Our little trumpeter! I have become a groupie for Tommy's middle school Jazz Band. This group is so fun to listen to. The jazz ensemble is a band whose members are selected through auditions. Their busiest time is the spring. He participated in 5 Jazz competitions. This picture was taken after his section won for Best Brass performance.
Tommy also participates in Marching/Concert band. There was one parade and one concert this Spring.
He had a big birthday in April.
No, he's not a teenager yet, but he's 12 and that means he gets to ride in the front seat of the car. Big stuff.
Let's take a closer look at that cake, shall we?
You're probably wondering what the heck is going on there. Tommy requested a cake with no icing. I figured that idea wouldn't go over so well with the rest of the gang (myself included) so I left icing off part of it. That yellow icing is supposed to be a trumpet. If you squint your eyes and use your imagination you can see it.

He is our wild child. When I go outside to look for him, I look up because he is most definitely climbing something. He tortures his little brother with love, and if he could, he would eat Doritos day and night.
He's a great kid.
Love you Tom-Bomb!
