Calvin Turns 9

A birthday breakfast complete with his own plate that he made.
Calvin typically asks for spaghetti and meatballs for his birthday dinners.  It's kind of fun to pile it all in a bowl to serve it.  Ben and Cal even sang "On Top of Spaghetti" with their Papa in mind.
It was difficult, but we came up with a set of fiction books that Cal's older brothers had never read before, The Sugar Creek Gang series.  My parents got them for him.
William wanted to buy an erector set for Calvin.  This is a metal put-together-yourself set of a motorcycle that William picked out and paid for.  That meant a lot to Cal.
Aunt Leslie got him a bike helmet that he was needing so he's ready for spring and will be able to ride the bike he got for Christmas when the weather is nice enough.
Grandma Bethel, the kids always look forward to your cards that you are so faithful to send.  We always enjoy the messages you write and they like to see what the picture on the front will be. 
Calvin's gift from Mom and Dad was a new fishing rod and reel.
Chocolate cake with chocolate icing, complete with Star Wars figurines.  :)
We had a great celebration and Calvin was blessed by the loving gifts and cards sent from family that is far away and family that is right here.
