Another Unusual Birthday Party

This past Labor Day we held our annual birthday party for Sam at the cemetery. Like every year, it seems crazy to be inviting people to come to the cemetery to eat cake, sing happy birthday and release balloons. Like every year, it is always a very blessed hour for me and my family.

This year we had cookie cake. That sounded good to the kids when we went to pick out a cake. Rehm originally suggested Krispy Kreme donuts. I'm not sure why donuts didn't win. But somehow we got everyone to agree to cookie cake.

The children decided that Sam would like Star Wars now, so we bought action figures to decorate his stone. We also picked up a Aggie gnome as the family is sure that Sam would be an Aggie fan. Rehm mentioned something about the "garden ganoma" at some point during the week. It took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about but ever since that is how I've been referring to the gnome as well. For some reason it just cracks me up every time.

As always, I left Sam's party feeling very loved by my family and friends and as always glad that I was chosen to be Sam's Mom.

Took me a minute to figure out who Charlie was...he has gotten really big.
