Sam’s a lucky little guy. He gets two birthday parties this year! Our church small group meets at our place every Wednesday night, so we had a little celebration with them last night. He’ll have another celebration with friends on Saturday.
The theme for last night’s dinner was favorite kid foods. We had mac & cheese, pigs in a blanket, mini corn dogs, dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets, tator tots, star-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and ants on a log. We haven’t had any of these things in years, and let me tell you, it doesn’t feel good to eat them all at once!
Sam got his first taste of birthday cake. He liked it when we all sang to him, but started crying as soon as we put his cupcake in front of him. After a little coaxing from his dad, he started crumbling the cupcake into little bits. I’m not sure how much of the cake ended up in his belly, but that’s not a bad thing at all.
