Last night I sent home seven 4-7 year olds after Grey's sixth birthday party--in the requested "army man" theme. My boy is SIX! So hard to believe. He will always have a special place in my heart as the one that changed my world and expanded my heart in ways I never thought possible. He is THE most sensitive, sweet spirit yet balanced by the energy and excitement for life of a fun-loving, energetic boy.

He woke up and we hurried and opened gifts before going off to school. Yes, it is pitch dark outside. Ugh. Elise was as excited as Grey to open presents as you can see.
And on to the party--absolute insanity--I had various missions for the boys to complete such as an army boot camp, popping balloon bombs, pin the medal on the soldier, etc. It started raining as soon as the kids arrived so we weren't able to set up the bounce house and had to improvise.

Jason is offended that cop is listed last. :) I can't believe my little tiny GREY is six. What the heck?! I love him. That cake is so fun, I love it!
