It’s hard to believe Lucas is now double digits. We celebrated on his actual birthday with dinner at Benihana with the Lees. This is an odd turn of events, as Lucas used to really dislike any outing to Benihana, but now it is on his short list.
Afterwards at home, we opened gifts from all of his generous grandparents, aunts and uncles. He’s been asking for Lazer Chess all year long and I told him to put it on his list. He was so happy. Aunt Jen got him his annual big Lego project, which he will wait to do with her during Christmas. I’m secretly really jealous of all of his Legos.
Ellie had her birthday party on Saturday, and on Sunday, pretty much the same crew came over to celebrate with Lucas for his party. He is really into “Keeper of the Lost Cities,” so Kate helped plan his usual themed birthday party and activities. He has a wonderful group of friends from school and old family friends.
Happy 10th Birthday, Lucas! We love you.
