And Now He is Six

Our little man turned 6 years old yesterday.  He planned out his birthday dinner about 2 months ago.  He enjoyed his choice of BBQ pork ribs, macaroni and cheese, along with baked beans.  He chose to skip a pretty bakery cake and he went for his favorite dessert...an oreo ice cream cake.  He has come along way from his five year old birthday dinner request.  That year he wanted oatmeal for dinner!
While we were singing happy birthday, he put his arm around Matty to let him share in the blowing out of the candles.  By the way, Matt and Chelsea got him his favorite gift of all...a toy sniper rifle from Bass Pro Shops!
Matt and Chelsea and Jacob were enjoying the evening together!

Joshua helped Seth load his gun with the pops.  He took the first shot.  I think he enjoyed it!

We are thinking that Hope may be our next engineer!  She is the best at putting toys together for Seth.  She not only is good at, but she enjoys it!
Hope built Seth a cool army station on the fireplace to enjoy all of his new toys.  It was apparent by listening to his bedtime prayer last night that he was a very blessed boy!

grace and peace,

Meat always makes the boys happy! He's growing up so fast! I can't believe he's six already!

Jules,
It is crazy to think that I remember Matt when he was 6. Where does the time go? I love your family - what a blessed little boy you have!
Love,
Concetta
PS...I choose gizzards, macaroni & cheese and lima beans...any chance of that???

Carmen,
We were all thankful that he has finally learned the ways of choosing birthday dinners!

Paige,
Time does fly. I got your email, and am very excited for you. We are praying and please keep us informed as you learn more!!!

Concetta,
Seth reminds me a lot of Matthew at that age.
And about that Birthday dinner request...since I HATE gizzards that somehow doesn't seem fitting for OUR birthday dinner...let's change the gizzards to broccoli and cheese!!! Maybe we can rope Michael and TJ into cooking for us...what kind of cake sounds good?

Pam,
Yes, another fun thing that matches up in our lives!! Tell your guy "Happy Birthday". If I ever get down that way again, I want a ride in that Swamp Buggy Thing!!!

Ashley,
Thanks! We did have a fun time.

grace and peace,
