Yes, that says, "Jarod rocks". He has a healthy self-esteem to go with that creativity.
This is how old I turned.
This is how old Jarod SAID I turned. There's that humor.
Then he dug out aaaaallllll the old birthday candles & said I was THIS old. Funny boy, that one.
But then I got my revenge when I told him he was THIS old.......................
...........................plus 6. We didn't have an eleven.
I had to let him play with fire this once...it being his birthday & all.
That was our little family party, which was actually pretty big, since my sister & her kids are still here. He got legos from me & Justin. Today, we had our "Big Family Birthday Party" with my in-laws. Mom took us out for dinner & Auntie Emily & Auntie Sarah made a real, home-baked, delectable, culinary-genius-of-a-cake. And I forgot to take a picture, naturally. Jarod opened his presents from Grandma, Rara & Emmy. He got EXACTLY what he wanted:
a fedora & a bee-bee gun (which he will only be allowed to shoot with Daddy's help, so he doesn't shoot his eye out)....................
...............................and some totally awesome cooking stuff. He says he is going to shoot a squirrel & he knows just how he plans on seasoning it.
Thought I'd repost the cheese picture. He's even creative with Cheese Whiz.
He has his own brand of humor.
He's a little wacky.
He's a trend setter.
He's wise & witty.
His sense of humor can be a little morbid.
He is a helpful & sweet big brother.
Did I mention his sense of humor?
He's my baby, even though he's almost as tall as me now. I love him & I always will, even though he doesn't like my kisses any more. Happy birthday, Jarod Matthew! Thanks for almost coming on my birthday. I forgive you for the long labor. I love you. You're the best birthday present ever!
~Jarod's arm was not broken badly enough to need a cast. He just has to wear a splint for 3 weeks.
~Toby is recovering nicely from surgery. He has not run away again. So far.
