Birthday Boy

Jacob is officially six years old! It wasn't his turn this year for a full-blown friends party but he was more than happy to celebrate his birthday with our family and friends from across the street.Poor Josh cracked the back of his head on the window sill just moments before our friends arrived. He sported his trendy ice pack hat for a good amount of the party.Jacob was proud of himself that he was able to blow all of his candles out all by himself this year. Just wait buddy, it becomes more of a challenge each year!After we downed some cake and ice cream...It was present time!Jake would shake these presents and tell us how much they sounded like Star Wars legos. We would tease him that all legos sound the same...how was he so sure they were Star Wars? Perhaps they were Barbie?! He was thrilled to see that they were indeed Star Wars legos.I had to chuckle when Jacob was ecstatic with the ream of paper my grandma sent him. This boy can draw and paper is a hot commodity at our house. She also sent a binder and hole punch so now he has a binder full of drawings!Jacob was pleased with his gift from Josh (still toting that ice pack!) Josh knows anything Star Wars will do!Willie read the card from Grandma and Grandpa Kahumoku while Jake delighted in his money. He bought a Star Wars book and a Star Wars figurine later that week with his loot.The boys were intrigued with the Star Wars card that played music from Grandma and Grandpa Nelson.Lookin' good in a clone trooper helmet. "I have a bad feeling about this, sir!"Nathan thought that looked fun so he gave it a try too.Nathan reading his favorite book to Jenny. I'm so sick of that book. (Nene's into repetition...) I'm glad it was Jenny's turn. Willie reading a new Star Wars book to Jake and Josh. Such a good dad! (Note that Josh's ice is gone. Now he's just feeling the lump.)The legos were a big hit with all the boys. I'm proud to say that although I've never legoed in my entire life, I have now become the Lego Queen. (I know, I know they're legos for five and up. Leave me alone, I'm still proud of myself!) Jacob posing with the Star Wars ship I built.
Happy Birthday Jacob. We love you more than you'll ever know!

Happy Birthday Jacob! I can't believe you're 6! Don't worry Natalie. I think playing with legos is a secret hobby of a lot of people! When are you going to find out if you're having a boy or girl?
