Happy Birthday G

Today my son turns 8.  ~gasp~

Where did the time go?

I'm sure some of it has been spent at guitar lessons, hockey practice, swim team, preschool, grade school, and other activities.

I'm positive some of it has been spent cleaning up bloody noses, scraped knees, ER visits, middle of the night croup, and at the ENT (who's children will be attending an Ivy League school with no debt, thanks to my repeated contributions to their college funds).

I'm certain that some of it has been spent eating... boys. eat. a lot.

Most of all, I'm absolute on the fact that the time has been well spent raising him into the sweet 8 year old that he is...  G, you're coming into your own.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the 3rd grade!

Speaking of Hockey, it's a tradition for me to make some outrageous cake for G's birthday.  There have been a Tomas The Tank Engine 3D train w/ 3 cars and a caboose, a Blues Clues "Blue", a DEATH Star & Tie Fighter Cupcakes, and now, a Boston Bruins Hockey Puck....

not going to lie.  Boston Bruins Hockey Puck is the EASIEST ONE that's ever been requested...
