Big Dave's Party!

Last night we finally got to celebrate David's birthday with friends.  The weather was questionable and the first thirty minutes of the party the thunder rumbled:(  It all worked out in the end and the kids finally got to swim and party. 

David with Tommy, Will, Alex, and Owen.  Check out David's shirt that says "Keep calm, it's only an extra chromosome."  I found it on etsy and I had to get it for him. 
Caroline and David!
David and some of his lady friends-Grace, Elena, Addyson, and Kennedy. 
Tonya and Baby Sage!
Kelsey and David
Hope and Macy
David and Mason after the thunder delay was finally over!  Such happy kids to hear that whistle blow!  While we waited we enjoyed pizza, chips, brownies, watermelon, and M&MS!
Hope and Sydney
Hope giving GG a wet hug!
Caleb, Devin, and David
The vanilla heat cake by Kelly Marchant!
The chocolate basketball cake also by Kelly. 
I will never tire of watching this guy blow out his birthday candles.  There were so many times at UVA that we wondered if he would make it through chemo and to see him blow out a big number nine birthday candle is awesome. 
Kyle and Hope.  She even insisted to have a bow in her hair while swimming. 
David truly had a ball at his party.  Here he is with Jonathan playing chicken which was probably his favorite part of the party.  I am not sure how Jonathan preached this morning at church because he had to be sore and tired from a lot of kids on his shoulders for chicken games. 
Present time!
While waiting for church time, this was the scene I found in our driveway.  David got a new ball and whistle from the Pughs and here he was playing referee with Kyle. 

Last night I was stressed about the weather but after the thunder went away I was so thankful.  Thankful that David is still with us after what he has endured, thankful for amazing friends who came to help us celebrate, and thankful to God for choosing us to parent this Lebron-loving, Jesus-singing, brownie-eating, guitar-playing, stubborn angel boy.  We wish you many many more years of love and good health:) We love you D-Rob!
