Happy Birthday little man! A few days late, but it wouldn't be true mommy fashion otherwise. We love you so much and we are so grateful you are in our family. Your spunky little personality keeps us giggling (even though you hate being giggled at) and screaming (which you hate even more than the giggling). We love that you have your own mind, and like to do things on your own. We love that you need brave medicine (gummy vitamins) before you go to bed each night to ward off the bad dreams and monsters. Our hearts break when you wake up screaming(4 or 5 times a night) because of the bad dreams and monsters came for a visit. We loved when you told us that candy would be the only thing that would make your owie feel better tonight, even though we had told you earlier that you couldn't have any more candy. But you were right, you did stop crying when we gave you a some jelly bellies-the owie magically got better. We love that you are fascinated by the shows Go, Diego, Go and Dirty Jobs. We love when you say "hey Tootse" to me or your sister. We love that you ALWAYS want to wrestle. We love your stinky feet-well maybe we love your feet, but not the stink. We love you for you and we are so HAPPY you came to our family.Of course there needs to be a picture of my amazing cake making skills :)

Here are the past years:

Missing picture. For some reason I can't fine any of my 2006 pictures. When my computer genius husband has a minute I will make him find them in cyber world.
This cake was an awesome blue truck with jelly bellies in the back and one side of the truck had flat tires because the cake was lopsied and I had to cut the oreos so they would proportionately right. stay tuned for picture.

I saw your comment today about your potential Bay Area trek. Understandably scary, but there are so many cool things about it, I'd love to tell you our experiences. Email me if you want some more info. We lived in Marin county (North of San Francisco) and loved it (and will be moving back in a couple of years.) Good luck!

Carrie your blog is so fun to read and your kids look so much like you I can't believe it! When I look at the pictures of your little girl I can even see that she probably has the same personality that you do. She resembles you so much. I haven't been blogging long, but am loving that I am running across old friends.

Fabulous cakes! I always think I know how to make cakes and I experiment with them and they turn out terrible. Those are so cute. Great post.

Happy (very belated) birthday to your little guy! I can't believe our baby boys are 3 already (or almost 3, in our case). That cake is awesome! I miss driving with you every sat morning, by the way--I feel like I haven't talked to you forever! I hope you and your family are all doing well :-)
