Birthday Boy

Cameron is now EIGHT!! I don't know where the years have gone!!
We spent the day watching General Conference with my parents. We hauled the cake and his presents over to their house to open after the first session. I warned Cam that this year his presents would be super boring, but he didn't care....they were wrapped in SpongeBob wrapping paper! :P
We gave him two new church shirts with ties, a new set of scriptures with his name on them, and a scripture bag. (See, we're SO boring!) But grandma....well, grandma SPOILS my boys! She bought him new shoes and a watch the night before and then gave him TWO new remote controlled race cars! He was in HOG heaven! He kept begging to go outside to race the cars. And we let him!
That morning I woke up and grabbed the cake. (The cake that I spent a half hour decorating the night before....) and noticed two little finger prints IN the frosting!! UGH! But after showing my mom, dad AND brother, they all said that it reminded them of a girl LONG ago! I deny ANY resemblance!! I dug out the middle of the pies, NOT cakes!! :P
Now our next hurdle will be his baptism this week. The boy has been inviting every person he knows or even sees to come see it. I'm so proud of my little missionary! :)

Happy Birthday Cameron! Best of luck with all the baptism details. I'm hoping to make it there. And we give those exact same things for 8th b-days at our house.

Happy Birthday Cameron. I'll have to show you the pics of my older two kids' bday cakes where their little brother smeared all the frosting.

Happy Birthday Cam! I find it SO crazy that you have a kid that old! I suppose I am the one who is behind...but I just don't feel that old!

I bet Cam is SUPER excited about his baptism! Enjoy!
