Happy Birthday, Silas!

5 Years old
 and a passion for hockey!
Before tossing an old table-top hockey game, I pulled off the figures.
Perfect for cake toppers!

We ALL played Pin-the-tail-on-the Donkey before
singing Happy Birthday.

A gift from Aunt Abbey (Silas's other passion)
 Dear Boy!

Lorraine- What a beautiful child. He has the most gorgeous eyes! What a precious, precious age-not a baby anymore but not quite a "big boy" yet- It is one of my favorite ages. Perfect cake for him...love the figureines-great thought to save them for re-use. I know you will be having a wonderful Mother's Day! xxoo Diana

That is the sweetest face - the first photo is beautiful and the look of surprise when he received his Stanley Cup photo is priceless!

We love hockey at our house too - but we've been Detroit Red Wing fans for years and years! Maybe Silas could cheer them on now that the Flyers are taking a little break!

Your family is one of the most beautiful families I've ever seen!!! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Laurie said...

I enjoyed all of the photos of Silas' birthday and the rest of the family that day. What a handsome boy he is - 5 is such a fun age!
