D. Spencer's 5th Birthday

Spencer sure has been looking forward to his birthday this year. Maybe because he started school. or maybe just because birthday's are fun. Anyway , he requested a rocket ship for his birthday cake. I put what I thought was a carton of frosting in my basket at Smart and Final and it ended up being whipped topping instead, so when we went to decorate the cake we decided a chocolate rocket would be just fine. As I have said before, kids are easy to please. We celebrated on Sunday, when all the cousins came, even though his birthday is September 2nd. For dinner, he specified spaghetti and meatballs. Now an articulate speaking, bouncy and imaginative kid, Spencer has captivated us all since he was a baby and had that spikey hair we adored. He loves school and showed me the "Student of the Day" sticker he recently received on one of my recent visits to the Delgado boys room. He had it taped above his bed. "Teachers use a lot of tape, " he said. I know he'll have a great year.

Everyone likes to watch the gift opening.
