An 8 Year Old

Somehow life keeps going.
This guy, our oldest, is 8 already!

Thank you, son, for the privilege of being your Mama. 
It sure is a gift.
In so many ways.

Pictured here are two little parties he had...one with us on his special day,
and the other with family.

Light the candles on his own cake? Of course. Wouldn't have it any other way.

He also made his own cake, at his request. It was a camo-colored concoction with hunter orange frosting. A chemical nightmare, to be sure.

A metal detector!

This is a silly picture the kids wanted me to take. Shawn's been working on the house (as always), and they found this door, that he trashed, outside. They played with it for a morning, even setting it up in the actual doorway and demanding their picture taken. Their uber-happy smiles make me laugh!

Quite excited about a new rocket kit and engines. :)

Money money money!!!

Another item he's been anxious for: a magnifying glass

And "yes, I'm going to light this cake too."

His friend David came to play for two days and sleep over! Very exciting indeed.

Most of their time was spent outside, in the garage, in the barn, in the fort, and in the trees. :)


  1. Such fun times! I had to make a camo cake for my son - it wasn't pretty, but it made him happy. Totally worth it.

  2. It looks like a perfect birthday celebration!!
