|Notice his birthday boy shirt!|
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.
