Saturday was my baby's 12th birthday. When did he get to be so old? And why do my boys insist on trying to make me look short? OK, so I am kinda short. Still and all....
With no power outage, the cake got baked, the presents (which had previously arrived by the magic of dudes in brown outfits) got wrapped, and then unwrapped. And, of course, candles needed blowing out.
The favorite present was a Nerf axe, which Dan proceeded to vigorously try out on Ryan. It works without any harm. Dan heartily recommends this to boys big and small. Ryan says the jury's still out on it.
This was our first birthday without Thor, so it was strange. Still, it was a good night, and a fine end to a freak snowstorm.
