Happy Birthday Bwudda!

Hello All,

Five years ago today, Lela and I welcomed Caleb into the world. He was born at Redlands Community, just like his sisters and it was a ridiculously hot day when he came into the world. As you might have read, we held Caleb's birthday party over Mother's day weekend. It was there that he enjoyed his first cup of soda and his first piece of gum. We started telling him that he was five then, but it felt pretty artificial. Today, we didn't even acknowledge his true birthday, but I will right here, right now.

Caleb is such a blessing from the Lord. He is easily our most joyful child, always looking for a gag, including the one in this picture. I just wanted to see if he would fit in the dryer when a gag entered his mind. "Daddy, close the door." (Don't worry: I didn't leave the dryer on THAT long!) Instinctively, I knew what he was going for. Lela was upstairs and I called her to come down and open the dryer door. Caleb did not know that I had let Lela in on the joke. When Lela opened the door, this look was on his face. It tells the whole story!

Happy Birthday Bwudda!

Blessings...To Our Friends,
Frank Sanchez

Hey Frankie,
It was such a treat for our family to take part in the celebration. The food, fun, & fellowship was terrific. Caleb certainly is the Child of Joy at your house! He has fun no matter what he's doing and he always seems to have a smile on his face. God bless you and your family....

Thanks Steve and Jeff and Aimee!

We are blessed with each of the kids and they all have their own special thing. I hope that Caleb will continue to specialize in the realm of joy!
