He opened his presents this morning without Tia (she was gone to school but had told us we could go ahead without her). I suspect his favorite presents were the books. He LOVES books and gets annoyed if you borrow one and he discovers you are not using a bookmark, or are using a handy sock or some other odd object as a bookmark.
Here are pictures of Connor blowing out the candles on his cake.
He didn't manage it the first time.
He didn't manage it the second time.
By then Bennett, and everyone else including Connor were laughing so hard that he didn't really manage it the third time either, but he provided us all with lots of amusement.
This is really his second celebration since on Sunday his Grandma F. surprised him with cake, ice cream and a present. Lucky Connor! Aunt Michelle surprised him with a treat today too. It has been a good day for a very good boy. I think we will enjoy having another teenager in the house.
