A whole handful
Yesterday Zander turned FIVE.
Only five and already five at the same time. I looked at him sleeping, moments before we woke him with a “happy birthday” and he seemed so big and so little at the same time.
He just wanted us to surprise him on his birthday. Basically he wanted to wake up with his presents on
my his bed and we have to wake him up, singing “Happy Birthday”
Well, we got up nice and early …. got everything ready quietly, sang happy birthday and he wouldn’t wake up!!! lol He slept right through the first Happy Birthday, so we had to do a take two.
We went to Wimpy for breakfast (a small tradition I have on their birthdays –
yes even on school days)
Got everything set up and ready for the party. An hour before the party, it began to rain. Summer birthday, with a waterslide / jumping castle. Rain is not good. Yet it worked out perfectly. The party was two hours long and for those two hours, there was no right.. Before and after, it rained. Perfect perfect timing. Someone was helping me out there!
The friends arrived and they had such a great time.
I could hardly get them off the jumping castle long enough, for Zander to blow out his candles and have cake!
As always we let go of his birthday balloons after the party.
I think he had a very happy, happy birthday.
