Levi Turns 8 !!

A Baseball cake complete with Texas Rangers party supplies...gotta love that smile!

Blowing out all eight candles!
Sometimes the celebrations of our "off" birthdays turn out to be just as much fun as those that we plan. Levi's birthday was just such a one. His official birthday is May 13th which was on a Sunday this year, and because of that fact, his birthday became a two day event. It began on Saturday at lunchtime. Levi chose one of his favorite places to eat...Logan's steakhouse. We enjoyed fun family time and then spent time shopping for the rest of the day. On Sunday, which also happened to be Mother's Day, Brad grilled steaks, steak fries, and grilled squash for dinner (It was Yummy!!). Then, we celebrated Levi's birthday with a cake,ice cream and a Texas Rangers baseball game on TV. They were actually showing a Ranger game on ESPN that night...almost as if it were made to order!
Our Levi is an avid baseball fan...he loves to watch games, but he loves to play a game even more! He is a fan of the Texas Rangers (our entire family is ...since we are native Texans and have been fans for many,many one would guess that since we have a son named Nolan,right?!). This precious treasure is a "natural" athlete and finds so much joy in playing games, win or lose. He has a glove and ball with him most of the time, and spends countless hours tossing the ball, playing catch and back yard games (when he can get his older brothers to join him). Levi is full of life and adventure. He loves to be outside and active. He is all-smiles most of the time, and greets each new tasks with gusto. He has a precious heart and loves to help his momma. He has a gentle spirit, and he loves to "care for" and protect everyone. It is a joy to this momma"s heart to watch him play the role of big brother. He loves his baby brother fiercely and gently guides him to doing the right things...He is going to be an amazing daddy some day!
Happy Birthday to our precious treasure,Levi!!
