Happy Birthday Fritter!

Yesterday my oldest child turned 9.  My Fritter, who was seven months old when I started this blog is nine years old.  I can hardly believe it!  I've learned so much over the years and much of it is because I have been given the wonderful opportunity to raise this big boy of mine.  Watching him grow and develop has been one of the biggest blessings of my life.
Fritter is a big Star Wars fan and requested a cake of the same theme.  I've realized I'm not the best at cake decorating drawing with frosting, so I punted and cut out the images I could find to put on the cake.  Some silver sprinkles worked as stars and gummy characters added a little more...something.  He had also asked if I could somehow make the cake cutting knife into a light saber, but I wasn't feeling that talented.  Before dinner, a good friend watched my two younger children and Dan, Fritter, Ladybug, and I went to see the Peanuts movie at the theater.  So much fun!

So here's to Fritter, my snake and bug catching boy:

The best big brother in the world:

A Jedi in training:

Always ready for new opportunities to explore:

With a smile that lights up the room:

And the most creative person I know:

Happy birthday Fritter!  I hope your year is filled with many graces and blessings!
