7 for 7

My Eamon turned SEVEN yesterday!  
He's still such a little peanut, but full of spunk and joy to make him seem larger than life.  (You know the type.)
Here are some pictures from his big day:

He woke up this morning and said "It's my birthday! And Johnny Appleseed Day!  And Caitlin's birthday (his cousin)! And Gammy's half birthday!"  

I asked him if he felt older, and he said "Not really, maybe a little bit bigger or something."
How old are you?
His birthday meal requests:

Breakfast: Donuts (I added some yogurt for protein)

Lunch: A nutella and fluff sandwich (we never let them have this combo, and he's been dying to try it! The verdict was that it was "too sweet".  Well, I'll be.)

Dinner: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and broccoli - steamed not roasted.  Same as last year!
This is how he eats it...all mashed up together.  It's actually quite tasty this way!
The extent of my cake decorating skills - Mario characters lined up like a 7.
Don't peek!

A happy boy!!
An unhappy boy!  He wanted to blow out the candles. "I do it!"
Gammy and Grandpa came over to celebrate:

He got lots of great presents from his birthday list:

What little boy asks for a Tervis cup for their birthday?

6) Siblings were very involved in the present opening and play by play:

Who needs to have friends over when every day is an instant party?

7) This is what I live for...the faces!


Happy Birthday Eamon, we love you to the moon and back!


  1. He's adorable. The best part is the faces on all the kids. Such love! Happy Birthday to Eamon.

  2. Happy birthday, Eamon! The cake looks GREAT!

  8. Oh Eamon! 7 years old???!!!! He really is the sweetest, and seems like he's turning into Fr. Cook a little more each day ;)

  9. Blah. They're getting so big. When are we seeing you next? I need to see them before they're big enough to go to college.

  10. Happy birthday to Eamon! John Paul totally asked for one of those cups for his birthday too - maybe it makes them feel like grown-ups?
