Levi turned six this year. Celebrating birthdays has always been such a gift to me. Especially my kids birthdays. This year was no different…although six seems SO BIG!! Now that the boys are getting a little older, I love hearing their party ideas. They have some pretty creative and crazy ideas! Levi wanted to have a space party this year. I wasn’t so sure about the whole space theme, but it turns out that cute posters (thank you, Caravan Shoppe!), hand drawn stars and moons, an inflatable astronaut and a few balloons make a pretty cute space party. The space party was so fun!
A January birthday means the party table and cute little chairs stay inside. We even brought the lemonade stand inside too. Levi is always trying to think of things he can sell at our parties now. Haha.
My sister in law made the moon cookies. I wish you could taste her sugar cookies. They are so good. At the end of the party I was whining to Joel about not getting a cookie. It truly is a tragedy if you don’t get to eat one of these cookies, they are that good! Joel got a little smile on his face and told me he had hidden six cookies in the cupboard. I love him.
I don’t know what we are going to do when Levi starts wanting to invite friends to his party too. Good thing his cousins are some of his best friends because they already fill up the table…and they weren’t even all able to come!
I am so thankful for the six years God has given us with this sweet boy. He overflows with joy. God has used him in so many ways to restore our joy and fill our home with laughter since the day he was born. I love seeing him make so many others smile and laugh now too. He is a social one. He loves people, family, school, and is always ready for a party. He is smart. He is quick to learn, remembers everything, somehow already has a sense of direction (he puts me to shame), and loves to create. He is always up for helping me with a craft or project and I love having his company. He is all boy. He loves getting dirty, building legos, farming with dad, wrestling, and sports. He loves watching football and has become quite the avid Denver Bronco and Kansas State fan this year. His brothers are his best friends and his cousins come in a close second. We are so proud of our tenderhearted boy and can’t wait to see what the next year holds for him. I think six will be pretty great!
