Happy Birthday, Jack!

Our grandson, Jack, turned 7 on Monday, and his parents had a party for him
with his classmates from school. It was a wonderful time, especially since they live
near us now and we both were able to celebrate his birthday with him.
His cake was decorated with a soccer ball. Jack is on the left in the white t-shirt.

The house rang with the gleeful sounds of 8 boys and 3 girls running amok through the house,
along with little Eli and Maya doing their best to keep up.  My photography is even worse than usual, because these little guys move fast!

One thing he wanted for his birthday was a Build-a-Bear, so on Saturday, Lauren and I
took him to the mall and he picked out a bear. Of course, I had a camera in my purse,
 but I forgot all about it as I got all caught up in the fun of Jack choosing a bear!

Jack and his new friend,  Jake - I think it is so great that this seven-year-old boy
loves his bear as much as Star Wars and Legos!

Jake came home with a Star Wars outfit and a skateboard - he is a very multi-faceted bear!

Happy Birthday to you, Jack!

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living
my grandson you
you'll be!
(sung to On Top of Old Smokey)

Happy Birthday, to your little cutie!

And he named his Bear, the name of one of our Grands. :-)
