his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

5 Years Old

Joe was blessed with 2 birthday parties this year. The first took place in Tacoma before we left and would not have happened without Mom and Dad and Aunt Vee.

I can almost guarantee that 10 years ago before mom was even a grandmother that she would have ever imagined a need to make a Yoda cake. However now 8 grandson's(possibly 9) later her skills are coming in quite handy. Pretty Impressive!
Poor asthma boy had a rough time blowing out all 5 candles but it was accomplished eventually.
Fun gifts

Thank you Kamke's for this cool towel
All of this brought to you by this lovely lady

Our Japanese birthday was much less of an extravaganza especially as we were all feeling under the weather. But, here was the birthday boy requested chocolate chip scone breakfast.
After a downloaded sermon and some hymn singing(it was Sunday) we had some pizza(as requested) and blew out the candles.

Opened up gifts and then took a long nap!

Happy Birthday Joey we love you soo much!


  1. Happy Birthday, Joseph! Sorry, we wanted to try and Skype you all yesterday, but we were in the car driving most of the day. Maybe we will try later this week!

  2. Happy Birthday Joe-Joe! Can't believe you are 5!

  3. Hey... It's great to see you doing well. What an adventure! I am jealous. If only we were a bit more adventurous... What a fun bunch. I am sure it's quite a sight for the yellow folk to see all the little white buggers running around.

  4. Love the yoda cake! How funny, we did a Star Wars theme for Patrick and Ethan's joint birthday this year too. Patrick also turned 5 on the 18th of Oct. Must be a boy thing ;o)
