The Birthday Boy

Silas John
Silas comes from the Latin for 'tree'.
His life verses, from Psalm 1:1-3
is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

This sweet lad is indeed growing like a tree.
Maybe not in stature *yet*, his younger brothers
are quickly catching up to him. Oh my!
But within his strong and stealthy frame is
a heart for the Lord that is thriving.
We have been so blessed to watch the Lord work
in his young heart! We love you Silas John,
may your life continue to abound in delight,
love, compassion and knowledge. You bring
us so much joy and we treasured celebrating
you with our family today.

Let the cupcake making begin!

Even Jude got in on the action :)

Blueberry cream cupcakes with fresh
whipped cream and raspberries straight
from the bush, picked by the birthday boy
himself. *Berry* deeeelicious!

Grandma is quickly becoming famous for her
birthday bouquets. They just keep getting better
and better! We think she should start her
own business :)

Celebrating with four generations around
the table put a big smile on this sweet
little man's face.

And the Lego adventures begin...

Heart-shaped pancakes for supper

And the perfect end to a five-year old's
birthday? Riding his bike...without
training wheels!!! Gooooooo, Silas!

Happy birthday to our precious boy.
We love you so much!
