Adam Turned Five

Among other festivities, there was some business with cupcakes.

There were some cousins over to play, and some target practice.

Adam's aim improved later, after he learned that you have to scrunch up your face.

There was a birthday dinner, with Adam's requested menu: artichokes, roasted vegetables (brussels sprouts, carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms), and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. And chocolate milk.

He wanted to say the blessing on the food. He said, "Thank you for this day, and thank you for this food, and please bless that it will be good for us -- well, actually, I know that the mac and cheese isn't good for us, but please bless that at least the other things will be good for us . . ."

Oh, how I love this kid.

My kids love artichokes, but I'm very impressed if your kids will eat mushrooms. Mine won't touch 'em.

Henry's prayer today included "And we only say potty words in the bathroom," and my other kids were scandalized, but Dean and I thought it was a good prayer.

I keep coming back to look at these faces, and stuff.

MegaTron's prayer made me laugh too.
