Birthday Pirates!

7 years ago today we were blessed with another little boy who brings lots of love, joy & loads of hilarity to our lives!  His name is Samuel which means, "asked of God" and I spent almost 2 years asking for him.

We like to tell him he was named after another "Sam" too (which he was in a way) - Samwise Gamgee, BFF of Frodo Baggins from "The Lord of The Rings."

When I was sitting in the theatre watching "LOTR, Return of The King" because I'm a supportive wife and that's what we do, not at all because  Viggo was in the movie...really!  I turned to my husband and said, "You know, if our prayers are answered, and we're lucky enough to have another little boy, I think we should name him Samwise Gamgee.  He's the real hero of this story and I think I love him."  My husband thought for a second and then said, "Or we could just name him Samuel because he might get made fun of with a name like Samwise."  "Yeah, OK, that works for me."

So our little Samwise wants to be a Pirate today and asked specifically for Pirate Cupcakes:
Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes & Chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes

Arg! It's a Pirate's life for me!
