Little Boys Grow Up To Be Men

Oliver hits the 'age of Manhood'! Twelve.
Luk 2:42-52
And when He (Jesus) became twelve, they went up [there] according to the custom of the Feast; and as they were returning, after spending the full number of days, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. And His parents were unaware of it, but supposed Him to be in the caravan, and went a day's journey; and they [began] looking for Him among their relatives and acquaintances. And when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, looking for Him. And it came about that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them, and asking them questions. And all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding and His answers. And when they saw Him, they were astonished; and His mother said to Him, "Son, why have You treated us this way? Behold, Your father and I have been anxiously looking for You." And He said to them, "Why is it that you were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had to be in My Father's [house?]" And they did not understand the statement which He had made to them. And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth; and He continued in subjection to them; and His mother treasured all [these] things in her heart. And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

Happy birthday to Oliver!

Ha, I just saw the first picture of the cake and from the angle, the candles look like some sort of nuts or seeds. Like sunflower seeds. I was thinking "That's an interesting addition to a chocolate cake. I may have to try that."
