Happy 10th Birthday Andrew!

Just before we left the land of snow to return to the land of overcast skies, we celebrated our Andrew's 10th birthday. We had some people over, ate some wonderful hamburgers and hotdogs (at Andrew's request) and cut into a huge chocolate cake.

Andrew is a quiet fellow. He has a tender, appreciative heart. He is often hard to shop for, because he doesn't naturally think about things that he wants. He is a thinker, and has started some great conversations with questions such as "What exactly is fire?" He's an amazing reader, typically preferring classics such as Tom Sawyer and Robin Hood (although he did just read the first Artemis Fowl book, so there's some current stuff in there too). He makes us laugh with some of his mispronunciations (devel-OP-ment).

We love you Andrew!


  1. Sounds very much like my almost-10yo (in a couple of weeks).

    So, what *is* fire, exactly?

  2. Yes, Happy Birthday Andrew. Such a great age - still thinks you're pretty cool and smart.
