Had a big milestone this week... Jake turned FIVE! WOW! I simply can't believe it! FIVE! He's a kid now... no more baby, no more today... he's a KID! But wait, I don't know anything about kids!? ;)
Here's the birthday boy (got his school pics back on his birthday)... love this dude so much!
So he picked out Marshmallows on a Stick for his birthday treat to take in to share with his friends at school!
Here's what I made! I felt so special... he was so proud of me... everyone we passed on the way into school he'd say "Look what my Mama made!!!"
This are so easy to make! I could do a tutorial on what I did if anyone is interested.
We started out the day at 6:30am... opened presents then so Greg could be there. We had a busy day in store.
Then took him to school (I was proud of myself to think to glue the floral foam that the sticks were in to the paper plate - no other way would Iof been able to carry in the baby AND the treat too!). We came home and tried to get him to rest for a bit... can you say wound up? Then Greg got home and we went to eat at our favorite restaurant, Sharky's! Here he is at dinner...
Then we gobbled up our food and then went to the Open House at his school! FUN!
We finally got home and let them have their treat from Sharky's... they call it a build-a-shark. It's a rice krispy shark that they send out with food coloring 'paints' and sprinkles. I think this would also be a great idea for a playdate or fun activity for school!
So against my usual rules... they stayed up late to decorate and eat (part of) their sharks! Whew... they still had the sillies at bedtime. I could hear them talking, but since they weren't yelling I let it be, finally they fell asleep at some ungodly hour... okay it was 9... but it felt like it was 1am! :) It was a busy, yet good day!
