Saturday was his actual birthday and his friend party. We were going to go to the movie theater but last minute changed to a movie at our house since there were no kid movies playing. We watched "How To Train Your Dragon 2" and had popcorn and mints. Then headed to Arctic Circle for ice cream cones. The kids were so excited and SO cute about the whole thing. He also opened up presents there. He got.... Candy and gum from Tanner - Movie, butterfinger, and Pokemon cards from Ashtyn and Camden - Ninja turtle guy from Waylon - Ninja climbers from Kayla - 3D puzzle from Brayden - Book, Pokemon cards, Ninja turtle bracelets and a bookmark from EJ.
That night we let him open his birthday cards. He got $40 plus 12 of his state quarters from Grandma Sue and Grandpa Larry - $15 from Great Grandma and Grandpa - $10 from Great Grandpa Halversen - $9 from Aunt Danielle and Cousin Warren. He was able to buy a Ninja Turtle van and deposit $50 into his account.
Sunday night he got ANOTHER party. We went to Grandma April and Grandpa Brian's house for Mexican food. He also got to choose his favorite strawberry/banana ice cream. They gave him a new CTR ring and $10. Charlene also brought over a $5 check and a $2 bill. He was very excited!!!
Monday Jeirk and I brought candy bars to his classroom and sang to him. His teacher this year is Mrs. Davis and we looooove her! Seriously it isn't birthDAYs but birthday WEEKENDS. :-) We love Branson so much and can't believe he's alread 9!!
