Happy Birthday Caleb!

Today is Caleb's 10th birthday.

We are so grateful to have Caleb in our family. He had a scarry beginning...as some of you will remember...but he made it through, and is a really great kid. He is very thoughtful and kind. He loves to laugh, and make others laugh as well. He is an expert on many animals, with Hawaiian fish being his new area of expertise. Whenever we have company, we visit the aquarium, and he is a very accurate tour guide for all of our guests. He loves reading, penguins, dogs and everything Star Wars. He also loves video games, and TV. His favorite TV shows include Dirty Jobs, Myth Busters, anything on Animal Planet, and Funny Videos. He is a gentleman, and races his dad to get my car door opened for me, and he loves to hug everyone. He is a good soccer player, and just graduated into the Webelos den in Cub Scouts last week. He has earned all his badges from Tiger to Bear, and plenty belt loops, pins, and arrow points to boot. Happy Birthday Caleb! We love you!

It was kind of funny this morning. He opened the case for a Nintendo DS, and then a game for a DS, and then we told him that was the end of the presents. He was like, No! That can't be all!

He was really excited to get a Nintendo DS for his birthday. I was really scared to get him one, because, if we would let him, he would sit and play video games or watch TV every waking hour. Even though it is his, there will definatly be a time limit.
This Friday, Caleb is having a birthday party with 10 of his friends. His last birthday party with friends was when he was five!! so we figured he deserved another one. For the party, we're having pizza and then watching Caleb's second favorite movie...Return of the Jedi. His favorite movie is Revenge of the Sith, but as I just found out, that particular movie is the only one of the Star Wars movies that is rated PG-13, and we didn't want any problems with parents, so we had him pick his second favorite. His actual first response to the question, "What is your favorite movie?", was "All the Star Wars movies.", so we had him narrow it down for us. I will take pictures of that and post them on here later.

I am just catching up on all the blog entries.........it's so nice to have all the information and pictures. Caleb looks like he has grown a little taller since we were there last summer. I know him as a sensitive, caring, kind and loving person, without your description and I love him very much. Mommer
