We've got a six year old!
We started with birthday pancakes. See what I mean? ALL smiles.
And then I sent the birthday boy off to school with his requested birthday treat to share: snickerdoodle cookies. 12:06 pick up couldn't come soon enough for me, and when it finally did Noah bounced out of room 4 with his birthday crown.
After his requested homemade lunch of ham and cheese sandwiches he had a visitor. Sister Millett, one of his primary teachers, stopped by with a birthday balloon and present. Talk about making a little boy feel special.
Just a little while later we picked up a handful of friends and spent the afternoon running wild at Wacky Tacky. Noah is one lucky boy to have such sweet, fun, awesome buddies.
Noah chose Firehouse Subs for dinner, and loved flashing his "I am six" fingers.
Our final stop was at Sister Fisher's house. She's Noah's other primary teacher and had been trying to catch up with us all day. She too had a thoughtful bag of birthday treasures for Noah. How lucky is this kid?
The next evening we gathered the family together for cake and presents. We laughed that those two brothers on the ends were in plaid, all the little boys were in stripes and the girls were wearing polka dots. So well coordinated!
Noah LOVED this cake.
It turned out larger (and heavier!) than I planned, but was fun to make, especially for this sweet boy.
After cake came presents, and the big smile just continued.
Legos, Lego books, a bow and arrow, night vision goggles...the list goes on. Noah was one happy boy to receive so many gifts that were just perfect for him.
I also made a few batches of sugar cookies for our guests to frost and decorate. I love sugar cookies for any holiday, but especially Christmas.
