Moses is 5

Yesterday we celebrated 5 years with Moses.

The day began at 5:00 with presents. This look is either pleasure or surprise that his parents would get him such a cool present as Spiderman socks.

Moses' brothers helped him with his presents.

At 10:00 we took a cake to school for Moses. Since the cakes were made at the last minute and were still on the warm side, the icing melted off a corner. Everyone seemed pretty pleased with the explanation that a bad guy was trying to melt Spiderman's web.

Moses was not displeased to be the centre of attention.

Each of his parents wanted a picture with the birthday boy.

Since the school cake had been eaten down to the last crumb, we had to make another cake for the evening so Isaac could have some. Since we have no oven (and haven't for a long time) and had already borrowed our friend's (thanks Viwe), we made raw brownies for the evening. By this point all boys were on the verge of hysterically tired and we could barely get them in bed fast enough.

We are very proud of our articulate, inquisitive, and zealous 5-year old and look forward to seeing his development in the coming year.



  1. Wow! Five years old! Happy Birthday Moses!!

  2. Moses does look like a big boy! We are taking our big boy to Grandma and Grandpa's this weekend for Uncle Carl's Camp. He will stay with them for several days by himself.

  3. Wow. It's that time of year already. Winter is just kicking up here.

  4. "articulate, inquisitive, and zealous" are all great words to apply to Moses, though I remember the first two more than the third.
