That night he got to open his present from Grammie and Pop-pop. A big dump truck! He was so thrilled. Lately he's been hooking up his dump truck to his trike and "towing" it around the house.
Friday night after pizza we had birthday cake. I had Sammy look through a book of different party cakes, dinosaurs, trucks, balls, etc. and he wanted a train cake. His absolute most favorite book is The Little Engine That Could. So, I went to work on making him a train birthday cake that looked, or at least resembled the Little Blue Engine. I'm not sure if I totally accomplished my goal, but I think it turned out really well and, the most important thing, Sammy loved it!
Here's some little snip-it's of Sammy this week: upon putting the fireball in his mouth that was the light on top of the Little Blue Engine, Sammy said, "This is spicy...but I can handle it." "Follow me guys." "But I don't want to." Pray that Sammy makes it to his fourth birthday;).
