Today was a beautiful day to celebrate a treasured little life. We had one final day of Six Year Old Celebrating!
D and his buddies enjoyed a morning of Laser Tag, cupcakes, and arcade games. Then, we went to the Mexican restaurant for lunch. We finished off the day with a family cookout. Thank you to MiMi and Paw Paw, Uncle Brian, Stephanie, Amanda, Jason, Will, Kate, Meredith, Claire, Gran, and Pe Paw for making this evening special for D. He is a lucky little boy to have so many people who love him so much.

Celebration Number 3-The School Birthday Celebration

Six Years of DD Bug Bliss!

Being sung to by the class

Some of you thought I was kidding when I said we celebrate D's birthday for several weeks!
On Thursday, I took Krispy Kreme doughnuts (chocolate covered with sprinkles, ofcourse), sausage balls, and capri suns to Daniel's Kindergarten Class for the March Birthday celebration. At our school, we celebrate all of the children's birthdays by the month. Since D is the only March birthday in his class, it was all about him! He loved having his friends sing Happy Birthday to him. He also got to wear the special birthday hat around school all day. You could only pull that off in K!
Tomorrow morning he will have his Laser Tag party, and then tomorrow evening we will have the family cookout to celebrate his ripe old age of six! I am so excited to see everyone! We have family coming from Atlanta, Auburn, Brewton, and Panama City. Wow, there is alot of love headed our way. Can't wait!!

A Typical Night

It all starts with bath...

Bath, which Caroline would be happy to do ALL night long!

Then, we move on to some family fun...this night, it is legos


Oh, how we love being silly at the close of a long day!

Celebration Number 2!

Gran came over today with a special treat for D. We usually have a HUGE cupcake for D to enjoy on his actual birthday, but because everyone was pretty sickly around our house that day, we had to postpone. As you can see from the pics, it was worth the wait!

Happy Sixth Birthday My Baby Boy!

Daniel with his new DS Lite that Mom, Dad, and Sis gave him for his birthday!

It is so hard to believe that Daniel is six now. My sweet hearted, beautiful, smart boy turned six on Saturday, March 20th. I thank God every day for my little man. Here are some milestones!

*Daniel adores his family. He and his sister are each other's best friend.
*Daniel is very intelligent! He is reading on a level F (first grade) as a Kindergartener
*He can do mental math like no one else! He loves for you to give him situational problems to solve.
*Though he goes to the golf course with his dad, his favorite sport is soccer. He scored a goal (the only one for his team) at his first game!
*He has a MAJOR sweet tooth!
*He loves to cook with his Gran and play with friends.
*He is in the 95th percentile for height and weight, and strong as an ox!
*His hair is jet black, which perfectly set off his beautiful blue eyes. Look out ladies (poor Mom!)! Though he assures me the only "girl" he will ever love is mommy...
On his actual birthday, we headed to the zoo as a family, D went bowling and to Chic Fil A for lunch with Mommy, and then to play golf with Daddy and PePaw. He wound up his day with dinner at Stix, his favorite food! He is going to have a birthday party with friends next Saturday morning at the Laser Tag Arena. Then that night, we are going to have a family cookout. I can't wait to continue to celebrate the life of my little D Bug!
