Happy Birthday Marcel!


Hello my friends! I'm popping in to wish this adorable little guy a happy 8th birthday!  And truth be told, he's not so little anymore!  It's hard to believe that my baby is 8 years old today. I can't really put into words how much love he brings to our family.  He is a very happy little guy and is EXTREMELY outgoing.  He's seriously never met a stranger and we all laugh saying he's the most popular second grader in Loveland (our community).   Where ever we go, you'll hear a "Hi Marcel!" and we quite often don't know who the people are that know him. On the flip side of the conversation is the funny fact that he can't remember anyone's name and I mean anyone!  He sees his aunts/uncles all the time and quite often confuses their names.  He'll frequently say, "Oh man...now I need to say their name a 100 times in my head so that I can remember it."  Nor is he worried about remembering his birthday!  We've been working on it for the last couple of weeks to remind him it is October 3rd, not August 3rd. Cracks us up that he really doesn't care!  He's quick witted and has an incredible vocabulary.  Each and every day we could write in a journal the funny things he says.

I love you Marcel and hope that you have the best birthday everyday!  And as this post goes live, I'll be going into work a bit late as this little man has requested that I take him to the bus stop for his birthday.  How in the world could I turn that down?  He didn't want me there for the first day of school so this is a special treat.

Of course, here's his card today featuring the colors he requested on his birthday invites.

Oh, I just love your Marcel! Happy Birthday! A walk to the bus-stop? Who could ever refuse such a sweet request! My daughter's 11th birthday is on Saturday, and she has requested complete power over the tv remote control for the day... I think I'd prefer the walk to the bus stop, LOL!

Happy Birthday Marcel - you remind me of another boy who, when I asked in awe, "Struan, do you like EVERONE?", he replied "Well, I haven't met everyone yet, but so far, YES!". Keep that happy attitude and you'll go far in life!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCEL!!! I love that photo of him. I think it really captures his personality. Love what you wrote too, but now I'm crushed that he doesn't remember our names. LOL!!! Great card for your little man.

Maecel sound so much like my David - outgoing, happy and funny! I had to laugh - once more you've brought back memories - both my boys had trouble remembering all their cousins names - ha! I can remember quizzing them with photos before going to my sister's each year for Christmas Eve! :)

Love your card for him - just perfect!

Oh! And how awesome that he wanted you to take him to the bus stop today - more like a present for YOU! ♥
