Despite not feeling very well, Will insisted on going to school; he didn't have a fever, and I just couldn't rob him of the opportunity to share his special Darth Vader and Yoda birthday cookies with his friends, something I knew he was incredibly excited about. Will made it all the way until 2:30pm (school lets out at 2:50pm), when the school nurse called me and told me he'd like to go home a little early.
|You can tell he doesn't feel that well - he just looks a little rough around the edges.|
On an unrelated note, I can't believe I forgot to take a close-up picture of the
Darth Vader and Yoda cookies - they were amazing!
|This picture makes me so sad.|
|Talking to Grandpa on the phone.|
|The first card Will opened, from my aunt and uncle, had|
$3 in it. He acted like they'd sent him $1 million.
|Tom & Jerry from AJ lifted his spirits.|
The boy (and his daddy) LOVES Tom & Jerry.
|As did the birthday button.|
(AJ has sent Will a birthday button every year since he turned two.
We still have all five, and I don't think I'll ever get rid of them.)
|A disc golf bag! With a pink lemonade inside!|
|Oh, and discs too. :)|
|Reading a few Garfield comic strips that |
Grandma included in her card.
|Bey Blades from Sara, Jeff, and Lily!|
|A (toy) bow and arrow!|
|Tom and I made Will give each of us a turn.|
|My new favorite picture of Hallie in her|
half-birthday present. She sure thinks she's super.
For his party this year, Will chose to go see Hotel Transylvania with Logan and then have Logan sleepover at our house. The five of us (Tom, me, Will, Hallie, and Logan) enjoyed the movie (though I think I would have enjoyed it more if we hadn't seen it in 3D - 3D makes me a little nauseous) and lots of popcorn, and then we came back to our house for dinner; R2D2 cake; lots of Wii, Bey Blades, and Tom & Jerry; and very little sleeping.
|Not much sleeping went on in these beds.|
Happy 6th birthday, Will!
