Happy Birthday, Michael!

Happy 5th Birthday to our sweet blondie boy!
Mommy and Daddy love you so much. You
fill our lives and home with laughter and fun. You are a
great brother to Lauren and Caleb. We love you!

Yes....I'm just a little bit behind schedule. Michaels' birthday
was really Sunday, the 3rd. It's hard for me to
look at all the pictures I've posted and realize how time
is speeding by SO quickly!! Sunday, after church, there were
persents to open! Lauren even went to the Dollar Store
and spent $2 of her own money to buy him a couple gifts.


Tuesday, there was a party. Originally we were just
going to have a quiet little party with a couple boys over
to play. I was going to use regular old plates, and just have a playday
for him. Well, the morning of the party, I made the mistake of going to the party
store. We came out with 8 balloons, and ALL the matching dinosaur
party goods!

There was a dinosaur egg hunt to start off the party. Then it
started to I had to quickly think up a few indoor games. Musical
chairs went over well. By this time it had quit raining....
so we all trooped back outside. :)

There were 8 kids in all! It was a really fun day....Michael hated for it
to come to an end!
L to R: Fr. Row Adam Kelly, Michael, Alan Brown, and Caleb.
Back Row: Alex Kelly, Warren Shirk, Daniel Shirk, Chris Stamper, and Lauren.

Dino cake by Marianne!

Nearing the end of the party, Michael reminded me no one had sung
to him yet and he hadn't gotten to blow out his candle....oh yeah...
so that's what I bought that candle for! haha....hence, the picture below!
