Today is TM's 9th birthday. We celebrated last night. Of course, as my children tend to do, he chose a birthday dessert which did not lend itself to candles. A. and P. did the honors.
Here is the birthday dessert TM choose. Owl cupcakes. He and A. wanted to make them and had a grand time decorating them yesterday. Aren't they cute? (The eyes are oreo halves.)

Presents came after cake. Here he is opening a gift from A.

More and more people helped with the presents as the evening went on. He loved all his gifts.

So, happy birthday, my son. I love you very much. I can't believe you are 9 years old. We have both come a long, long way from where we began. It has been a wondrous journey.
