Soren is 8 today! All the kids had a chance to shop for him and were so excited to present their gifts.
The apple pie brigade. Christina really wanted to make him an apple pie for his birthday.
Agnes gave him way too many things to count, all wrapped intricately and taped with pink leopard print duct tape. Some of the items were a rock “Oh, wow, that’s a beautiful rock!” and one of Soren’s own cars “Wow, thanks Agnes! I haven’t seen that in like, a month!” And several elaborate cards with cutouts and drawings.
AND it was a popup!
Soren was quite excited to receive the hat she gave him.
A giant “cereal” bowl. (It’s the same type of bowl as we have for the kids’ cereal, only it’s a serving size. Jireh thought it would be hilarious to give it to him as a cereal bowl that would fit an entire box of cereal.)
All in all it was a great birthday and the apple pie was eaten to the last crumb before I could get a picture of the finished product. Happy birthday, my first son and wonderful helper with a sweet spirit, willing hands and a loving heart.
