Oren's Birthday

Oren turned 8 this year. Wow! My family came down from Caldwell to celebrate and have some yummy food. We were too busy eating to take pictures of everyone crowded around pans of chicken enchiladas, but take my word that it was good!

I was trying out a new cake recipe: strawberry cake from scratch - even the strawberry puree. Now, before you say "Wow, sounds delicious!" , let me assure you that I've had better. I could have done a cake mix and used the rest of the hour to do something else. At least ice cream will make any cake taste okay and the frosting was out of a can and hard to mess up. :-)

I took pictures of Oren and his cake, but realized while editing that he'd wet his pants and it was very visible, so opted not to post those. Plus, this one was funnier with Samuel sticking his head in.

What is Aunt Janelle looking some smugly happy about? With that little chuckle?

Probably the fact that she gave Daniel a cupcake... That boy knew just what to do with it too! And he made her share her ice cream too. Guess who's laughing now! She was sweet and cleaned him up afterward though.

Oren got his own set of scriptures and some Pixos from Mom and Dad, Samuel gave him his old rollerblades, and Grandma and Grandpa brought a jar of homegrown/homemade jalapeno jelly. That's Oren's favorite!

I think it's so funny that Oren loves that jelly! Happy birthday to him, he's getting to be so big! I remember way back when you guys were about to move to England, and we took those pictures of the two of us fighting over a little baby Oren. Sigh, they grow up so fast.
