Birthday boy in the house!!

The little guy is 5 years old today!! Wow!! 5!!! I just think back to how terribly ill I was at this time 5 years ago! I do not tolerate anesthesia well at all and got SO sick after both of my c-sections! Jack was born at 10:47am and I didn't even get to hold him until around 2am because I was that sick! Thank goodness for an awesome husband! Chris took good care of baby Jack and me, even feeding Jack with a syringe so I could try breastfeeding when I was feeling better!

We celebrated most of his birthday yesterday because Chris was working 7a-7p today. We will be having the cake tonight!

Ripping into some of the loot!



Checking out his new siren/speaker for the gator and his bike!


The new RC truck.



Testing out the siren/speaker on the gator! Properly installed by Daddy!



Now, if celebrating a 5th birthday isn't enough, he also started pre-k today! Such a big boy!






After school, the two of us went out for lunch to Chick Fil A, where he saw one of his friends from last years class, as well as a new friend from this years!

And, what's a post without some layouts? I did both of these for challenges over at Scraptacular.

This one challenged us to dig into the stash and use some of our "older" product.


This one challenged us to use something clear on the layout. I also dug into the foam stamps, I felt the need for a little messy today!


As always, thanks for stopping by!!
