Cutest Cub Scouts

Thursday, was Andrew's first Cub Scout meeting as a Wolf. He was SO excited and thinks it's pretty cool that he gets to go every week now with his dad. (Nathan is the Webelos leader and Cub Master.)

When he got home he was thrilled to show me that he had made me a recipe holder and to explain that he had made it with three different types of saws. I LOVE Andrew's enthusiasm in everything he does!!

ALL of our kids LOVE to go sledding.....everyone except Benjamin. Every time we go sledding, we ask Benj if he wants to go and he always says, "No Way!", and so mom gets to stays home with him. Well, we all wanted to go on Andrew's birthday so Nathan told him that he could wear ski goggles (he loves much that he wore his swimming goggles to go Christmas caroling last week) when we go sledding and he finally agreed to go. I love that we were actually able to capture on video him having SO much fun and then when asked if he wants to do it again, he says, "No Way!" So much personality!!!

It doesn't look like Spencer is having fun, but he really LOVES sledding so much that he doesn't even need a sled...he'll just go on his bum.

Andrew says, "It's Great to be Eight!!"

Andrew had a GREAT birthday! He got to open presents as soon as everyone was awake. (Nathan found Andrew sitting on the stairs at 6am and made him go back to sleep on the couch until everyone else woke up.) He got a BSU football from Benjamin, a Rubix Cube from Spencer, a book from Sarah, a BSU sweatshirt from Nonnie & Grandpa, money and cards from Grandma & Grandpa, Mom & Dad and cousins that he put towards a NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE.

Here is Andrew "trying out" his new bike. He and dad shopped for the perfect bike a few days before his birthday but he didn't get it until his actual birthday.

We went sledding. Andrew is getting pretty good at snowboarding.

To finish out an awesome day, we ate pizza, had Oreo birthday cake and then watched G-Force. Happy Birthday Andrew!!!

At our Book of Mormon party we told the waiter that it was Andrew's birthday (close enough, right?!) so they sang to him and brought him a yummy dessert. He LOVED it!!!
