Yep, today my gorgeous boy turns 5. I cant believe it...boy time flies doesnt it!
I can still remember when he was a baby...seems like yesterday.

We are so very blessed to have this beautiful little dude in our lives...he is so funny and cute, cheeky, smart and witty (oh you have nooooo idea)loving and affectionate...i could go on and on but you get my drift..I think it's how most mums feel about their kids.
In his 5 years my Sam has been through a fair bit ...2 operations on his foot and almost losing his Dad to cancer .....i think he is such a strong little man, he came through it all like a trooper.Im so proud of him.

This morning Sam woke up to our Family Room full of streamers and balloons...

Blowing out the candles on his Spongebob Cake i made him.

At his Birthday Party on saturday with his friends at Lollypops Playland

So today its all about Sam...we are off to the river for a family picnic and to play in the park in the sunshine (and eat Spongebob cake).

Happy Birthday Sam..... Mummy and Daddy love you to the moon and back.

What a blessing these kids that we are given to care for are!

I know on my kids birthdaus I always have the bitter-sweet moments where whilst I lokk at them and give thanks I also revisit their births and the induvidual stories that go with the arrival of each of them.
Those getting to know you days that followed!!

Being a Mum is all consuming and I am sure none of us would ever be able to imagine or "universe " without our little punks in it!!!

Hope Sam enjoys "HIS" Special Day!

p.s love the cake...My son would go "barnacle" over it!!! lol!!
