("Happy Birthday, Dear Jaden...")
Jaden was so surprised and had so much fun. After his surprise party, we headed to Nana's where he opened gifts from her and Poppa. Then it was home at last where he opened the last of his presents.
A tradition around our parts includes people pinning money to the birthday boy's shirt. Yesterday morning when Jaden and his dad stopped in to see his friend, Mrs. Nina, she was the first to pin Jaden. A couple of folks from the dentist office and even some strangers at Wal-Mart followed suit. By the end of the day he'd received enough money to buy himself a couple of Webkinz. (He and Isaac are having a contest to see who can get the most.) We'll head to the store later today in search of the coveted prize.
He ended up having a great day. It was made special by some good friends, great family, and even a couple of strangers. I pray God blesses each person who was involved in touching Jaden's heart!
