Happy Birthday to Jed!

Five years old!

He asked for a heart shaped banana cake with blue frosting. I took care of the creation. The kids and Dad decorated it.
We were glad that Papa Steve was there to share the feast with us.

Matching hats for Jed and Zoe!

I created this particularly ugly pillow under Jed's direction.  He picked out the fabric, I tried to learn a new quilting technique. Michael informed me I violated every design rule in the universe. (The next project is turning out much more, uh, polished, promise.)  Jed is THRILLED with it and carries it around half the day so far. At night it is his "mom hug" that he squeezes tight.
Zoe loves birthdays!
Jed's truck he got from Dad.  The night before we went "basement shopping" which involves digging through the bags of toys I've squirreled away from various Take It or Leave Its at church and garage sales the last couple years  .  Seriously, best shopping ever.  We spent a whole 99c on Jed's birthday this year, and it was an excellent birthday if I do say so myself.
