Wow! I can't believe that Hunter is already 7. Time sure does go by fast. This year his birthday was on a Sunday, and being 2 days after Christmas, Dave and I went back and forth on if we would celebrate it on his birthday or the day after. We decided to do a little surprise for him, and do it on his birthday. He had no idea anything was going on. Dave and Mckell asked Hunter if he wanted to go downstairs and watch a movie. Hunter thought nothing of it, and followed them downstairs asking, "What movie are we going to watch?" When he got downstairs he saw his cake, presents, and balloons galore! We all yelled "Surprise" He was soo excited, and totally surprised. So Hunter had a GREAT birthday! And he still hasn't even had the extended family party, or his friends party. His favorite things that he got were the Night Raven GI Joe ship and Dave bought him a Call of Duty game for his DS (it is one for kids, not the one like Dave plays) Hunter loved it :)
We love having Hunter in our family. He is so much fun and is such a big helper. Some things that he has done over this past year are:
1- He has learned to ride a dirt bike, and loves taking day trips with his dad and friends to go ride.
2- He loves school. He is in the first grade and his favorite subject is Math and recess. He has gotten 100% on all of his spelling tests so far this year, and he is an excellent reader. It is fun to have him read stories to me and his sisters.
3- He has had a growth spurt these last few months, all of his pants are too short. So I had to buy him new pants that would be long enough, but around the waist they are way to big :) We almost have to double them up with a belt so they don't fall off. He is so tall. On his birthday he is 51 inches tall and weighs 53 lbs.
4- His favorite food is pizza.
5- His favorite movies are Terminator Salvation and GI Joe (maybe because we jsut got them for Christmas :)
6- He went on his first official hunting trips with his dad this year. They went bunny blasting and on a deer hunt.
7- He is getting way to brave in Grandmas swimming pool. He thinks that he can swim without floaties, which he can, but he tries to swim out in the deep which scares both me and grandma.
8- He has played many sports this past year. Soccer, Flag football, and Basketball. His favorite was basketball. Which I think made both of his grandpas happy.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUNTER!!! We love you!!!!!!
