He was very pleased with his gift. I was pleased with myself. I couldn't imagine giving only one gift, but he knew the situation. Our kids do not receive any gifts from any extended family.
Two of the girls made sure he got his 7 whacks plus one to grow on. I have always wondered where that tradition came from.
In our family the birthday person gets to pick where they have dinner. I love the little ones, they go for fast food cheap. I didn't realize that Chick-fil-A had a Family Night and kids eat for free.....score.
