true is 7 years old! we had a family party for him last night (UL, auntie nicola, skylar, miss mary), and while i was prepping, true decided the house wasn't decorated enough for a proper bday party.  he only had a few minutes before the arrival of our guests, but he made quick work of ensuring we all knew who's big day it was.

true received everything on his list that he hinted at, or directly asked for, plus a few surprises.  the keeling's sent him a new lego set (a really cool one at that!),  and in no time, the kid had it built:
one of his other absolute fave presents was a sweatshirt, just like the one his little brother has:
he also got a cool magazine subscription to National Geographic (big hit!), a headlamp, sungalsses, rash guard, watch, portable soccer goals, mountain biking gloves, and a book of facts.
by the end of the day he was tired, he fell asleep on the  couch, his new fact book clutched in his hand. we didn't have the heart to move him to his bed, so aaron covered him in a blanket, and we kissed him good night.
