Justin's 5th Birthday!

Notice his birthday boy shirt!
 Justin turned 5 years old on the 14th!  He had been counting down the days since the first of October.  He knew that his birthday did not fall on a school day, but the day after his birthday he would get to take birthday treats to school to share with his class.  He also got to take birthday treats to daycare to share with his friends at Lynne's house. 

 On his birthday, he woke up bright and early and ready to open presents.  He received a new winter coat, snow pants, a Leapster game and boxes of candy from his family.  He received many cards in the mail from aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.  He was stalking the mailman in the days leading up to his birthday.

 We didn't have a big party this year for his birthday.  Justin wanted to have his buddy, Jameson, come to our house to play and spend the night.  Jameson used to live two blocks over from our house and the boys would play together quite often, but his family moved so the boys can't play as often.  They had so much fun playing together and there was no fighting at all.
The day after his birthday, Justin got to wear the birthday crown at preschool announcing to the class that he was "5".  Also, he is holding up the new remote control car that he received from Lynne at daycare.  Lynne lets the daycare kids pick a toy out of a birthday basket of goodies when it is their birthday.  She also makes a special lunch on their birthday.

Take care,


  1. Wow -- can't believe he's 5 already! I think he was a baby when I "met" you! He's a cutie and 5 is such a fun age!!

  2. It is hard to believe how fast they grow up. Logan will turn 5 in November. Looks like he had a great birthday. Hopefully he will get to use his snow gear this year.

  3. Happy birthday to your handsome guy! It looks like he had a great time celebrating five! Love his shirt too!
