Hudson turned 8 on March 1st! I can't believe Joel and I have been parents for 8 years. It still literally feels like yesterday that he was born.
His class had their "Living Museum" presentations on his birthday, so for Hudson, that was extra fun! He picked Thomas Edison, which turned out to be perfect for him. I think he and Thomas Edison would have been great friends! They definitely have similar "engineer" brains! Ha! Hudson did all the research though which included reading multiple books, wrote a 2 page paper, and wrote a speech. It was a lot of work for him.
On the day of his birthday, he was up bright and early and ready to be Thomas Edison for the day! We even sprayed his hair gray although you can't really tell in the picture below.
He had a donut tower for breakfast...this was all I could come up with. Joel was out of town and having to get everyone ready that morning to drive carpool was pretty much chaos. But, we did sing to him and let him blow out the candle! He opened one present too!
When we got home that evening, Hudson begged to open another gift! Joel didn't want him opening everything without him being home, but I just couldn't say no when he wanted to open "just one more!" We ended up celebrating the big 8 for several days!
Happy Birthday sweet Hudson! We are so proud of the big boy you are becoming!!!
