When Jared finally got home from a long day at school (where no one knew it was his birthday, by the way), we had birthday pie-- it's common on the Laney side to request a pie instead of a cake. Cherry streusel pie.Neither of us can believe how old he is.
Isaac helped sing "Happy Birthday"...
...then promptly buried the candles in the pie while we were getting plates, ice cream and utensils. Here lies a thirty-one.Jared looks like he's practicing some newly-acquired NP skills.
And now for something completely different:
We got this beautiful quilt in Jared's birthday package from Mama Laney in CA. It goes with a Noah's Friends pillow/book she made for Noah around Christmastime. Check out the corner animals-- they have moving tails! It has all different textures and pieces...we love it and I can't stop raving about it.
