Snaky Sam Turns Six!

Sam had a nice low-key birthday. It fell on a Sunday, a day in which we usually do exactly two things: go to church and spend the rest of the day together at home. So it was a nice change of pace from the day before that we'd spent at Adventureland.

Sam really likes gifts. When I read the book The Five Love Languages of Children a couple of years ago I immediately recognized Sam's love language as being gifts. The profile fit him perfectly. He loves getting gifts, shopping, collecting things, and having possessions. He's a lot like me in this regard. :-)

He got to open one present in the morning.
Surprise, surprise, it was a snake!

For dinner Sam chose some of his favorites--spaghetti snakes, rolls, and peas.

He liked his snake cake (of course).
I ordered it at a bakery. In retrospect, I wish I'd just made him one myself, but I was using the bakery for another cake that same week, so I decided to simplify.

I did do the writing though, as you can probably tell. LOL.

Almost all of Sam's presents were snake-related. Shocking, I know.

Cake and candles...

The candles were persistent and it took some big huffs and puffs to get them all blown out!


It was a fun birthday weekend for a very fun and special boy.
We can't imagine our family and our lives without Sam in them! I thank God every day for him.
