Daniel is 9 already! For his birthday, he wanted to go to dinner at Old Country Buffet and then to the movies with his friend Luke. On Tuesday we had cake and presents, and then on Thursday we went to dinner and the movie. He really wanted to see the movie Ratchet and Clank, but apparently it was so bad that it wasn't playing in any theaters near us. So I gave him the choice of driving to Tempe or Phoenix to see it, or seeing Angry Birds instead. He was a good sport about it, and chose to see Angry Birds. Emily and Nathaniel both had plans after dinner, but the rest of us went with him to see it. Daniel is so much fun. He loves his family and always has a hug for everyone. I am so proud of him!!!
