Jacob Is Eight!!

At dinner on Jacob's birthday, Jacob opened presents from Grandma.

You could tell he was SO excited about each gift (even the inside of his new rain boots!)

But this gift beat all the others.

He is, after all, a Lego Man.
He told me today that he's decided he doesn't really want to be an app designer when he grows up, instead he's going to design lego sets. Or maybe design lego sets and design apps. The future is bright.

THANK YOU, Grandma! 

And then came our traditional birthday pancakes. Jacob's were, of course, surrounded by bacon.

The next day after doing a little school, Granna came. Jacob opened gifts from her right after lunch.

Yay! A new soccer ball! (Whew! I didn't know it, but we didn't have one to use for the party--thank goodness for Granna!)

And a soccer goal! (and some clothes)
THANK YOU, Granna!

Thank you, Stacie, for designing and creating Jacob's cake. It was great!

Definitely a more muted table design for the boy, but I think he loved it all the same:
chocolate drop cookies (at Jacob's request)
are pretty much all you need for a boy party, right?!

Thank you to all Jacob's buddies who brought books and small toys for him to take to Uganda.

Happy Birthday, Buddy!
