Caleb turned fifteen today!  He had a party here at home yesterday, with all of us and one of his friends, Lauryn.  We had pizza and an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins.  It’s the first birthday we haven’t made a homemade cake for him.  🙁 Of course, nobody complained.

(I’m not sure what the trouble is here, but it sure wasn’t the cake. Or the pizza.)

We watched some videos from Caleb’s baby and toddler years, which were really cute and funny at first and then a little bit boring.  It made us smile to see a miniature Caleb rolling around and grabbing at things, but after 20 minutes or so, fast forwarding seemed like a good option. 😉  The adults in the videos were more attention-grabbing, especially a pre-Mia David with an army haircut and a New Mexican accent–and the same funny sense of humor. 🙂

Lauryn kept us laughing all day and quickly won Cash’s heart, which I’m sure had nothing to do with the seemingly endless supply of candy and gummy worms that materialized wherever she went.  All we heard for the second half of the day was “Wo-win? Wo-win? Do you have any mo’ gummies fo’ me?”

It was a really fun party, and all the kids had an awesome time–even when Cash had a stinky little something go off in his pants at the table that nearly required us all to don gas masks.

Yesterday our snow was almost melted, but that wasn’t the last of it.  Caleb’s birthday usually brings one of the last snows with it, and this year was no different. (That’s a box of jewelry-making supplies for me, BTW. Yaaaaay!!!)

This morning we woke up once again to a white-coated world, and the snow continued off and on throughout the day.  But snow or no, we have such a good life up here–and birthday parties are just the icing on the cake.

Happy Birthday, Caleb!
