Samuel turned 11 today! We celebrated his birthday last night because the kids and Doyle have a big practice tonight. This was his year to have a family party, so it was just us. He wanted cupcakes for his cake, so I put them in the shape of a tree.
He also wanted to light his candles. All of my kids love the idea of lighting candles-not sure why.

His big gift this year was a DSI-something he has been wanting for a long time.
He had a lot of fun figuring out all of the features.
Today I took cupcakes in to his class.
We played a board game together as a family before going to bed last night-we knew this week would be a bit hectic, and felt like it was important to spend some time to celebrate his special day.
