Playing Catch-Up, Part 1

Last week was Troyer's birthday. He's 14! He loved helping make birthday cakes for his brothers, but he didn't want to make his own. At the bakery counter, we couldn't find any theme cakes he liked, so he picked out one that looked tie-dyed, and put his favorite cars on top, Volkswagen Beetles! Thanks to Aunt Aimee, who got the little cars.


On to opening presents. Troyer seems to be the easiest to buy for. He likes lots of things! He got Ninja Turtle mini figures, a movie, a book about the science in Indiana Jones, a little stuffed rabbit, and a comic book (oh, excuse me, *graphic novel*) of Indiana Jones.

How cute it he!! Oh... or should I say that he is 14 and all! Your couch with a pile of boys on it is just so cool! I don't have that many...but we have neighbor boys over often and the numbers rise!! Gotta love it!
I enjoy keeping up with you and your boys!

Happy birthday to him! Love the pictures with all the boys together.

Funny, I was just watching "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and all the brothers have red hair! (I hope your boys find brides easier than they did, LOL!)
