9 years old!!!

On Friday, Andrew celebrated his 9th birthday. Hard to believe he is that old already.

We opened presents in the afternoon, and then got ready for the cub scout family camp-out our troop had that evening (no, Momma didn't camp!) I thought it would be fun to make cup cakes and have all Andrew's friends help us sing "Happy Birthday" to Andrew.
Sophie was my "helper"; it seems like every time I turned around,
she had stolen a beater or spoon and was taking licks!
Most of the 6 dozen cupcakes I made. They were yummy!
When Elliott and I were in England last Spring, we bought all the kids a "sparkler" candle that was shaped in the number of years they would be... it made quite a show!
Andrew, Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you, and so happy to have you in our family!

It is hard to believe that he is 9 years old already. Love the candle. I forgot it was his birthday until the day so a card is on the way. He will just get it late as I mailed it Sat. morning. Know he had a special day.
Love and Hugs
