Happy Birthday Sam, and beyond!

Yesturday was Sam's fourth birthday. I can't believe that my boy is four! The time has flown by so fast, and he is changing everyday. He continues to have no fear of anything, and is a going concern at all times. I'm assuming that the next four years and then some will be full of much energy and excitement as he continues to discover life.

Claire and Daniel finish school tomorrow, and then summer vacation begins for real. It's full of plans for camp and camping, day trips and bonfires, fun and more fun!

My sister lost another wee heart the other night. She and her family have gone through much in the last few months and tomorrow they move to their new house. A time of change and adjustment, sorrow and healing. I am thankful that they are surrounded by so many people who care for them.

What 4 year old likes shrimp, curry, or cesar sallad? Wish he could rub off on Elijah and Joseph! Happy birthday Sam!!! I can't believe he's that old.

Fabulous cake, Alison. I didn't know Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were still around. Brings back memories of my little bro. And those cupcakes; you are a genious! Sam looks adorable and seems the blissful birthday boy!

I'll be praying for Margie.

Happy Birthday Sam! 4 is a great age, at least Mr. Bill thinks so. :)

I'll be in prayer for your sister. I'm sorry. Just the word, "another" in your sentence about her makes her pain that more obvious.

Sam is so adorable. I love his cake. All of my boys would love to have such a craft cake baker around.

Hooray for 4 year old SAM!!
His cake and cupcakes look super yummy, and of course, you made them, I'm sure.
The picture of Sam with the butter on his nose is so precious. He really is a doll.
Hug and kiss him and enjoy that sweet face of his.
He will grow up to be a teenager before you know it.
Teenagers are cute too... they just have more attitude! :)

I'm so sad for your sister.
Her grief must be overwhelming.
