Spencer's Birthday Video

The Birthday video we sent to Spencer. :)

To help you understand this video a bit better:

The Edwards family has a tradition called "The First Bite." Everyone gathers around and pounds the table while yelling. It all just gets louder and louder with the anticipation of the first bite of birthday cake. And of course, the birthday person usually takes their time and draws out the mayhem as long as possible.

It just so happens that blowing out the candles is also a big deal. Farrell always comes up with something innovative each year: Blowing them out doing push-ups, blowing them out while in a headstand, running around the house between small little blows at the cake, etc... Spencer said that he somehow used chopsticks to blow out the candles--resulting in a rather wax-filled cake. :) He took a video but I guess we'll just have to wait until next year to see it.

btw: Thanks everyone who were able to send bday messages for us to include on the video! Talk about a last minute, spur of the moment project! Spencer said he absolutely loved it!
