That jump from five year old kid to six year old kid seems big for some reason. Today my middle-est as we like to call him, Owen, is turning SIX!
|Good-bye to Five! This is Owen last night doing some baking. I told him it was his last night being five, so he held up his five little fingers. Now it will take two hands to show people his age, I told him! Wow, it goes so quickly!|
I love being able to do special things for my boys! This morning I made Owen a great big pancake birthday breakfast with strawberries, and even chocolate mousse and sprinkles to top it off! Needless to say, he was thrilled!!!
Yesterday, Owen and I had a little fun doing a Birthday Quiz, which I try to remember to do with the kids every year. It is so fun hearing their answers!

We would have done a few more questions, but then William woke up from his nap! It is always so fun to be surprised by the things they say and do! I though I knew how he would answer all of these questions, but he always has his own original ideas. Sometimes his ideas change from day to day! The one about what he wants to be when he grows up was unexpected. I thought he might say an artist since he is always drawing and creating things! I love this kid so much! I am really going to miss our special after school time next year when he is in first grade!
Happy Birthday to my amazing six year old!
