The chainsaw Elijah, Daddy, and Luke created from his K'nex Education Kit "Gears."
Elijah LOVES reading "manual" type books...his favorite, well-used, well-worn book is The Survival Handbook: Essential Skills for Outdoor Adventure by Towell. We found these great books from Popular Mechanics that he's already taken a liking to: The Boy Camper, The Boy Scientist, The Boy Mechanic, and The Boy Mechanic Makes Toys.
And, of course, we all enjoyed the "traditional-9x13-sprinkle-filled cake" with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday!
I love you, Elijah! You are a joy and a pleasure! How blessed we are that God has given you to our family!!!
