My mom baked the kids a cake, which they all got to frost, write their names and sprinkle with abandon.
This year it's 3, 5 and 7 on the cake. Too much growing up, I tell you. Far too much growing up. See Annabel's great effort with her name? Cake writing is difficult stuff, but she nailed it. Nailed it!
Sammy insisted Grandpa Red help him open all his gifts. And trying to get everything free of the the zip ties and wire twists was no problem at all because Grandpa Red always carries his Swiss Army knife. You should have seen Sammy's face when he saw the knife! Wow!
And the grand finale gift that Sammy found hidden in Grandma's closet: "Look at this, Grandma!!! Come see this!!!" Sneaky little guy found it before the full 18 hour battery charge. But after it charged and he was riding it the next morning, it was the best possible present Sammy.
