Caleb’s Birthday Celebration

My parents were able to come visit on March 30, a couple of days before Caleb’s 6th birthday. Caleb was excited to have Grandma and Papa involved in the celebrating!

I already mentioned in his birthday letter that most of his gifts were baseball related. And so was his cake! He wanted a “baseball field” cake…and this is what we came up with. If I was braver, I might try fondant someday (since it looks so cool), but alas, I’m not.

I also mentioned in that post that his major gift from us was an opportunity to see a Tigers game. I’m so excited for Caleb and Luke to go this coming Saturday to the Home Plate Event at Comerica Park.

I started a new tradition this year: 20 Questions. I will ask the kiddos the same 20 questions each year on their birthdays, and keep the answers all together just for fun memories.

Here are Caleb’s 20 questions and answers from his sixth birthday…
My favorite food is: what I’m having right now (birthday dinner)
My favorite sport to play is: baseball
The coolest person on Earth is: God
My favorite movie to watch is: Milltown Pride
My favorite thing to learn about in school is: math worksheets
If I could go anywhere in the world, I’d go to: Heaven
My favorite color is: blue
When I grow up, I’m going to: again, be a baseball player
Three words that describe me are: Caleb Aaron Rumley
When I was little, I used to: whine like a baby; ask for treats
My favorite season of the year is: summer, ’cause it’s so warm
The snack I like the best is: [Kraft Handi-snacks] sticks and cheese
My favorite thing about church is: that you learn more and more stuff, and it feels like it gets cooler and cooler
My favorite Scripture verse is: “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.” Acts 16:31
My favorite song is: Praise Him, Praise Him
One of my best friends is: Karisa
My favorite thing to do outside is: ride my bike down to the rock; pet the doggies
If I had one wish it would be: to have a dog
My best memory is: a long, long time ago, Jaden’s first word was “Bible”
My birthday dinner this year is: sausage pizza, Doritos, yogurt, juice boxes, OJ, blueberry juice, and a baseball cake


  1. Fun tradition! We laughed at his birthday dinner – I think he is related to Betsey! Love them both!

    Glad your birthday was special. Love the cake too!

    Zachary is with you on the thrill of baseball. His first practice is tonight!

  2. Caleb – you can come visit George anytime you have a hankerin’ for a dog! I can teach you how to take care of a dog and train him too if you want (or maybe Uncle Dan will…he’s a better trainer than me!).

    Happy Birthday!

  3. When I read that his favorite aspect of school is math worksheets, I began to wonder if this kid and I could even be blood relatives. And then I read that his dinner included three different types of fruit juice, and I regained my confidence. Excellent choices, sir! 🙂

    Sorry I didn’t call this year. I’ve been getting forgetful with birthdays lately, and once I remember I’m too embarrassed to call and apologize on top of saying “Happy birthday.” But I do sincerely hope he enjoyed it, and it appears he did!

    His favorite memory verse is just too precious. Do you think he is feeling burdened for the lost already, at such a young age?

    Love you, Caleb! It is so fun to watch you grow into a God-fearing, charming, smart, and entertaining young man.

  4. How special that Caleb mentioned Karisa – What special friends God has given us in your family!
