James recently turned 7! This kid made me a mom, and I’m grateful for that every single day. Even when he’s driving me totally nuts with all his talk of video games. He’s always been a bright example to everyone around him. He came into the world with a rough start but has overcome every obstacle set before him with determination. I’m pretty biased, but I think he’s awesome.

We decided to have a quiet little family party at home this year. The birthday boy requested a Star Wars theme. Each year my kids get a big bunch of balloons. When I was a kid helium balloons just didn’t happen for birthdays, so I guess I’m living vicariously through my kids in this tradition. 


I spent most of the day working on this BB8 cake. I am pleased with how it turned out. It could have been better, but it could have been worse, too. 


For his birthday James got a mini drone that was peddled onto us by a very aggressive mall salesman, and a bunch of real, regular, non-duplo legos. 


Overall I think he had a great day. Happy Birthday to my James! You are so very loved.
