Talon Turns Two

"If you don't like my fire, then don't come around
cause I'm gonna burn one down" - Ben Harper

The day has come. Talon is officially "terrible."  To be honest, he has been practicing for a while now and pretty much only needed the birthday for us to use it as an excuse ;)

His sisters are older and more experienced.  They were anticipating and getting excited for his birthday more than he was.  They know that a birthday means presents and cake and the limelight.  He really didn't, but you've never seen a kid that knows how to manipulate his sisters more.  He is the one pushing the buttons and in charge.

Anyway, the birthday celebration was simple and small, but the kids had a blast.  The cake was a classic because the girls "helped" to make it and they all loved it.  The only problem was getting the candles blown out without getting burned... so they could start eating (see video).

Without further ado, here are the photos and video that most of you came to see:

Note:  I know what the song above is about.... the nice thing about music is that you can create your own meanings and it can symbolize whatever you want.  Talon's candle blowing/burning abilities are interestingly related to how he lives his life.  A sweet melody and a pretty smile with a slow burn - dangerously close to the eyes... and you better watch out or the whole house might erupt in chaos.  Plus, try thinking of a song with burn/fire in it that doesn't.... have a symbolic meaning.


  1. I"m totally digging that cake! Might have to make one like that for someone's 32nd birthday :)

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday Talon! What a handsome little man! Looks like you all had a fun time celebrating-I want some of the candy off of that cake about now.

  3. Happy Birthday Talbe! We have watched your movies three times! You are such a cute little guy and we hope you had to best day ever!
