Happy Birthday Willbon!!

Happy Birthday Willbon! I can't believe you're already 4 years old. For awhile you insisted that you were turning 5, but when the day finally arrived you were very happy to be 4. You told everyone it was your birthday, and you proudly held up 4 fingers when they asked you how old you were.

Will initially wanted a Lightning McQueen cake, but he insisted that it be a 3-D version of the famous race car -- way beyond my novice cake-making skills!! So I strategically convinced him that a Spiderman cake would be very cool, and he agreed. He saw a spiderman cartoon a few weeks ago, and he has been very into everything spiderman lately!
He invited his best friend Colby over for his party, and it worked out very nicely because Colby's sister just happens to be Jessica's best friend, and Colby's Mom just happens to be one of my best friends. So it was a party for everyone!
Will got some race cars, a leapster, a dart gun, a toy rifle set, and a spiderman costume. All the toys were a big hit, but I will admit that the guns are loud, and the darts are stuck all over my ceiling!! Oh well, it's all part of the fun.
Happy Birthday Will!

Wow! That sounds like the best birthday ever for a 4 year old. It must have been wonderful to have his best friend there as well as family. How quickly they grow up. He has just started to open up to a whole new world of learning and experiences in life. What a special little boy. We love him so. He is so much like his father. Love GC
