Happy Birthday Porter!

Porter turned 5 yesterday! Mike and I decided that since it was his birthday he was allowed to do pretty much anything he wanted. Well, he took that to heart and did the following:

2:30 a.m. - woke up, got dressed and came out of his room. Luckily I was still up, making some Christmas presents. I let him know that it was a little early to be getting up and he shuffled back to bed.

5:00 a.m. - woke up and decided to play Lego Star Wars on the Xbox.

8:00 a.m. - let me know that for his breakfast he would like a coke zero and taquitos. My response... why not?


9:30 a.m. - cousin Justin comes over to play.

10:00 a.m. - cousin Bridger comes over to play.

1:00 p.m. - feed the boys grilled cheese sandwiches and open presents.


2:00 p.m. - Mike loads the boys up and takes them to Prince George to swim and go to McDonalds. (Porter's choice!)

8:00 p.m. - Mike returns with three very happy, very tired boys!

Birthday Successful!!!

We Love You Porter!

On another, somewhat related, note...

When I found out I was having a baby that was due in December, I was quite excited, until a ton of people started telling me that I probably should have planned it better. According to them, a December baby was not a good idea because December birthday's always get mixed in with Christmas stuff. Frankly, I was just happy to be having a baby but right then I made a goal to be sure to keep his birthday separate from anything Christmas. And then I went to wrap gifts and realized all the paper I had was Christmas!!! AHHHH!!! What's a mom to do?!? Luckily I did have some butcher paper, some scrapbook paper and a glue stick and ... voila!

You're so good at scrapbooking and stuff I just don't take the time to do. Those gifts turned out really cute, and very much un-Christmas ;) It's funny how people told you that you should have planned better. You can't always plan these things. My last two pregnancies have been surprises, but it's one of the best surprises you can have :) I'm glad you and your family are doing well and having fun.
