About three weeks ago, we celebrated Sam's 8th birthday. We began the day like we always do for birthdays, with a special breakfast and present opening. Julie crocheted Sam a red hat, and Clay made him a knife. He spent the day playing with his new toys, and enjoying his siblings doing his chores for him! We ate his birthday lunch at Abner's, and then he had a few little boys over to play and eat birthday cake.
It was a very cold day, but Sam insisted on the boys playing outside! So I asked all of the Mamas to make sure they brought warm clothes for their sons. I let them play outside 40 minutes, and then I rung the dinner bell for them all to come inside for cake and snacks. I think it was 23 degrees that day!
I think Sam had a super day!

No, it's not Pinterest worthy--but Sam liked it!
