happy birthday caleb!

Caleb turned 10 today!  It is hard to imagine that he is that old already.  When people give me a hard time about how much I baby Micah, I just have to assume they have no idea how fast time goes.  It seems like just yesterday I was holding newborn Caleb in my arms.  There was something special about that kid from the moment he was born.  Maybe it had something to do with the doctor telling Matt and I that there was a knot in his cord and it was a miracle he was alive.  Or maybe it just had to do with Caleb.  He is one sweet kid!  Was then and is now.
 At Panera celebrating his birthday with mom and dad (and Micah of course).

 All the girls had a part in Caleb's cake.  Alissa baked it, Brianna decorated it and Leah put the candles in.

 If you are a 10 year old boy in the Currier home, you get a pocket knife for your birthday.  Caleb tried to convince us last year that 9 was close enough to 10, but it didn't work.  He still had to wait :)  Looks like he figured it was worth the wait!
 Safety first!  Matt showing Caleb how to open and close it carefully and also how to keep it locked when not in use.  Oh- included in that lesson was careful instruction on when it was not going to be in use!
Happy Birthday Caleb!  You are one loved boy!  Keep your sweet spirit, determination and most of all your love for God.  You'll be unstoppable!
