Jacob's Birthday Party Utah

We celebrated Jacob's birthday last night with the Utah family members. It was a combined party with his cousin Jacie who turns 9-years-old today. The kids were cute all sitting in a row on the stools in front of the t.v.

Jacie got to open her presents first (ladies first, of course). Jacob was surprisingly patient with that. He was just as excited as she was while she opened her gifts.

Jacob finally got his turn at opening gifts. He got so many favorites: Legos, DSi games, Game Stop gift card, cash. He even declared "I'm the luckiest kid ever!" Yes you are.

We (Jacob) decided to forgo the traditional cake and ice cream and instead eat ice cream sandwiches made out of Costco chocolate chunk and oatmeal raisin cookies. Yummy choice Jacob. It was a lot easier to clean up than the cake too. And of course the kids loved it.

Jacob even got a new bike from mom and dad. He literally wore the heck out of his old bike. The seat no longer stays stationary; the chain contraption falls off constantly, and his back wheel, not just the tire, is broken. He was due for a new bike. I think his smile says it all.

I love you Jake. You are such a good boy with a very sweet and tender heart. Thank you for making our family complete.
