Birthday Week

If I was tech savvy enough to do it, I would spare you the long post and put up a cool collage from Adam's birthday celebration, but since things like that require brain power, you're out of luck today.

Since his birthday was on a Saturday, it got stretched out to be an all weekend celebration--including Sunday morning crepes ( a birthday tradition in our house)....


with Daddy's special scrambled eggs...


and everyone's favorite of all...Nutella and whipping cream! 


Later on Cami made these beautiful (and scrumptious) Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes....


8 candles + 1 cupcake = easy, peasy to blow out


On Monday we buckled in our little confectionery delights....



that were cute as can be...



and shared them with Adam's very cute and very diverse 2nd grade class....

Adam was so thrilled with it all that he gave me his best unimpressed non-teeth bearing grin...
I think he thought he was being a bit rebellious by not giving me a full-blown smile for the camera, but little did he know that he totally melted my heart with those sparkly brown eyes and long lashes.  :)

Now I just need to figure out how I got to have 4 of my 5 kids over the age of eight.  I'm definitely too young for that kind of distinction.

What a cutie! Happy Birthday to Adam.

I'm loving the wall paper in the first picture.

Happy birthday to Adam! I'm so jealous that you guys are allowed to bring homemade treats into school. Everything here has to be storebought...Boo!

I should not have read this post just now! I am starving! Those cupcakes and crepes look so delicious!

Looks like Adam had a great birthday!

Those crepes and cupcakes look delicious! If you wouldn't mind sending some to me, that would be lovely :)
Happy birthday Adam dear! I really like that last picture of him! And the first picture where he's trying not to smile! He's so cute!

Happy happy birthday Adam!! Be sure and save me some of those lovely crepes when I come visit you this weekend!! They look so yummy and I have not had a good meal in months... ;o(

Poor grandpa!!

And as for having four of five kids over age eight...it happens the same way that half our eight children are over the age of 30!

How can that be?

Love, Grandpa
