Happy Birthday to me?

This morning when Eli woke up he told me it was my pretend  birthday today and that he was going to have a party. I just kind of shrugged it off and said, "ok".

Little did I know he was serious.

He decorated. (He made paper chains, and a picture of our family. He taped those and ribbon and balloons to the wall).


He made and wrapped presents.


He made me unwrap the presents


He organized games.


And he made us all eat ice cream bars and popsicles for my birthday dessert. (He wanted me to make a cake, but I wasn't really in the mood for that).


He was so excited that he planned me a party. He did such a good job and it made me feel so special. I guess he knows how much I don't like my December birthday, so he decided to give me a party in April.

I now declare April 2 my new birthday.

I love this kid!!!

Happy Birthday, Lessley! :o) What an adorable thing for him to do for you. I loved the pictures. He is growing up so fast. I still remember sitting in your living room with Aubrey and hearing you talk about "someday having kids".... It seems like Eli has been around forever. I can't picture you WITHOUT your little cuties. I miss you. Let's get together soon k?

That was really sweet. Eli is such a funny kid--take that as a testament of you being a fabulous mother.

That's great. I've been trying to make July 18th Britt's new birthday but that hasn't quite taken off yet. Maybe Eli can give Cole pointers on how to make that happen.

P.S. I will not accept April 2 as your new birthday because it would just be crazy to call and wish you a happy Pearl Harbor Day on April 2.
