While Christian experimented, Nara warmed herself on the furnace vent. I think Golden may have wanted her to share some of the heat, since it was a chilly day.
“Fine, I’ll go!”
Way back near the beginning of January, during our hectic robot-build season, Christian turned 17.
Golden wanted to eat Christian’s new duct tape.
As usual, Grandma baked Christian’s request–yummy homemade peanut butter cake. Sister Rebecca used the torch to light his candles.
What a handsome young man!
Among many gifts, Christian received a handy-dandy crowbar. Just the thing every teenager needs!
Grandma and Aunt Nay were surprised to see they had worn matching red plaid flannel shirts:) Unfortunately, they look like palm leaves are growing from their heads here. Perhaps I should have instead posed them outside in our winter landscape?
Uncle Matt kindly held Golden’s paw.
We enjoyed seeing cousin Jeanni’s growing baby-bump, too.
Thanks for joining us in celebrating Christian’s birthday!
