Happy Birthday Jacob

We had a swashbuckling good time Sat. at Jacob's pirate party! The party started at 1:00, we had pizza and then off to a really "ambitious" treasure hunt. There were 9 boys, both grandmas, and Chris and Maryann with baby Sarah. Steve is so awesome! He made 8 clues and at each spot they had to perform a task. We did it at the college. The boys golfed, kicked goals,walked the plank, and did dope on a rope all leading to the treasure he buried in a huge dirt mound at the college. It was a pinata. They had so much fun! We came home for a pirate ship cake that I made, my most ambitious one to date. I had a little fiasco the night before, it split in half so I baked another one froze the cake this time and it all worked out! Presents and busted open the pinata! The boys were all very well behaved and everyone got along great! It was a great party, lots of work but totally worth it. Later Jacob came up to me with a great big bear hug and said "Thanks mom for the best party ever!" That makes it all worth while! I love you Jacob. You are such a blessing in my life. I am so fortunate Heavenly Father has trusted me with you, you are the reason I got my act together. You always can make me smile. I am so proud of the young man you are becoming to be. I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be!

The cake turned out great! Darren is still so upset that he couldn't make it! His Dad wouldn't let him bail on his team. Sounds like a blast though. Thanks for thinking of him with the goodie bag. Jacob will remember this for a long time. Very fun!
