"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Birthday Boy

Last week, Inigo turned 7 years old!!

The day was highly anticipated and couldn't arrive here fast enough. Every day the previous week, he asked me in his best 'canIhaveitplease' voice, "Mom, can't my birthday be on Tuesday instead of Wednesday?" And when that request was denied it turned into a more insistent, "MOM!! I WANT MY BIRTHDAY ON TUESDAY!!!"

"Why do you want it a day early?"

"Because then I won't have to wait any longer!"

Unfortunately for him, I won the battle and we celebrated his birthday on the day he was born, August 12.

(He wasn't just trying to get us to celebrate a day early. He thought we could change the actual date of his birth. Silly boy.)

We took the easy route for this year's birthday: we rented a party room at a brand new business in town that has glow-in-the-dark miniature golf, laser tag, and an arcade. We bought some pizza and some soda and with 5 friends in tow, had a rip-roarin' good time!

Inigo has been on a Peter Pan kick lately, insisting that everyone call him "Peter." He chose to have a Peter Pan birthday cake and this was the best I could come up with. I've never used fondant before. If you don't look too closely, the cake is okay. But that's only if you don't look at it too closely. (I had to photoshop his real name off the cake.)

Happy Birthday, little boy!!

We're glad you are in our family!!

Indigo makes me chuckle.

Can I just say the picture with the kids with all the guns--you must put a caption about young trained mercenaries ; )

Hope he had a wonderful birthday.
