to go to Cubs this next Wednesday and be a part of all the fun that happens there!

Here are just a few random things about Dallin at 8
- He is learning to play the Violin
- He loves to read and is on book 7 of the Harry Potter series.
- He is a great friend to his little brother Sam
- He always remembers to read his scriptures at night.
- He likes to play his new Nintendo DSi but...
- He would rather read Calvin and Hobbs and play Lego!
-He is full of energy and and enthusiasm and we love him very much!!!

Best of '09

Todays post was inspired by a little creative exercise on Stacy Julians BLOG. I am not a scrap booker... but I read her blog because I really like her positive outlook, amazing creativity and her love for all things colorful. I didn't manage to pick these photos in the alloted 12 minute time frame, but i did manage to stick to just 12, which was way harder than I thought.
So here is the Davidson's 2009 Year in Review!
