It is pretty handy to have a husband that is talented at drawing and building and cooking and, and, and..... you get the idea. His latest creation, after Patrick's spectacular Transformer cake, is Jacob's Pokemon cake.
Our oldest child turned 9 this year, and the poor kid's birthday landed on a holiday. But we celebrated the day before, with a few friends and family - no, wait, we don't have ANY family up here - just us! But it was fun to have some of Jacob's friends over.
Here is Doane, slaving over his latest masterpiece....
And of course he had to add some detail to the sides, so it didn't have boring, plain sides!
Then Jacob opened presents, and had fun getting lots of toys and action figures...
One of Jacob's friends gave him a Nerf gun, which is cool, cuz we like those, but it you look at Patrick's reaction (on the right), it's hilarious!
And here's the gift the Jacob was most excited about - a box of Caprisuns! Hee-hee!
Oh, silly me, there was really a movie inside there - who did that?????? (Naughty parents!)
And the last shot I'll share is Jacob blowing out his candles. Look, you can see the smoke rising from the candles. Pretty cool!
Happy Birthday Jacob! We love you!
