Eighteen or "we've got a 9 year old in the house!"

Today we celebrated the boy who changed my name from Heather to Mommy, nine years ago! I love this boy so much. And thinking of the fact that he is now halfway to eighteen... well, I will admit I shed actual tears over that.

As soon as he was out of school, I took the boys and raced out to Disneyland so he could collect his $70 gift card. The Castle looked stunning, all decked out for Christmas.

Michael was working across the way, so he joined us for dinner and a quick spin on Space Mountain - birthday boy's choice. Do you know who else shares a birthday with Nathan? Why none other than Mickey Mouse himself! It's appropriate, as they are both quite the character!
And then we cut up to downtown Los Angeles where we took the boys to see Mary Poppins at the Ahmanson Theatre. Guess who else joined us? My Mom and Dad! Everyone loved the show, especially my Dad who was notorious for falling dead asleep in all of my high school and college productions...
Nathan told me it was his best birthday ever, despite the fact that he didn't get to open a single gift! We wanted to wait until the next day since we didn't get home from the show until after 11:00 p.m.


No change from Day 17!
