Calvin started off his day with a cinnamon roll, a slice of bacon and a strawberry. His birthday fell on a Sunday.
Fast forward to his birthday dinner: Mexican Shepherd's Pie and a fruit-filled jello salad.
This was such a great card. He loved it. On the inside it said, "...and remember, never trust a dog to watch your birthday cake!"
Gumballs from Cecily.
A neat sucker from Amelia.
King Arthur from Aunt Leslie.
A cookskin cap from Dad and Mom.
His first airsoft BB gun from Mom and Dad.
The funny looking package turns out to be a play (wooden) Kentucky long rifle.
"Happy Birthday to you..."
He walked around and passed them out to everyone.
Cecily and I made his cupcakes together.
Now the taste test.
Naturally, it gets a thumbs up.
When each of the boys has a birthday, Peter reads Proverbs 3 out loud.
A jolly, good celebration. May the Lord bless my boy, this, his eighth year!
