Life and Full.

We celebrated Ashton's 5th birthday on November 14th. Once again, I planned for a small party. But as the day grew closer, so did our party count.

Over 20 bodies filled our little home on his special day. Blessed.

It wouldn't be a party without my construction paper creations, right?

We put streamers on his door to break through once he awoke in the morning. Photobucket

...But our little Power Ranger was so clever, he crawled through the bottom without breaking a single streamer.

So we made him crawl back in and break through anyway.

Then, he opened up his gifts from Dad, Mom, Josie and Liam. Photobucket

"This is like a dream come true!" he said when he saw Beetlezord.Photobucket

He also celebrated his birthday at preschool. Photobucket

Anxiously awaiting for his guests to arrive. Photobucket

Cake, cupcakes, sugar cookies, butterscotch brownies and rice krispie treats dipped in chocolate. Photobucket

His party began at 6.

We gathered around our boy and sang, his face aglow from five bright candles. Photobucket

Another birthday, well done. Photobucket

The morning after, the kids and I had fun playing with the new toys. Photobucket
He said he wanted to paint the dump truck and give it to a little boy or girl who might not have a truck for Christmas. So sweet.

Dr dreadful Alien lab. Boys are silly gross.
