|Another amazing, and super simple, cake idea from Family Fun magazine.|
We had no real theme, just fun lollipop colors to play with.
Emma, and the other kids, are having fun finding new things to make with the cricut.
And chocolate covered marshmallows are now an official birthday party table centerpiece... because they taste so good, too. I love these striped paper straws we discovered on Amazon last year. We have done so many fun things with them and they come in lots of bright colors.
My replacement camera came on that day, so we had some fun trying it out with the birthday boy. I really can't say enough... I love the quality of the photos it takes. Aedan loves this pink shirt. Can you guess which of the kids gave it to him?
He also loves pretending to be an opera singer
And he loves that the cherry tree blooms on his birthday
And pretending to be an angel. Well, okay... he doesn't actually have to pretend too hard at that one because he really is such a great kid.
Can you tell he was longing to have Hershey's Chocolate cake?
And, since it was his birthday and all, he got to rock Winnie and read her bedtime stories while the rest of us did his job of cleaning up the dinner dishes.
Aedan is such a wonderful blessing to our family. He brings wit and wisdom far beyond his years. He is so responsible and loving to all those around him. He is constantly looking for ways to share the Gospel and minister to others. He loves his plants, his chickens, and his fish. He also loves to garden, swim, read, sing, art, snuggling, and any outdoor activity. He has a level of respect for his authority that astounds me and his deep desire to always seek out and do the will of God is an example to all of us.
I had a list of blessings from the family but have managed to misplace it this week. But let it suffice to say, this family would be less if we did not have the blessing of Aedan Joel.
Happy birthday, dear son.
