Thomas turned 12 today!
It is really, really hard to believe.
This was a very light week for us so we had the day to spend any way he wanted.
He got up early so he could open presents before Dad left for work.
He chose a number of "necessary" items like a fancy charger for the car for his electronics.
And we surprised him with a Kindle. He was really shocked and spent the entire day getting to know it and downloading apps.
Because of the inability to add any parental controls to a Kindle, he knows we are checking out his activity nightly when he "turns it in" to us at 8:00 p.m.
He absolutely loves it and all the gifts he received. He spent the day smiling and thrilled that he's 12.
We also set up his facebook account today. I doubt he'll spend much time there since he's not a girl :)
But he can keep up with friends and family a little more now.
He chose to go to our local drive-in hamburger place for lunch, and then we saw "Brave" at the movie this afternoon. Then we met Dad at Zaharako's for supper and ice cream.
A wonderful, wonderful birthday I think!
