Happy 7th Birthday Adam

We had the most civilized birthday party ever, even though the kids had to stay inside due to torrential downpours and wind. We had only 6 kids, instead of 21 last year. I even got off pretty easy with the cake. One mom said, "Wow, you've got the official Star Wars font down!" Here's my secret: I printed out the Star Wars logo, carefully cut out the letters with an exact-o knife, and then used it as a stencil on top of the cake. When the letters were semi-dry, I used a toothpick to make the final adjustments. Adam did the honors of putting the Lego Star Wars figures on top. When I asked him why so many were lying down, he said they were dead. Of course, 100% boy.

Happy birthday Adam! You certainly are getting big. I'm not sure how I would fare at a game of WII baseball or WII boxing against you these days! :-)

That is an awesome cake! And I understand about the "boyness", I have two of them myself.

Your blog is fun! And have a good trip!
