Good news! Our computer is doing much better. Turns out we had a faulty, recalled video card which was screwing everything up, but Apple replaced it for free. Praise Apple! We still have a dorky camera situation going on, but I was able to go through the photos we have taken recently and realized I have some serious catching up to do. Let’s start off with Spencer’s birthday back in March!
Spencer is four!
My aunt Amanda is a cake maker/decorator extraordinaire. We have monthly dinners at my Grandma’s house and March’s dinner fell on Spencer’s birthday so my Grandma thought it would be fun if Amanda used her skills to make Spencer a cake. I thought it would be fun not to have to make Spencer a cake this year so I was all for the idea.
We should know by now not to be shocked at the impressiveness of Amanda’s skill, but neither Spencer nor I were prepared for the cake that Amanda created. Behold:
Spencer loved it. He spent several minutes looking over ever detail of the cake, using his finger to drive the road, deciding which candy bar car he wanted to eat, and smiling over every detail. Or maybe I should say half-smiling:
Trust me. That’s one excited little boy right there.
Everyone crowded around Grandpa to help light the candles:
And then Grandpa had to cover some excited mouths to make sure Spencer had a chance to blow out the candles himself:
Happy birthday little buddy! We love you!
