Alden is NINE!

Can you imagine celebrating your birthday, at age 9, for the FIRST time in your life?! I'm sure you can imagine it was fun.

Zion had a bit of a hard time giving up HER birthday celebration of two days ago. She really wanted her birthday to continue.

Alden was happy to open presents from family, then share a few hours in the afternoon with two friends, one from his class at school and another friend who is home schooled. They jumped on the trampoline, played in his room and then Alden blew out candles (for the first time) on his Chocolate Torte Royale, which is a Mehltretter family tradition for birthdays.

Here's the recipe if you want to try it: recipe

Okay, it seems blogging has made it to the top of your "to do" list and I'm glad for it! I feel like I am celebrating right along with y'all. Happy birthday, Alden! I love his hair... very cool.

See you all soon (pretty please)
