Our boy is now 8 years old!  These kids are just growing up way too fast!!  I was very proud of our girl taking charge of the party this year.  Mommy wasn't feeling the greatest, so she made the cake and decorated it all by herself.  She did a great job and our birthday boy was very happy with the results!  Besides getting some fun toys and treats as presents, he also got alot of books!  He has already read (yes, in 24 hrs) 5 of his books.  This kid LOVES to read!!  Here's a few pics from yesterday.

And our deer friend has been visiting daily....right up to the house.  She doesn't startle too easily.  The kids can stand by the door and watch her as she licks birdseed off the deck.  It still startles me to turn and look out the door and see her staring back at me!!!  Here's a few pics of our friend...


  1. Happy Birthday to my sweet nephew! Hope he has a wonderful day! And what a great job my niece did on his cake. That was really sweet of her to take that on.

  2. By the way, good thing you are feeding that deer. It looks way too skinny! :-)

  3. Happy Birthday to our dear sweet grandson!!! Eight years have gone by so quickly and he's quite the young man now. Glad he's had a great birthday so far. Love the picture of him with his cake!!! Yes, our girl did a great job with making it, for sure!

    Love seeing your new friend, but agree with Jess,it's so skinny!

    Love and hugs to all especially our birthday boy!!!

  4. Happy Birthday to my handsome great nephew. I hope you have a wonderful day Kyle..How nice of your big sister to make your cake for you when Mommy wasn't feeling too well. She is already talented in cake decorating. I am so glad you love to read - that is one of my passions too.
    Love to all the family.
