My middle child turned 10 the other day- I can hardly believe it! We had a family birthday dinner for him the other night, with an interesting menu of enchiladas and banana cream pie! Tomorrow we're having a little party for a few friends. We're taking them to see "Race to Witch Mountain." I hope it's as good as the original one, but I doubt it will be!

Here he is with the "Volcano Guy" that I made him, similar to what I did a couple of years ago. I had saved this guy that he made out of construction paper quite a while ago and he had forgotten all about it, so it was a fun surprise. The original paper model is missing the feet and an eye, but you get the picture. I think it turned out to be a pretty good likeness. Someday I'd like to do some embroidery of their drawings like this. In fact, I'd love a whole quilt like that, but it will probably have to wait until someday when I have a little more time. Like when I'm a grandma. I probably won't have much time then either!

He is a great artist and writer with a great imagination. His other favorite presents were Sly Cooper 2 video game, the book "Monsterology," and some discs for playing World of Warcraft. He is definitely a fantasy buff, as most of the boys around here are! Happy Birthday big guy!
