I can't believe this kid http://tmvigneau.blogspot.com/2010/02/israel-videos.html is 5!!!
Turning 5 is such a milestone because suddenly you are eligible for school. Real school. It means you are growing up. Just last week you suddenly told me you didn't want a mower ( gasp!) cake you wanted a Star Wars cake which is funny because you have never seen Star Wars and you don't even know all the characters and you ask me who such and such is and I have no idea! I know some of the main characters because I grew up with 4 brothers but my Star Wars knowledge is slim to none. So we went with a Star Wars theme. You picked out your plates and table cloth and we found light saber cupcake toppers and the theme was born. Daddy and I wanted to take you out on a birthday date just you and us for some quality time. You picked 5 Guys Burgers as the restaurant. We went our for burgers just you and me and Daddy and then we went to Toys R Us to pick out just one more gift. You picked out 2 Lego sets. We already gave you some Lego sets but all you wanted for your birthday this year was Legos and an excavator. You also wanted to go to Tractor Supply and pick out a mini fork lift so we did that too. You bought the fork lift with your own money that you earned helping Daddy with yard work and other various chores.
After our date at 5 guys and Lego shopping we went home and had Star Wars cupcakes made by Daddy. You wanted vanilla cupcakes with jimmies in them and chocolate frosting.
Samuel thoroughly enjoyed your birthday as well!
