Yesterday, Sam turned 9!!!! Which is really a bit scary, since it means that next year he will be TEN!! Anyway, we had a fun day (took the whole day off school :)) and he got to play more Angry Birds than usual on the iPod and watched more Andy Griffith than usual, too. This is a Big Deal. :) We had a fun little family party for him at night, with my parents and Grampa. Here are just a few pics from the many I took!
Opening a can of noise putty from Julia
Snap Circuits! Something he's been wanting for a while . . . Amazon finally put them on a good sale. :)
He requested a Batman-themed cake. Jim and I got up early and decorated it in our own simple version of the Batcave. :) The main attraction was the Hot Wheels original Batmobile that we put on it. As you can see by his face, the cake was a hit. :)
This one turned out a bit blurry, but you can see the inside of the Batcave a little better.
