~*Sunshine's Birthday*~

Sunshine is all boy in one respect; he loves anything with a motor.  The rustier and junkier the better!  Also, he loves dirt.  So, when asking him what he wanted for his birthday cake I was not at all surprised to hear "dirt cake" complete with gummy worms but Mom forgot to get those...still tasted quite good!
When we do birthday's around here we serve the birthday person's requested meal to them on their birthday with just us and we usually have just family over for cake and presents whenever is convenient for all of us.  

I thought a cookie tray would spread the dirt cake a bit farther, as well.

Raisin cookies 
(ch. chip dough minus the chips for the food allergy kiddo)
Chocolate Chip Raisin Oatmeal Cookies
Pumpkin Cookies
Cut Out Cookies (Transportation shapes)

Dad thought he'd be funny and duct tape his gift! 

Took some work to get it opened....

Think he likes it?

CHEESE!

Party Pooper!

Yup, I think he likes it!

Capt. America...SUH-WEET!
Cheese!

Lots of cheese!

Sweet JJ!
Lighting the dirt cake...

I think it was a great b-day for him!

And the littles did great with all the new things happening!

~*A Letter to my Son*~ 

Dear Sunshine,

Everyday you face many challenges.  We talk openly with you about your struggles as we aid you in overcoming them.  There are days we rejoice and days we are sad.  I think that is the dance of life...we go back and forth.  

The days of struggle are less often and less intense, for this we rejoice!  We are very proud of you, Sunshine!  

You have come so far from being a scared and skinny little 4 yr old.  Now, your just a skinny 8 yr old!  
(~wink~)  
Seriously, though, eat something will ya!

We love you very much, Sunshine!  

Love always,
Mom and Dad
