I fell a bit behind on posting the birthdays. Oh, well...it's not like we haven't had much going on around here these past couple of weeks. Really, with five kids now 7-years-old and younger we're never busy. Nope. Never.
We kicked off our 2014 Birthday Line Up a couple weeks ago. Joshua waited for his birthday for approximately 365 days. He was bursting with excitement when he woke up to find some balloons and streamers in his doorway - red, white, and blue at this patriot's request.
For some reason I can only take fuzzy pictures, so bear with me on some of these.
At Joshua's request we had Pad Thai, dumplings (potstickers), and cheesecake for his birthday celebration. The Valentino Family cheesecake tradition shows no signs of fading in our little branch of the family tree. Joshua has been helping to make cheesecake since he could hold a spatula.
This year, with a few directions from Mom, Joshua made the cheesecake himself.
It's hard to believe that 7 years have already gone by since this special guy came into our lives. His many interests and big ideas make every day an exciting adventure!
We love you, Joshua! We are proud of you!
