Graham's 6th Birthday

Friday, the day after Christmas, was Graham's 6th birthday. Marty took him and his kindergarten friend to the Kennedy Space Center. Graham has wanted to go for a while and he loves to get to have "boys only time" so it worked great for his birthday. Marty has some fun pictures from this day that I will share when I get them. But here is a picture of the girls playing with Graham's lightsabers while he was gone to the Space Center.

When the boys got back I had put out all of Graham's presents, some balloons and some Star Wars plates. Graham was surprised and thought it was special, but I forgot to get a picture of it. We had some good Godfather's pizza and chocolate cupcakes and then opened his presents.

So hard to believe that it has been 6 years since you surprised both your daddy and me coming so early.  Graham you have brought so much good into our lives.  I am so proud to be your mother.  You have such a sweet heart and strive to follow the rules.  You are such a quick learner and a great friend.  I love your desire to spend time with us, especially how much you love having one on one time.  You are the best big brother that Abbie and Molly could have. Always looking out for them. I know that you will continue to become a wonderful man of God and continue to teach us also.  I thank God that he gave us you, which is exactly who and what we need in our lives!


  1. Sweet boy. . .How in the world is he six??? Brad saw him in your Christmas picture and said, "That is one good looking little guy!" We love you guys and miss you!!

  2. I so remember that surprise! I'm glad you have found ways to make his day special so close to Christmas. He'll appreciate that as he gets older.
