Tonight we celebrated the biggest kid. The one who made us parents first.
On this day seven years ago, we were nervous, anxious, smitten and in total awe of this little boy that God has gifted us with.
Our celebration tonight with family consisted of Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins running amuck. After seven years, I think we're finally finding our groove when it comes to parties, and it doesn't seem to get any better with excellent grilling weather each April.
We had burgers, hot dogs, watermelon, deviled eggs, chips, baked beans.... And of course cake! Pikachu chocolate cake to be exact along with some "energy ball" Pokemon cookies.
Pokemon is the latest craze in the Kroh house with cards everywhere and binders taken here and there for trading with friends all the time. One of his favorite Pokemon cards happens to be his awesome birthday invite though. ("Venue" blurred out for obvious reasons.)
Not much brings me greater joy than spoiling my children. And I'm so thankful that we have family and friends who love them and enjoy spoiling them too.
Our Leeland is kind, genuine, and smart. He tells it like it is, is curious, and he's one fantastic big brother to his younger siblings. I'm excited and thankful that I get to watch him grow year after year. I can't wait to see what God has in store for his future and continue to pray that his light shines bright.
