11 Year old Scouts here we come!

Talmage had his birthday and is now the big 11!  It sure doesn't seem like it has been 11 years since our first baby joined our family!  Man, crazy how time flies!  It also doesn't seem like we have done cubs for 3 years and are now onto Boy Scouts!  Talmage sure loves scouting and asked for books, uniform, mess kit, compass, etc for his birthday!  The best part was that the 11 year olds had a camp out the night of his birthday!  What a great present to get to go camping with the scouts and Daddy!  

Here are the boys playing frisbee on the camp out with their leader. 

Talmage all ready to use his new compass!

We waited til after the camp out to do the family celebration!  We invited family over and had a yummy lasagna dinner, per Talmage's request.  He also requested the delicious 4 layer pumpkin cake for his dessert!  Talmage has such great taste buds ;).

All ready to light his candles!

Daddy gets to help work the fire :)

I was too slow to get the blowing out... awe well

Present time!

We love our oldest, first baby boy!  He is a great, loving, smart, determined, goal oriented, kid!  I can't wait to see all of the awesome things Talmage will accomplish in his life!  He will be earning his Arrow of Light this month as well as the Webelos super achiever award!  We are so proud of all of his hard work!
