Happy 8 Years Wils!
Today Wilson is 8 years old and in true Wilson form this whole day is full of happiness, laughing, surprises, positivity, and so much love.
We're about to dive into some dairy free ice cream sundaes as requested by the birthday man. While we get sugar high, here is the official "Wilson's 8 year birthday interview"...

Dear Wilson, when God made you He wrapped extra helpings of joy and kindness into every fiber of your being. You are walking light and love, a testimony of the Savior you live for and want to share with everyone you meet. You are quick to share, give your all, your most, and your best. You love a good joke and slapstick humor. You are an endless pit and constantly raid the fridge and pantry. You love telling stories and concept ideas for new shows. You love mashing music scores from movie soundtracks to create new tracks. You have a stubborn streak but you're learning to use it for good. You love math and target practice, bear hugs and swinging. We see a million ways God is growing you into an incredible man. We are blessed to be your parents and honored to call you our son. I'm so grateful God chose me to be your mom. We love you dearly.
Happy Birthday Wilson!
