It was a fun day yesterday!!

Yesterday was a super fun day in the Wilderness home. It was Garrett's 10th birthday. Last night we had a family party for him.. We kinda played a little trick on him. We hid all his gifts so he could find them (He loves it when we do that) After he found them all we let him open them, first he was a little bummed because he only had 5 gifts not the ten he thought he should have gotten (we normally get them a gift for every year ) I told him his gift were expensive this year so he was getting less gifts. He then started opening them, first some shirts then some underwear, jogging pants and a belt. Lets just say we thought the kid was going to cry. He kept trying to smile and be grateful for what he had gotten. We told him it was time for cake and Ice cream.
As he was sitting there Shelly brought out his surprise gift.. He was so super excited he was speechless..The kids jaw dropped right down to the table and his eyes almost popped out of his head. The boy was so suprised to see the snowboard that he wanted. I Was so happy that he liked it!! It might be worth the broken leg he might get. LOL
Ben was very excited for garret to because he new that would mean that Garret would be taking him snowboarding. Garret is such a good big brother. He always lets Ben tag along.. Ben and Garret spent the rest of the night pretending to snowboard in the house. I think it tuckered Ben out just a little bit.This is how I found him in my bed last night.
I received the best box of goodies yesterday as well I will have to share it later today after I get more pix..

Oh I can remember when my parents would play that game.

Course there was the year I wanted my ear pierced and I opened a package of earrings that weren't clip on's. I was so happy, until I found out they were magnet earrings. My parents were losers!

Happy late birthday!
