1+1=11

Caleb turned 11 today.
I tried, and tried, and tried to get him to engage in planning a party.
He resisted, and resisted, and resisted.
Finally, Caleb asked me, "Mom, couldn't we just have my family over?
You know, Grandma and Papa, and my aunts and uncles?"
Well, duh.
I am all about a high energy party. Caleb is all about low key.
He had a great night.
He chose chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream, pizza, pop, chips,
veggies and ranch dip, and orange slices for his dinner.

Happy Birthday, Man.
You are you, and I love you just like that.

Happy birthday, Caleb!

My brother is and has always been the exact same way. Even his wedding was low-key.

Gotta love a man who knows what he wants - especially when all he wants is dinner with his family!
