Happy Birthday, Jack!

My baby boy turned 3 today. We had a "party" for him this afternoon after church. He wanted a bug cake so we made it last night. I can't believe how much he is grown in the past year. Just 7 months ago, we thought he would never learn to talk. He's talking! With complete sentences! He is no longer a baby. He is a "big boy". Occasions like these make me happy and sad. Another year older means another year closer to having no preschoolers and just lots of independent children.

Jack helped make this dirt cake with gummy worms and fruit snack bugs. It looks a lot better in person. I know my cakes are not perfect but my kids think they are great. That's what matters! Jack loved putting all the dirt (crushed Oreos) and bugs on .


Tearing open all the presents was the best part. It was chaotic and wild because the two older ones wouldn't leave Jack alone.

From Aunt Marian, Uncle Bubby, and Tess, Jack got a speed boat. The immediately put it in the pool and it worked. They loved it.

Uncle Chris even showed up for the fun.

This "Little Engine That Could" game came all the way from Grandma Sickels and Papa Doc in Iowa.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Baby Boy Jack!
