Drake is 8!
Drake turned 8 on Dec. 31, 2009. We had our annual Happy Birthday Drake/Happy New Year's party at our house. Unfortunately, we didn't have the great turnout we are used to. We had a great time, though. Drake requested a chocolate ice cream cake. He opened presents and we ate cake and then the kids played wii and ran crazy through the house while the adults played games. It was an enjoyable evening.
Drake and I have a running joke every year. I always tell him he isn't allowed to get older and he explains that he can't help it. For some reason, I meet Zoa's new phases of life with excitement while I feel sad about letting the little boy that Drake once was go. He has turned out to be such a smart and interesting child. I love having a conversation with him because he always surprises me. We are grateful that he is part of our family. He will be baptized on Saturday, January 16. We are looking forward to watching him take that important step.
