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!
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!
