i love making my son happy.  in that sense…today was a great day.  we spent the day making a HUGE deal of isaac’s 2nd birthday.  his actual birthday is tomorrow, but today was the celebration.  we started the day off with a train set that took my father in law and i 4 hours to put together (see figure 1 and 2).  a few hours later our families showed up with loads of presents (see figure 3).  then we ate cake (see figure 4 and 5).  it was a huge success!  

what is it about making your kids happy?  every time i see isaac light up i want to start crying with joy.  i imagine that i’m feeling a tinge of what God must feel when He blesses us…His children.  i love my son and there are days that i give him what he wants because it is best.  there are also days that i give him what is best and not what he wants.  today i just plain spoiled him because i’m super double excited he’s alive…
