Happy 5th Birthday Andon!

My sweet little one's birthday is today. I honestly can't believe he is already five! We spent an hour or so this morning watching videos from when he was a baby. I remember it like it was yesterday. He was the sweetest little baby with his big green eyes and head full of light brown hair. He was standing at my feet in one of the videos trying to say mama and kept saying yaya with this new little voice. And now he is so big in every way. My five year old is over half of my height! He'll definately be taller than me by ten or eleven!

Yesterday we spent the whole day celebrating his birthday because Daddy was home. I let Andon pick what he wanted for breakfast and i'm sure you guessed it, junk food! :) We went and got a donut at Dunkin Donut's. Here's a few pics from there.

For lunch we went to Chuck E. Cheese. It was Andon's first time going there and of course he loved it! We all had so much fun there! Here are a few pics from that...

Andon hit the jackpot on this game!!

I scared all the kids away with my skills!! :)

Yeah this picture, we'll have to do a seperate post about Jared and the honeypot game... :) too funny!!

After dinner we went to Cold Stone Creamery and got some ice cream...

Here's what we did to Andon's room while he was sleeping last night.. He loved waking up in his party room as he called it. :)

And here he is playing with the gift that we got him today. He loves pirates!

Tonight i'm making his favorite dinner. Baked chicken (he loves the skin), baked potatoes and corn on the cob. It also happens to be Jared's favorite too! :) And we picked up a Carvel Ice Cream cake that looks like a football. That's what he wanted.. :) I'll take pics of that later.

It has been so much fun celebrating the birth of my boy.

I am so thankful God blessed Jared and I with this precious little boy. My life changed forever November 4th 2003 at 8:15 a.m. I will never forget holding my brand new baby, looking at his little face and telling him "I will love you forever". Thank you Lord for this precious gift!
