It is amazing to me that 8 years can fly so quickly! AMAZING! He is such a wonderful little boy, and he is turning into an even better little man! I made him his cake (inspired by this cake on Pinterest below). I made it red and blue layers (4) and then frosted it, colored some of the frosting blue, and some red put it in a small ziplock bag and piped on the red in a spiral, took a needle, and drew the lines to make the web look. Then I doodled a spider in the blue and wrote out the letters! I loved the final product!
I also made him 3 hacky sacks, or juggling balls. Pattern found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hacky-sack-2
Hayden loved them!
Here is Hayden playing with the Owl rattle I made him for his birthday last week. I never got a shot of him with it
Here is Sam practicing with the sacks
Oma and Poppy got him a slip and slide! He and Eben can't wait!
My gorgeous sister helping him read his cards
We got him some devil sticks on amazon (specially made for kids 6-9) they are lighter and more manageable.
The yearly photoshoot! He gets cuter / more handsome every year!
