This boy brings so much joy to our lives and I am so thankful that he was born into our family. He's loving, kind, crazy, smart, affectionate, and tons of fun. Having a son is such a blessing and I don't take it lightly that we are raising a man and a future husband and father (Hopefully...he still says he's never getting married and never leaving home. He'll live with us til we die and then he'll move in with his sister. Love the plans of a 10 year old!). I love watching him grow and mature. He loves his family and he loves Jesus and I really couldn't ask for more.
Here are some photos of his birthday fun! Scroll to the end to read his annual birthday survey. So glad I started those!
My boy with some of his buddies.
His birthday was during the height of the Pokemon Go craze. I love how his Pikachu cake turned out! It was the tallest cake I've ever made. My girl helped out with making the head and tail.
His actual birthday was fun too with donuts for breakfast, a gift in the mail from Grandma and cheese curds for dinner!
