spiderman figure, basketball...but this particular boy, named Henry Carlton Fisher, wanted....a suit!!!! Henry's birthday was last month and for about a month leading up to his birthday he kept telling us that he just wanted a suit. The first couple of times he told me, I didn't know if he was serious, but as his birthday approached, he still wanted a suit. So on his birthday, Jake and I took him to the mall to go find one. We started at Sears. Sears had really good prices, but didn't sell the 2 pieces of the suit separate. So in the 7/8 set...the coat fit, but the pants were huge...and vice versa! Henry has long legs, but is as skinny as a board. We looked at J.C. Penny's and they sold the coats separate, but the price for just the coat was ridiculous. So the suit shopping has been on hold for a bit. Finally, Jake took Henry to Target last night and he got his suit. He was between sizes in the coat, so they opted for the larger size, knowing he still has a lot of growing to do. As I was laying by him last night he kept saying..."I wish it was Sunday tomorrow! I want to wear my suit SO bad!". Well, today is not Sunday, it's Saturday, but a girl in Henry's primary class is getting baptized, so he got to put his suit on. He looks very handsome! The coat is a bit big, but he's growing like crazy these days. I'm sure he will go to put it on in the near future and we will realize it's too small!
