William is 8!!!!!

On September 8, William celebrated his birthday. It was his year of triple 8's.......

What is triple 8's?

*William was born on the 8th

*He is the 8th child

*And this year he turned 8


(We had some camera issues, so please excuse the poor quality on some of the pictures)





His theme was LEGO!!!!


William was in LEGO heaven on his birthday.....


His brothers also 'really' liked the theme, I believe a couple wished it was their birthday :)


To help spread out William and Ruth Ella's birthday we had part of William's party on Friday night.


The tree topper, a LEGO police officer which is a flash light...it's really neat!



This is William's favorite LEGO guy, because of the beard.


On Friday we had William's dinner and cupcakes....


Menu:


*Cheese Pizza
*Salad with all the fixins,
or at least the ones he likes
-Romaine lettuce, carrots, mixed peppers, cucumbers, feta cheese, sliced almonds, and for him Cesar dressing :)





Presents, this was the part William was going to have to wait for until Saturday, on his real birthday.


OK, so we did give him one gift on Friday night.....Davey & Goliath DVD set. After cupcakes we watched a few episodes :)


Twizzlers....William's favorite candy, Yum!



Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing and crunchy candy sprinkles........


There are so many things for a boy to wish for?!?!



On Saturday William opened his presents before lunch, and then we went out to eat at 'our' family favorite Cracker Barrel. William had a big hamburger and fries....that evening we finished off the LEGO cupcakes.

Now we look ahead to another year for William and all that he will be learning and taking in. We are blessed to have him as a part of our family....cause we wouldn't be complete without him. He is a joy to be around and is always wearing a glowing smile.


WE LOVE YOU !!!!!!


And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord;
It shall rejoice in His salvation.
Psalm 35:9

Happy Birthday William!! We celebrated a birthday on the 8th too. Our baby turned ONE!!! Sounds like you all had a really fun couple of days. We LOVE Cracker Barrel too. Although we have none in our state. :(I love to read how your family celebrates each of you.

Happy Birthday William! Up north when you turn the same age as the number of the day you were born, it is called a golden birthday.

Twizzlers can't be William's favorite candy because they are mine! I have loved them since high school. I would bite off both ends and use them as a straw to drink orange soda! The candy would be devoured when the soda was gone.
Thanks for inviting us to this fun celebration for that precious gift of God to you who is named William!

Is there a family in the United States who does birthdays better than the Munck family? I don't think so. Happy golden birthday William.

My birthday is January 7th. Can you have a party for me?

Happy birthday to him! Josh would have LOVED the theme as well. We enjoy our Legos.

Happy Birthday to your William! I love the thought and joyful care you put into your family's celebrations - the love just shines through.

My William turned 12 on the 12th :-) and requested filet mignon for his birthday dinner, which he thoroughly enjoyed.

Blessings to your William in his eighth year.

I would love to know more about the birthday tree. Do you only decorate it for birthdays or other special days too? How long are the decorations left up? Are the decorations new things or things that you find around the house? I think it is a really neat idea and one that I would like to try. But I would love to hear all about your tree. How did you get started with it?

Can you please tell us more about your birthday tree. How did it get started? How do you decorate it? How long are the decorations left up? Do you use it for other things besides birthdays?
