Zander is 10

Tomorrow is really Zander's 10th birthday...but he has asked if we can celebrate today. Since all are going to be home at a fairly decent time tonight, and three of us have to leave very early seems like a good idea. He's asked for chicken legs for dinner. We've made an ice cream cake, the presents are wrapped......and FINALLY....Jared and Michael are home!!!! 

Zander has made such great strides. Many of you know his story. I can hardly recognize in him the little boy who refused to interact with the world, spent his days flapping and rocking, chewing and hitting his head on walls.... He's come so far. We've taught each other much. 

He was SO EXCITED to open his presents....a couple of science kits, some 3 D coloring things, a K-nex roller coaster thingy, a star wars model.....

Loves science and has two kits to play with 

Stacia was very happy to give this to Zander

Yes, at the APPOINTED time he got a nerf gun to match Nolan's

And the cake of his choice!
We spent the rest of the evening chatting and watching a movie. 

Choosing Joy!
