Birthdays, S'mores & More


My Goddaughter, Anna Scott, turned 7 years old a few days ago. Since we're in St. Louis now, we were able to be there for the small family celebration. The cold St. Louis weather meant a fire pit in the backyard. And the fire pit meant S'mores. I'm not really a fan of them, and I guess I was the only one.

I love the excitement found at kids' birthday parties. Seems like yesterday when I was attending those same parties, always excited to see what the lucky birthday boy or girl got for presents.

Now that I'm approaching 40, I don't look forward to birthdays much anymore. So I try to help my kids capture those moments that I still hold near and dear to my heart.

It was great getting to see Sloane and Hunter play with their cousins. The move to St. Louis wasn't easy for them...especially Sloane...but being with their cousins will definitely help...
