Sammy turns 9!

My sweet Sam turned nine, and I am am wondering where all the time has gone.  He is so inquisitive and fascinated by space - hence, the cake.

His big brother decided to surprise him by giving him his old Ipod Touch that Lincoln had bought with his own money the year before.  Linc wrapped it himself in the corn dog box, and Sammy was thrilled to pieces to receive it!

His favorite gift, however, were the Celestron telescope lenses that he asked for.  These fit his large telescope.  He had been asking for these for a long time, and he didn't want anything else for his birthday.  Just the lenses. 

He loved his cake, and he loved having a special surprise visit from his cousin, James, too!
Spaghetti and meatballs were the order of the day. 
And the next night he got his award and moved up in Scouts.  All in all a pretty great week for one amazing kid. 

We love you Sammy!
