We celebrated our firstborn, Nash, in 5 year-old Lego style this weekend! It was so fun! Nash loved every bit of it…except for the part where everyone sings Happy Birthday to him…he hates that part and falls completely apart. Nash has always hated the attention of everyone singing to him…and I always forget that small detail until we are halfway through singing and I see the tears coming. Oops. Even with that little hiccup, Nash loved the party and felt so loved and celebrated. It was a fun group of boys from church and school. I’m grateful for the people in our lives who love us and our children so well.
Happy Birthday Nash! My hopes and dreams for you are massive, but they pale in comparison to those Jesus has for you. It’s going to be a great year. I love you more than words could ever say.
The birthday boy!
It was a sad little cake…but Nash loved it and it tasted pretty good, so let’s just overlook the fact that it doesn’t look that great! Thanks.
Fighting back the tears. Hold it together. Get those candles blown out. Mama’s here for your little man. Maybe 6 with be a better year for singing. 🙂
This is so much fun!!!!!! Sugar high!!! Lego high!!!! I love being 5!!!
Pinata time!! Not that Pinata’s have anything to do with Legos…but when you have 10 little boys gathered together for a party it’s good for them to get some energy out!
I love this action shot!
Great expression on Nash’s face!
Meyer’s fake smile. She had a great time partying with the big kids!
Evyn’s turn at the photo booth…
Lego scavenger hunt! I made sheets with pictures of 10 different Lego men for each of the kids. I then hid the Lego men around the yard and the kids had to go hunt for them and circle the matching Lego man on their sheet. It was a fun and easy activity.
Cake from Nash’s actual birthday (Friday). Mimi and Pop Pop came over to celebrate with us. Per Nash’s request we ordered in “sweet Chinese chicken”.
It’s sad to see your friends go…and the party end! There’s always next year little man…
