Today we're celebrating my little guy's 9th birthday. It's hard to believe that he's already nine years old. We have a fun weekend planned starting with breakfast with daddy before school. I'll pick him up from school, we'll head out to dinner and then the high school varsity football game. Marcel is being recognized at half time for being a "good supporter of friends who need extra help at school." Our school system has an anti-bullying program called "My Voice. My Choice." Marcel is a very loving little guy; hates conflict and in his own words told us the other day, "I don't want to be a predator. I want to be a peacemaker." He was talking about not wanting to kill a cricket in the basement!...but this does sum up who he is. He is a very, very happy little guy and definitely shares his happiness with others. We're really proud of him for being recognized for being a good friend/classmate. We'll be sure to snap a few pictures.
The birthday celebrations will continue with a baseball themed birthday party on Sunday with a few of his friends. According to Marcel, here's the plan for the party:
- Normal birthday cake "like we always get" from Kroger (baseball themed with a 10-3 score for his birthday month year and the player wearing a 9 since Marcel is 9). He doesn't miss a beat that one.
- Wiffle ball game in the backyard.
- Water balloon toss
- Pinata (or a pina colada...as he calls them)
- Pizza with sausage and pepperoni
Marcel brightens up every day with his outgoing love for live. We love you little man...and here's to another great year. xoxo
